    Great location with easy walking distance to bars and restaurants. Can ferry into the City so a definite plus for sightseeing. The hotel is clean and comfortable but the front desk staff could be better.

    Rooms need renovation. The floor under the rug makes a loud noise when walking in front of the bed and the dresser area, the room smells musty and the carpet is old. Service was good and the view from the balcony room was pretty.More
