This hotel is in a great location, very convinent for the conference I was attending at the convention center. The lobby, pool area, and deck bar were all very pretty, clean, and relaxing. The room was a decent size, and seemed clean. Here are a few issues I had with the hotel:
1. Parking is exspensive. You pay for both self parking and valet. I did recieve a discount on self parking through the conference but still, I am always miffed when charged to park myself on someone's black top.
2. While the food and drinks at the G bar (on the pool deck) tasted good, they were exspensive. One day I paid $41 for threee drinks! So if you don't mind $13 drinks and $18 burgers, you will be ok.
3. The shower head and faucet in the bathroom was extremly rusted, it just looked bad. I am assuming since I was on the side of the building facing the water, the rust may have been caused by the salt in the air, but still, it looked bad.
4. This is not really the hotel's fault, but still added to my meh attitude towards the place. I had a first floor marina view room, which look out onto the inlet. Beautiful right? Well it would have been if there hadn't been a 100ft private yacht directly in front of my patio. (see picture) The worse part was when they started doing refurbishment on the yacht, and piles and piles of trash were left directly in front of my patio, so I got to stare at the trash for most of my trip.
If you don't mind spending some cash, this place my suit you, but it is not for those looking for value.
