Fodor's Review

Though close to the airport, this modern and luxurious hotel feels light years away from the traffic of Interstate 40. Sleek and spacious, its interior is a treat. Expect paintings and oversize ceramic works by local artists and floor-to-ceiling windows that bring the 3-acre lake and towering long-leaf pine trees into the decor. A sumptuous sense of escape is heightened by the limestone and granite bathrooms, comfy beds with 330-count sheets, flat-screen televisions with

DVDs and CD players, and balconies with lake views. Hotel guests can use the spa facilities or simply relax in a cabana by the infinity pool.
