Our first night here we were put in room 228 which is terrible. this room has a very noisy ceiling fan! One window. The next night we were moved to room 228 which was better, however the a/c was terribly noisy and the fan on the unit did not work, so you could hear the unit clanging on and off all night long. thank God I brought a white noise maker with me to drown that out. One thing consistent throughout our stay was the very dim lighting in the rooms. The lighting system is terrible. There is a ceiling fan in the room which should have a light on it but doesn't. Also...just go somewhere else for breakfast. Our first night they had only raisin bread and bagels with no cream cheese. It's all pastries, no protein at all. It would be nice to have some cereal and milk. We left to eat at Miller's Landing which was awesome!
The ladies at the first floor check in were very sweet. The first floor is for check in only. No rooms on this floor. However, there is a restaurant on this floor so keep that in mind when staying here. You'll have to deal with the noise from the restaurant underneath you.
We probably won't stay here again if we come back. It's my opinion that parking at a hotel should be included in the price of the room. What should we do...park across the street and walk to the hotel? Parking is $10/night. Our three night stay from Thursday-sunday morning was close to $500!
Best part was watching the three cruise ships pull in and out from our room, and also, very close to the wonderful shopping on the Strand.
