Reviews & Ratings

from Clifton Park, NY wrote on
From the moment we arrived to the moment we left everything was simply wonderful. All the staff greeted us like we were the sole purpose they were there that day. The room was wonderfully presented. The hotel itself was well above standard and offered free WiFi throughout. All in all, it made for a great night sleep especially after eating a delicious meal in Scrimshaw. The location was prime for our early morning flight. This was a wonderful way to start our trip. Highly recommend.
