Cons. Lovely hotel, perfect location, large rooms, loved every minute of it. One constructive comment would be to add a full length mirror in the rooms...

6.8Okay
Sean, Feb 2019

Pros. Location

Cons. Breakfast Buffet was a complete joke, as store bought bagels were still slightly frozen and selection was severely lacking. Plus since we had three rooms, I asked if we could get a late checkout in just one room, so we could stroll along waterfront. Immediate response was no without checking with any of her supervisors to see if they could accommodate my request. SO SAD when a hotel is blessed with a great location and quality construction and yet is staffed by indifferent millennials who have no clue on what makes a hotel great.
