This is a lovely hotel, immaculately clean and well-maintained, and in a great location at the eastern edge of the Old Port district, across from the ferry landing - but our favorite thing about it was the genuinely friendly and helpful attitude of all the employees - front desk, bar, shuttle - everyone was super nice.

Organized, well maintained, very large rooms. Water view is really view of the water past the municipal parking garage. I'm not sure its worth the extra money. Free cookies around dinner dissapear fast, there will be none when you come in at 10 and really want one.

Great experience. You can walk to everything. Staff is excellent. Very attentive. Had some great recommendations for restaurants and things to do. Room was good quality. Comfy beds and pillows. Valet parking (fee) was very good. They was never a long wait even though the hotel was crowded. I will return

Wonderful hotel, great service and the location is perfect for visiting the downtown and waterfront. We stayed in room 218 with a nice corner room and a waterfront view. The street noise was a little loud, but not enough to make us move. The warm cookies in the lobby are delicious, don't miss out!

This I like no other HGI that I have stayed in. It is more like a Doubletree in looks, quality and standard of service. We stayed three nights using HH points late in the season. The hotel is most convenient for walking downtown, taking a ferry to one of the islands or one of the many guided tours. Just leave... More
