My family (2 adults, 2 teenagers) spent several nights at the Consulate Suites in April '04. We stayed in the suite called The Consul. These units are situated on the beautiful Apalachicola River, over a retail shop.
Our suite was very spacious, pretty much a two bedroom, two bath apartment. The kitchen was very clean (as was the rest of the unit) and well equipped. The suite also had a separate laundry room with a washer and dryer. The decor was quite nice and I particularly liked that the master bedroom had a separate TV.
There is plenty of adjacent parking and, since the Consulate is located in a very convenient location, many restaurants and shops are within easy walking distance. If you are looking for a nice restaurant with fresh seafood prepared a little more creatively, I would recommend Caroline's.
The only downside to the Consulate is it tends to be a bit noisy (because of its location), but overall it is a nice choice. Apalachicola is a charming place and not at all like the Florida that most people know.
