This hotel took me by surprise. It was wonderful! The location couldn't be better -- right next to the lake -- within easy walking distance to the popular restaurants and shops.
When I first walked in -- I thought -- how can the hot tub be next to the window?. It is 40 degrees out and windy, surely it is going to be drafty and cold. But no! They use special windows that block noise and leaking air (they said the windows were the same kind that they use near airports to block sound). There was an easy to use fireplace that you turn on and off with a light switch. A balcony that you could sit outside and watch the bridge and ships. In room coffeemaker, and refrigerator too.
Also, I am a clean and smell "freak" I have moved hotels and rooms more than once because rooms have smelled -- this room was fantastic! No odor whatsoever and SUPER clean. This property definitely gets an A+
