This hotel is in an excellent location! It sits directly across the street from the harbor and is in walking distance to the Whaling Museum. The room was clean and quiet. Breakfast was very good with many choices. I would recommend this hotel!

I suppose the answer might depend on how long you will be gone. In past years, they gave parking permit to place on your dash, but a month ago they did not do this. Best to check with the hotel.
