Disappointed in the stay
The parking was bad. You had to call the desk when you got to the hotel so that someone could open the gate for you. Conveniently the hotel has a nice restaurant and bar, but the service was horrible. They took way too long to get your drinks or food. The waitress at the restaurant was not friendly and snobby. I paid extra for a bay view. Don’t pay extra. The view of the bay was so small because there were other buildings in the way. I was so disappointed in the view. I doubt I will ever stay at this hotel again.

Had a nice time
Rooftop bar/restaurant was awesome. Great views and food. The pool was okay. It was small and only under 4 feet deep. Waitress was attentive. I was a little bummed with check in, he asked if there was a reason for the trip and stay and as my husband hands his ID for check in I mention that it’s literally my husbands birthday that day and was hoping they would give him something special but he just said happy birthday. First night there, our neighbor was crying and yelling at her family for a little over an hour. This was around 11:30pm till about 12:30am. I was about to call front desk about their noise but someone must of beat me to it because it was dead silent after. I let the woman who checked us out know about it but she just apologized briefly and changed the topic. Parking is weird, had to ask at check in and he did run down all the options. Their prices were ridiculous so we opted for other cheaper solutions. Gym was still not open due to covid. No resort fees which I was pleased about. Their beds were great, very comfy!

Awesome experience
If I could give this hotel 100 stars I definitely would! The view from the hotel room was stunning. Such a great place to stay, and it’s also in a great area with lots of stores and restaurants only 3-5 minutes away walking distance! The guest services were also phenomenal. We had a wonderful time here and would highly recommend staying here.

Good 6.0
Started off in the typical way with check in and obtaining a parking spot for the car. I know with Covid-19 amenities are scarce and the gym was closed expectedly but the pool which was advertised to close daily at 9pm suddenly closed at 6pm when my friends and I were there. The biggest issue I had was when it came down to leaving the room for the day and leaving the placard outside the door for room service. We left in the morning and returned about dinner time and discovered the room was left in the same condition. Definitely not how you want to return to a room when you book a junior suite there...

The rooms were nice and clean. The parking is horrible. The pool was okay. There’s lots of rules. The worst part is your CAN’T just order drink without purchasing food. Just another way for them to make money 🙄
