So let me start by saying I do love it here, but you must adjust your thinking to the genre of boutique hotels.
#1 only the suites have air conditioning (which is really ONLY an issue in the summer the air is cool due to the proximity of the ocean)
#2 there really are not any great views from any room -you are in downtown
#3if you get a regular room it will be uncomfortably SMALL(the rooms on the balconys are larger and are very quaint), and the suites are very comfortable, clean, and dated (well kept, but very dated) I believe some of the multiple room suites are updated. Also do not get a room on the north side of the building you share an alley with a popular (and quite good) restaurant = noisy!
#4 if you eat at the hotel restaurant you must have the coconut cake it's amazing!
#5 you are only a 5minute walk to the beach!
All to say the city- you will fall in love with, and the hotel is very sweet! I would highly recommend it with the afore mentioned warnings!
