My gal and I loved our three nights here. I suppose if you are accustomed to super-high-end luxury, you might be disappointed. But if this kind of hotel is considered a bit of a splurge for your budget, you will love it.
We stayed in the historic section, which is a bit cheaper than the harbor-facing rooms. If the weather is nice, you'll have plenty of time to see the view from the rooftop. We were there in March -- my guess is that the rooftop may be pretty warm in the summer time, unless you go up very early in the morning.
The breakfast in your room is a great touch. It's not a LOT of food, mind you, but it's enough to get you started for the day.
I found the hotel staff very helpful, especially the valet parkers who had good tips for a local brewpub.
You won't need your car for any trips on the peninusla, and the hotel is within very easy walking distance of several top restaurants. Pedicabs are also available.
I hope we can return here. It was a very relaxing and romantic vacation.
