I've stayed here several times and always had a good time. The staff are solicitous, the breakfasts are excellent and I love the pool and spa. The hotel is in a wonderful location, with a short walk to the shore, and a slightly longer one to State St., the main drag.
My wife and I recently stayed in the Franciscan Suite: kitchenette, livingroom and bedroom. AND a fireplace that worked! A little faded- the baseboards needed painting and there were some strange wirings that should have been put into the interior of the walls. The rug could have been replaced. But these are minor quibbles- I look forward to returning.
