We spent three nights in this hotel while visiting family. The rooms were clean, the staff is friendly and the location is great for walking along the water. The fitness room was also nice and clean, with windows and available exercise classes (although we never made any.) The 'excitement' is on the other side of town so you'll need to take cab, a long walk or a car across town if you want to hang out there, but there are plenty of things you can walk to, and a little water taxi for $6 per person each way will take you to the Marriott Marquis across the water, and you can walk to shops and restaurants from there. Beware that this will stop running at 7:15, though, so don't plan any late nights and rely on that!
Our first room was on the main floor facing the backs of pool chairs, and we asked to have it changed and got a lovely room on the third floor overlooking the marina, which we thoroughly enjoyed. The beds are a bit small, but the room was large enough and we were so tired every night that we didn't mind the close quarters. We had four full sized people in one room and we managed. I do wish the shower area was a little more spacious. There's a nice big tub, but we never used it and there's no place to put your soaps except for one little tray that sticks out of the wall.
Finally, the valet car parkers were wonderful. Friendly, helpful and always smiling. We didn't use the self-park as it was only marginally cheaper. Also, as someone else said, housekeeping DID knock at 9:15am on the day we were checking out. I didn't get that. Don't they get notified of checkouts each day? They never came that early when we were not checking out ...? Luckily we were up and getting ready; could have been awkward.
Overall, I highly recommend the hotel and would gladly stay here again on another visit. It was very relaxing and I do wish we'd had more time here.
