I loved the bathroom, jacuzzi and shower! It was very clean and maintained. I slept like a freaking baby I didn’t want to get up, super comfortable bed. No lie, I wanted thay bed! It was the most amazing uninterrupted sleep ever. It was quite, I opened the sliding door and enjoy the view and could see the City.

Hotel's Favorite
I was having a very difficult and stressful trip due to several flight changes/cancelation. When booking my room here I mentioned it to Victor one of the managers. He and the entire staff were so friendly and made my stay super comfortable. Victor wrote a really kind note to me and also left some complimentary snacks and a couple beers in the room (I had mentioned that I was traveling for roughly 17 hours and had not had a chance to eat). The room was spotless and I felt safe staying there amidst the virus outbreak. I had a great nights sleep as well. 10/10 would recommend this hotel.

When we get to know our guests and know their stories it opens the door to enable us make your stay a little more special. Anyone traveling for 17 hours really needs someone looking after them. It was Victor's pleasure to make your visit memorable. Thanks again and we hope you'll return soon.

Nice hotel, water side rooms are a nice treat. Hate when they charge for parking and don’t make it obvious when you book. The Parking is not underground or covered or secure in any way. Just a hidden fee when you check in.

Dear buenanoche, We'll work on that satisfied and move it to excellent. We usually get great comments about our restful, and comfortable beds. After all, isn't that what you're here for? We will try and back track you review and see if we can figure out what room you stayed in and double check that bed. If, in the future, there's ever an issue please call the front desk and we'll do all we can to remedy the situation to better than satisfied. Thank you for your business and we look forward to your return.

Going into any hotel these days sends me into a spiral of worry. Living through Covid -19 as we watch the world spin a horrible horror flick the thought of having to stay at a hotel scares the crap out of me. When I had to travel last week and needed a hotel room decided BW. The arrival was quiet warming and the staff was kind and considerate. Taking the time to answer questions and send up fresh towels when needed as hotels only clean rooms every 3rd day. That was fine with me as long as I could request towels when needed. The breakfast set up was quiet enjoyable as well, giving you a nice selection to take to your room or sit outside and enjoy. Thank you, BW for easing my fears and worries as you have changed my mind about the chain and would recommend this hotel quiet often. Big addition was the beautiful water outside the window and sitting on the balcony when I could. Very pleasant stay and staff!
