There are over a dozen of affordable hotels in the region that will suit your wedding needs if you so seek.  But when you have a certain level of taste, expectation, you can’t settle for anything else!

From the moment you pull up to the front entrance you are mesmorized by its beauty, decor, architecture and customer care. It is no wonder that the brand continues to be a choice for those elite and well-to-do of the region and its surrounding neighbors.
