We arrived on August 2nd to find it was Fiesta weekend. Surprise! We got in quite late and night and the staff were friendly and informative. They got us in quickly and gave us some great information. The room was clean and quiet. We were on the oceanview side of the hotel and it was quite nice. We had a birdseye view of the parade on Friday morning, The hotel continental breakfast is nothing to write home about, but travelling with two kids...it sure was convenient. The location is perfect - close to everything we needed to do. They charge $3 per night for parking - however even with a very booked hotel we were able to easily park. The staff answered several questions for us and were always helpful. We enjoyed walking to Stearns Wharf, State Street, a quick tour of the City College and the beach. I recommend this as a less expensive alternative to some of the better known luxury brands - although the price was still steep giving the 4 out of 5.
