I learned about the spacious two-room suites at the Harbour Towers years ago from a colleague and have wanted to stay there ever since. My wife and I finally made the trip last week, along with our infant son, and the accommodations were ideal for our needs.
The hotel is a little dated and the furniture a bit worn, but overall everything is clean and in okay condition. Moreover, the hotel has several advantages that are hard to beat:
- location just a block from the Clipper and Black Ball ferry terminals
- spacious two-room suite (ideal for letting our son go to sleep early in the bedroom while we stayed up in the living room)
- kitchenette - we made most of our meals in the room, using groceries purchased from the Thrifty Foods that is a 10 minute walk away
- view - definitely worth paying extra for a upper floor room with a view in this location. Our harbor view was simply unbeatable.
There was a note posted in the room stating that "soft renovations" are being done throughout the hotel. It can definitely use whatever work/money they want to put into it, but you will be happy as long as you are okay with trading a little bit of quality in order to get the amenities described above.
Finally, the workout room is top notch and the indoor pool appeared decent. My wife did comment that the hot tub was not actually hot during our stay.
