We stayed in one of the harbor suites (room #3) overlooking the Star Line Ferry docks. Was a great location, one of the most affordable rooms on the island, and the room itself was VERY nice. It was a room that did not have pictures on the website so we didn't even know it was an option but were very happy when we walked in. It had a king bed with a separate bathroom in one room and then another small living room area with an eat in small kitchen. All the furnishing were very nice and updated with coastal coloring. And of course the view was gorgeous! The only 2 VERY small cons were that we left the door open to the bathroom when taking a shower and the humidity set off the smoke detectors (luckily was later morning) and you can definitely hear the dock workers getting started around 7:45 in the morning. But again, wasn't too early and we realize that we are in a hotel and that the walls are not sound proof (LOTS of people complained about the noise but c'mon - you're on a VERY busy island with close proximity to everything - what do you expect??). We were right next to the arcade and didn't hear a peep from there so sleeping at night wasn't a problem. Overall, this will be the room we try to get each and every visit. Thanks for a great stay!!
