It was unseasonably cold and rained the whole trip. Still, we thought it was wonderful, tho overpriced. Warning: map to dock is poor and there's no visible sign out front.

We stayed at the Quality Inn Suites and Convention Center; it is about 8 blocks from the marina. It has a restaurant onsite and a full breakfast came with the room. The hotel has a van; they may take you to the marina.
