This is a great hotel, if you know what it is. Located in a recently rehabbed building in the Old Harbor area, the best description is quirky...in a good way. The rooms are quite small. We stayed in an attic room overlooking the Harbor. But right outside the hotel is a working shipyard. We found this interesting and a real plus but it is not the same as an ocean view hotel room on Miami Beach. The walls are thin and our next door neighbor was quite noisy. We were there in April during the week and there was very little outside noise. There is a translucent door on the bathroom which might be a little too intimate if you are sharing the room with a business colleague. This would be no problem for most couples with a more intimate relationship.
The breakfast buffet is a bit pricy but it is excellent and a good value. The bar is excellent and the,food is quite good as we ate in the hotel one evening.
The staff were helpful and pleasant.
The location is in walking distance from most of the city sights ( if you like to walk.)
In summary, we loved it but be prepared for a little quirky.
