This hotel has a lot going for it: a good location, rooms with bay views, a friendly staff, a decent bar. However our recent stay was a nightmare, thanks to an unacceptable elevator system. It was not unusual to wait at least ten minutes, only to have the elevator be full when the door opened. People began using the service elevator or stairs, but carrying luggage down from the 5th floor is not our idea of a fun time. If this had happened once or twice, I would have no issue, but this was the rule rather than the exception. Until this problem has been resolved, this is a hotel to avoid.
