We had a ground level room with a king-size bed toward the back. Booked the room for Christmas Eve stay with a corporate rate for about $100. I was surprised that parking is extra, this wasn't mentioned in the reservation, but they said it was on their own website. The location is very convenient at which to park and walk to the sights. The room was small but adequate for our needs, clean and quiet with working appliances. This is not the only hotel we've stayed at with a small bathroom, but I'm 6'4" and the shower worked well for both of us. Several great restaurant and bar choices nearby so I'm not even aware if the hotel had breakfast or not. There is also an outdoor lounging area upstairs from the lobby where people socialize overlooking the bay. Possibly the only drawback is that, while the staff were responsive to issues, I felt like I spent a lot of time in the lobby and still came up shorthanded on information about the area attractions such as the Trolley that is supposed to stop there but doesn't. I suppose it could have felt cramped if we were moving in for a week or if we were expecting Bed & Breakfast type service but otherwise a great place to stay and the corporate rate was great value for the holiday.
