The outstanding features of this hotel are it's location, friendly staff, spacious, nicely decorated
rooms. The down side is the per day $20 resort fee and $28 valet parking fee. We were aware
of the resort fee prior to making our reservation, however, the parking fee was quite a shock.
That's $50 per day on top of the room charge, for things that do not enhance your stay.
The most troubling aspect was that although the bathroom was very spacious and every day
the towels were folded as fans, the cleanliness of the floors was a big flaw in my neatness
freak opinion. Upon arrival there were spots right in front of the toilet and they remained there
despite our specific request to pay more attention to the bathroom floors. To assure myself
that they weren't part of the marble design, I successfully removed one with a little scrubbing.
It appears the floors are not part of their daily cleaning routine in any way since dust bunnies
floated on the floor as well. It is a shame that such a small task, could affect the overall
enjoyment of an otherwise lovely hotel. That being said we will probably return as there is
no other hotel right on the bay and in such a convenient location.
