We booked a King City view for just one night for our 12th anniversary. When we arrived, they had upgraded us to a King Mountain View SUITE (rm 916). The room faces the mountains and the parking lot. I could not believe how gorgeous the room was! I really didn't want to leave!! The in-room amenities are top notch from the coffee to the toiletries to the extra large fridge w/ 2 bottles of water. And the furnishings are very interesting and eclectic. The yellow curtains were perfect too because the sun rises on that side of the hotel; they offer a nice warm glow in the morning. We enjoyed the ottomans at the foot of the the love seat and at the foot of the bed. It was so nice to just sit back and put my feet up! The suite was spotless, very clean... the sheets were crisp and white and the bed was very comfortable.
The only negative(s) with the room I can think of was a mechanical roaring/whining noise we heard the entire time. It sounded like someone was mowing the grass outside, but there wasn't anyone mowing. It drove my husband a little crazy until he figured out if we left the sliding glass door cracked, the noise magically went away! Yay! Also, the ac/heater units are obnoxiously loud. We had to turn them off completely.
We had drinks and ate dinner at the bar. The hamburger was great, the philly steak sandwich, not so great. So I think the food is hit or miss. We didn't order room service, but I noticed the prices were very inexpensive compared to most hotels I've stayed at.
We will definitely return. In fact, I can't wait to go back. I might try a room with a city view this time. We had a great night, and the noise nuisances we encountered will not keep us away from this gorgeous hotel!
