We stayed one night on a Friday. The location is close enough to walk to Little Italy but away from the crowd. The hotel seems to have been recently updated and everything was clean and in good condition. The room was very nice, the beds and linens were very nice and

We opted to stay at this location to be near our cruise ship. A fairly typical HI Express but of an older sort. Neighborhood had restaurants nearby from which to choose as well as close proximity to waterfront.

Good Morning mrjeremy2019, Wow! What an amazing review, thank you so much for taking time to go into detail on what worked for you and what did not. With so much detail it helps me see what we can improve and what we should not. The parking attendant are at their stand from 5 am to 8 pm. After hours your room key will provide access. I do agree that parking is a little tight. Since it is the property's foundation it make it difficult to expand. Once again thank you so much for your review and we look forward to seeing you again in future stays to come. Best Regards, Courtney M Loyalty Champion/Supervisor
