Yes, I know, it is a Holiday Inn. But one of the nicer ones I have stayed at. You must get a window looking out onto the harbor. We have stayed there many times over the past few years. Sometimes the weather was so bad we couldn't get out of the hotel. No problem. We just pulled a chair up to the windows! It is like sitting on your front porch watching the world float by. Bring binoculars!
Try not to eat in the restaurant though. There are so many really great places to eat that are within walking distance. That said, if you get snowed in as we once did, it is OK to eat there.
Try to see who and what is going on across the street at the arena before you book. Some events draw a rowdy crowd.
Oh and FREE PARKING! None of the other pricey/trendy hotels have that!
