The rooms were very dated - didn’t even have a hair dryer! Felt like because we used Travelzoo rate, maybe not treated as well. Called restaurant for reservations. Told booked solid. Found plenty of table and times on Oprn Table!

Because of health issues, we needed to change our reservation to one week later than the date originally booked. Both Travelzoo and the Galt House were very accommodating with our request, and that accommodation is sincerely appreciated.
