My husband and I took a five day, four night trip for our honeymoon. We've only had an experience with AI once, so our review might be bias because we had a great experience that the other place.

Here's the short form list of what to expect: - LOTS of restaurants and you don't need a reservation for any of the a la cartes! There is always a great selection for dinner. We apparently... More

My husband and I stayed at the Great Parnassus from March 11, 2010 through the 23rd. We arrived around 1:30 p.m. and could not check in until 3:00 p.m. We took a look around and grabbed a quick lunch at the buffet. We returned to the desk at 3:00 and the room still was not ready. We were told it... More
