While I happened to be at this hotel due to business in the area, I would definitely say that this is a truly romantic hotel on the bay.
I had a room on the third floor with an absolutely gorgeous view of the bay. Sunsets are absolutely amazing and something that you would want to share with that someone special.
The rooms are very comfortable, furnished with luxurious amenities. The whirlpool and fireplace just add to the overall warm feeling that you get in this hotel.
The trains do run pretty much right outside the hotel, but I must say that even with their close proximity, you really do not notice them much. Once in a while you get a toot of the horn, but it is not like it is right outside your window when this happens. As others have said, it adds to the ambiance and romance of the place.
The staff is warm and inviting. I did not get an opportunity to partake of the spa offerings, but they appear to have a wide array of offerings.
The restaurant is very good and a nice place to spend the evening. I would recommend the patio seating. Go for happy hour and stay for the sunset. You will not regret it.
