This is the second year in a row we have stayed here during February. Quite a difference in rates. February 2011 we paid a baseprice of $60 per night. This year we paid $75 and $90 and $150. This was the same week. Manager did not answer the 3 emails I sent prior to arrival about rates etc. At $60 or $75 it is a very good value. At $90 or more, I would check elsewhere. The breakfast was good. Check in was no problem and we did not find the staff to be unfrinedly. Just the opposite..they were very helpful. Rooms street side can be noisy, not so much from traffic but by people on the streets. Public area carpeting needs to be cleaned or replaced.
In 2011, not knowing better we took a taxi from the hotel to the cruise ship terminal (about a mile) and it cost $17. This year we used the Canal Street streetcar to the waterfront and transferred to the Riverfront streetcar and the total cost was 40 cents each. That is the senior fare for over 65. But even the non senior rate of $1.75 each is good.
Taxi or airport shuttle into town averages $20 per person. The E2 bus from the terminal to the center of town was only $1 senior fare or $2 regular fare. For a senior fare, ID is required. Also available for travel around town and on the buses and streetcars is a Jazzy Pass. $3 for all day. Purchase from bus (RTA) or streetcar driver.
