After traveling from Toronto & being a "little" jet lagged, it was nice to be taken care of when we arrived . Our room was switched so that we did not have to wait long & coffee was offered & much appreciated.
Very good location on the water with lots of fine restaurants & bars within easy walking distance in either direction. Lots of pretty walking paths & footbridge makes for a nice stoll.
The room was spacious & lovely with a tiny balcony overlooking the boats. The bar was friendly & inviting, especially our favourite bartender Ben.
The only negatives were the over powering scent in the lobby, which did not come from the lovely floral arrangements. And also the worst complaint, the cleanliness of our bathroom which was corrected, but maybe not as it should have been.
All in all a lovely spot non the less. We would stay again.
