This is an older hotel but one centrally located: the waterfront is in front of you and the best restaurants/bars are in back of you. Our first room had its two large windows covered in bird "residue" but the staff quickly moved us to the front-side of the hotel--if you don't book the front-side you miss the water view, the Queen Mary view; the back-side looks out on a rather depressing urban redevelopment grunge. The Executive Club area is a bit dismal: offerings are much more restricted that in other locations, seating is cramped and, like other locations, it is not open most of the weekend. The rooms were large and lovely, with very large counter space in the bathroom. The downstairs bar SIP has a modern flair to it, seemed always busy. The in-house restaurant seemed only to open for breakfast but offered a large buffet. There is some talk of another boutique hotel going up opposite the hotel which would block most of the view of the water and the Queen Mary--hope that never gets off the ground. We had friends in the Hyatt which was more plush: only views of the Queen Mary but then that long walk up the Convention Center hill to get to the city's restaurants: we liked our location better.
