I was there for a conference. Room booked by corporate. It was just a basic hotel room. The view was of a field. Nothing exciting, but not the parking lot, so plus there. Water pressure left something to be desired. The lobby was decorated for Christmas. Very warm, inviting and cozy. Elegant. Only there one night so can't really comment on the service aside from check in and out. Which was easy and quick. Simple breakfast options. Again, nothing terribly exciting. But it's nice it was there. I would stay there again
