It was my moms 50th Birthday & they helped make the stay in the hotel amazing and special. I can’t thank them enough for that! Also we stayed on the haunted 8th floor, we explored a bit and definitely had haunted experiences. Took pictures and seen orbs and felt some presences on the 8th floor and all around the hotel. Definitely interesting and fun. Would definitely go back again!

Considering we were pretty much room confined because of COVID, I thought the hotel did an amazing job of making dining in more than enjoyable - not easy to do but they succeeded. Great service in the Spa as well, top notch food and service at the hotel and let's not forget a backyard that is second to none!
