I am an ardent travel and it gives me very pleasure and rejoices. Few months ago, I had planned to move to Luray to finish some my pending works there and then enjoyed some traveling there as well. It was night time, so I decided to take some accommodation and then carrying on the rest of work in the morning. Woodruff Inns was a great hotel for staying in as it had a great worth and food and accommodation is of no parallel as well. I stayed in the Dorothy’s Suite the great one for an executive accommodation for sure.
This room was un-believable too cozy, great peaceful and romantic ambiance, soft beds and pillows for the best relaxation and sleep all were there. I had slept very sound and got wake up very refreshed. The morning coffee and breakfast was really delightful. I would definitely suggest the entire one who keeps the executive taste to visit there and feel the practical difference of an ordinary and executive accommodation for sure.
