I was looking for a fun venue to host my sister's bachelorette party, knowing that it would be a smaller, quieter kind of event. I spoke to the front desk and was very open about throwing a party, but not a college style keg party! They could not have been more helpful and even offered to decorate the room and make table reservations at several bars downtown. Having grown up pretty much down the street from the hotel, I knew the area pretty well and was very impressed with all aspects of the hotel. It is beautiful inside and out, and the friendliness of the staff can not be overstated. They helped me select the best room for the best amount of money, even by talking me out of a more expensive room because they thought something a little lower in cost would fit my needs more. The party was a huge success, my sister and our guests LOVED being there with our ocean front room. I would recommend this hotel to everyone, even people like me who live here!
