    We had our reception at the Solara and it was beautiful. More than that, the staff was so helpful. Sarah promptly answered any emails sent her way and always provided service above and beyond. While staying at the hotel, we also received excellent service. It is a beautiful venue.

    Note: there is no restaurant on site. This was a plus for us as we could use a caterer of our choice and could bring in our own alcohol. However, there is no cooking facility because of that.

    The suites are beautiful! responsiveness of staff can take some time. The staff are professional but perhaps not enough staff. Room cleaning required reminder and was not very organized at all. Check-in times were delayed as rooms were not ready.
