Very nice hotel that seems more fitting for business/conferences than leisure. Rooms were large, clean and recently updated. My bay front room provided picture-worthy views, particularly during sunset, and the room amenities (mini fridge, numerous electrical outlets, new TV, etc) were better than many four star hotels I've encountered. Fantastic gym, decent locker room and pool (although the pool area was limited in size). Also, the front desk was very friendly and helpful.
Two areas were a bit lacking for me. First, I found it frustrating that the pool area did not have any wireless availability. For $10/day, you would expect wifi throughout premises.
Secondly, the room walls are very thin. I could hear my neighbors' pleasurable evening as if I were in the room with them. Also, I could hear people in the hallways from my room, and from the hallways could hear conversations from those in rooms. If you're a light sleeper, I would think twice about staying here. If you're holding a business call from your room, I would keep your voice down.
Overall, for the price (~120/night) this hotel was excellent.
