I had stayed at this HIEX several years ago prior to a cruise and found it perfect for a pre-cruise hotel. Since my last visit they have done a complete renovation and it is "Mahvelous"! Really looks nice and the staff is nicer, if that's possible! From the shuttle driver to the front desk everyone is pleasant, friendly and helpful. Location is fantastic for restaurants and a place to purchase some wine to take on board. We had breakfast with our family who live locally at Einstein's Bagels across the street, so we didn't have the HIEX breakfast, but it looked nice.
The bathroom was spotless, the bed was comfortable, plenty of towels and the room was quiet for a good night's sleep. Would definitely stay here again for a pre-cruise night.
