I enjoyed this hotel and the location, we had a king room overlooking the water. My husband enjoyed seeing the bridges open to allow the boats through. There are frequent trains, but they did not bother us as we live near a train that passes by at home so we are accustomed to this sound. It was a bit noisy because the patio below had people hanging out partying until after 2am so if you are a light sleeper I would recommend a city view for this reason. They did supply ear plugs which is nice.
Ken Stewarts for lunch was not all I expected it to be, the food was just ok. My husband had lobster sandwich, onion soup, and it was too rich and fairly greasy. I had a kale salad which was good, but the mushroom appetizer was oily and bland. Lago was much better, significantly cheaper, and we sat outside I would recommend Lago over Ken Stewart's if I had to choose. Lago we shared a caesar salad and scallops with kale and polenta both wonderfully prepared.
The location was nice for a morning walk and the hotel offered a breakfast that was cafeteria style, we went to XYZ tavern on Detroit Ave instead which was nice. We enjoyed the West Side Market for a bit also, bring a cooler if you are from out of town and want to buy meat or seafood.
The bar at the hotel is great with wonderful drinks, I highly recommend the Reese's Pieces martini it was heavenly and I don't normally indulge in such a thing but I just had to try it. It was fun and different. The staff were all great. We would stay here again if we had to but we actually prefer the Marriott Key. Just a preference I guess, overall there was nothing wrong it is just different than what we are accustomed to. We were glad we stayed to try out something new, and I do like the area this is in.
