Perfect for me as I wanted to relax, enjoy the art, fort & walk the waterfront and beach. I’m fit- so walking the 6 flights of stairs to beautiful rooftop breakfast/bar and chase lounge views was perfect Those with knee/stair issues won’t be so pleased but there is also beautiful bar, restaurant pool table on main floor.
