    Close to great restaurants, clean and comfortable.

    I liked this place. Definitely upgrade your room. I did the second level room and it was clean and modern. Honestly didn’t spend much time here but it is walking distance to some good restaurants. Pool was closed due to Covid-19.

    Never Again

    We have stayed at this hotel several times in the past. But the service has change so much for the worst that we will never stay again. From check-in to the room to the constant noise of people through the walls to the terrible food in the restaurant. Unless you were drinking heavy at the pool, there was no service. In addition the prices have risen so much, you can easily find a more walkable, cheaper, closer, friendlier, to shopping, restaurants and waterfront.
