the beds - although we requested a king and got 2 queens
thin walls - heard our neighbors and people in the hall.
Comfy beds - a great nites sleep !!
Neat layout. Great breakfast
I had trouble with getting a room with king-bed inspire of booking about 2months before planned stay.I AM VERY UNHAPPY ABOUT THAT.
The hotel has a 24 hours shuttle. Perfect for 5:30 am flight.
The amenities and staff service were excellent. The food was very good also. Although the hotel was very busy they went out of their way to accommodate my needs.
The only negative was the smell of dampness and mold in the room when I first arrived. Then it diminished as the AC ran for a couple of days.
Excellent service, variety of dining options on site. The design is quaint and full of charm.
Some common areas need some refurbishing.
Convenience. Did not have to leave hotel for anything. Services were all there, dining, bar, physical\ exercise, swimming. Television was excellent. Wakeup was perfect. Accomodation could not have been better. Hotel enployees were cordial and well informed. Will stay there on next trip to area, and would recommend to everyone who is going into that area.
Bar prices were a little high, more than in my home area. Otherwise everything was great
we were there as a large group (all separate bookings) for a family party. The location was very convenient.
The reservation staff -accidentally, I'm sure- ruined the surprise party by listing the names of guests with the same last name when my mother checked in. As a result, she learned at check-in that all her sons were coming for her b'day. VERY DISAPPOINTING!!!!!!
I stayed at the Desmond years ago. The hotel continues to give quality service and the rooms were clean and well kept. Recommend
Very enjoyable stay for a family reunion/birthday. Kristen at front desk was very accommodating upon check-in, and I was very impressed she remembered my name on check out the next morning!
convenience, comfortable furnishings, nice staff.
sound proofing between rooms -- it was a bit embarrassing to listen to very loud lovemaking in the middle of the afternoon from the room next door and to hear them even in the hallway!
The property was well kept and comfortable. Very nice Tavern and restaurants.
The room decor is a little dated, bathrooms could use an update but it was clean and functional.
Lovely hotel, excellent price and staff. Rooms and rugs need a bit of TLC.
easy check out
tired facilities; noisey location; expensive restaurants; remote location of room; slow check in process
I left my child's stuffed animal and it was mailed to me with a caring note from housekeeping :)
They used to have really nice rooms opening into a spectacular pool area. Now the pool is gone, the courtyard shabby and the current pool a joke. Rooms worth about 50 bucks more
Very Convienent as a park & fly
Time to remodel
The staff was very helpful and professional. The orange juice was excellent! The room very clean!
I stayed at the presidential suite, I thought the cabinet should have had some dishes, silverware napkins, a tablecloth for the dining room table and fresh flowers for the table
Front Desk Receptionist was unfriendly and did not seem to want to be there.
The staff were very friendly and helpful. The facilities were execellent. The room was very comfortable and clean. Location near the airport was a big plus.
The only negitive was the leaking roof in the common area. This happens everywhere at sometime and did not detract from the over all execellent rating I gave the facility.
Bed was comfortable Staff were attentive
Air conditioner did not work well. Toilet flush was poor
Room service was very nice
Check in no one at counter had to wait there and call into the back to get someone's attention
