This Hotel is very nicely situated on New River Sound with nice views of the river. It can fairly be described as an oasis amid the surrounding high rise properties. We had a poolside room on the second floor (#22)with commanding views of the river. At this point the kudos end.
This is the smallest hotel room I have ever occupied. The room has absolutely no space for any luggage that doesn't involve stepping over it! The small closet contains the mini bar and the safe so that luggage can not be stored there. The room has one chair and a desk with nowhere for a second person to sit except on the bed which is very high off the floor. I'm sorry but this room does not meet my minimum standards for accommodation. At $189 per night it is no bargain. Room #23 is identical.
The reception area and library were uncomfortably cold (over air-conditioned). The sofa in the library is ornamental with large cushions and nowhere to sit. We never saw anyone in there.
We would not stay here again. Some of the more expensive rooms are larger and a consideration for those who are willing to pay more.
