We thought this place was a bit odd: The building was fine, as it looks in the photos, but it didn't quite have the atmosphere it seemed to promise. It was as though it was built to look old, but in fact it was regular, sterile and a bit plasticky, so not as lovely as we had expected. We had...

On August 22 I called the reservation desk to obtain a Deluxe King Suite for our wedding anniversary celebration. For the one night it was $289 plus tax. On Groupon, I could have had the same room for $199, but sadly that rate was not available for the date I needed, so being a romantic person, I decided to pay...

This is a beautiful place to stay. Unfortunately, we had not planned ahead (our own faults) and came in for one night when there was one available room. We were told we would be able to stay only that one night because they were booked up the following nights, and that we would be put in a nice room in...

Had the pleasure of spending the weekend with my Lady at this impressive property. Every aspect of this hotel is clean, bright and delightful. The Staff was friendly and very knowledgeable about where to eat and what to see. It felt more like spending the weekend with friends than staying at a hotel! The room was beautiful and well appointed...

This hotel is a wedding destination. We went there to attend a wedding and 6 other weddings were held in the time we were there. Unfortunately, the some of the rooms are right across from the banquet hall and the DJ's just blast the music until midnight. The hotel provides ear plugs for the unlucky quests who have booked rooms...

This is a great hotel right across the street from the Harbor. The room we stayed in was a suite with a sitting area that had a wet bar, refrigerator and microwave. The bed was amazing and so cumfortable I didn't want to get up in the morning. The staff at the front desk was very helpful and greeted us...

I took a date here for a romantic getaway and we booked the deluxe king suite which was located on the second floor with great panoramic ocean views from the private balcony.

This is our 2nd time at this beautiful hotel. We can't say enough about it. The location is great, right next to the waterfront with many great restaurants within a short walk.
