My fiance and I spent one night here. We weren't expecting much, probably because we were originally booked for a queen bed non-suite ($179). But at check-in we were offered an upgrade to a suite for only $30 and it was a beautiful room. Really one of the cleanest i've ever been in! The decor was modern and shiny. Furniture & bed comfy and new-looking. We had a view of what they call the "pond" (looks like a huge lake), juliet balcony, private deck, and it was all very peaceful. Hottub on the rooftop deck had a lovely sunset view and perfect water temperature. They made us pay $12 for parking, which was really unreasonable, being as they have their own lot and street parking is not an option nearby. Resteraunt bartender and staff were very friendly and accomodating. The dinner deal at hotel resteraunt was $23 for 3-course meal with great options for each course and plentiful portions-food was delicious (salmon, shrimp, and chocolate cake)! There is a cafe, a 7-eleven type place, and a few resteraunts within walking distance. Hotel is about 3 minute walk to Eastons Beach; the water was a bit too cold for us, but the sand was SO soft and atmosphere SO relaxing.
Entrance to the Cliff Walk (North End) was about a 10 min-walk away and was truely the highlight of our trip. The Walk's website scared me a bit from attempting the South End, but I'm so glad we did it because it was such an amazing walk over rocks being hit by waves, with the backyards of the mansions to our right. We did the entire walk in 2 hours, stopping quite a bit to take pictures (would recomend sneakers and no children under 10). The North End was pretty packed with people (Sunday around noon) while the South End was almost desolate.
Proximity to the Cliff Walk and beach are definitely 2 major highlights for this hotel; although it's not a comfortable walking distance from downtown area (about 25 minutes).
