We stayed here for 2 nights on our trip around New England. The hotel is in a lovely spot on the water and the rooms are beautiful. Due to it being so full, we changed rooms on the second night and I must say that both rooms were beautifully furnished, with seating areas where you can watch life on the water and very comfortable beds.
There is a continental breakfast included, which is very nice and the staff are extremely helpful and friendly.
The town itself is quite small, but very quaint and we decided to visit the aquarium because it has a really good Titanic exhibition, with a lot of input from Bob Ballard. Nearby Stonington is also pretty - even in the rain.
Try the S&P Oyster Company for really good seafood and head out of ton a mile or so to the fish market for excellent clam chowder.
