Great location
Rooms were ok. Nothing special and could use an upgrade. Great location and parking was decent at $25 a night.

Could have been better
The faucet in the bathroom was beginning to break off of the wall and someone had wrote on the painting and in the sink. The sheets and towels had a very strong smell of chlorine that was overwhelming. The location of the hotel was amazing but very hard to find parking, some hotels nearby offered free parking but only for customers while the Porto Vista charges you. Next time I would try a different hotel but i guess it is suitable if it is for a person traveling without a car.

Sleeping in a parking garage
Valet Parking in the center of a hotel is not a great setup! There should be separation between front doors and cars. All you here is doors slamming, car horns and people talking all night. They did move us upon request and were very apologetic.

Basic necessities, clean place.
We checked in after 10pm and left at 6:30am. The agent was friendly and the service was efficient, just what we needed. Room was on the smaller side, had small TV and just the basics- but it was clean- the carpet seemed like it had been shampooed that day- and a little damp still. The furnishings etc. we’re aged but clean. It all felt safe and clean and was a good place to sleep, within a $10 Uber to the airport. Can walk to little Italy from the hotel.
