  • We chose this hotel for the look and feel. We held the rehearsal dinner on the roof top pool area and it was amazing. The venue is gorgeous, clean and fresh looking. There are tons of additional amenities. The staff was absolutely amazing. Felicia made everything work perfectly and was extremely attentive and responsive. The hotel staff from the valets and desk clerks were all so nice and really cared about us. They were friendly and attentive.
