We have been staying here for several years, since it was the original Portofino Hotel. We've reviewed this hotel before, but as time passes, little things go up and down in consistency. They don't inform you ahead of time of construction, and when you are caught by surprise they make no concessions in the name of acknowledging loyal customers. The parking lot is nicely protected, but it's nerve wrackingly tight if you have a nice car. Nice touches like in room snack offerings come and go. This time they weren't there.
All in all though, you can't beat sitting in front of the window reading a book and enjoying the breeze. The front 2 rooms are really the only ones worth getting, but in the morning all the wannabe corporate execs congregate outside your door in the common area to be seen moving and shaking the business world. It can be noisy. They could do the same thing in their rooms, but I guess that's not cool enough.
