If you are looking for a hotel that is glass encased and absent of soul don't stay here. The building by itself establishes a character which is amplified by the friendly and outgoing staff.
The hotel is directly beside Cannery Row and is just a few blocks away from the piers (which allows for a very pleasant walk). So there is no want of choice when considering eateries or entertainment. In fact, the Mermaid Bar that is off of the lobby is excellent.
We arrived earlier than the 3pm checkin but the staff provided beverage vouchers for the Mermaid which we used until the room was ready, clearly demonstrating the committment the hotel extends toward their guests.
The room itself was charming. Brick, beams and beautiful views......simply fabulous.
