we spent a nice relaxing couples weekend here. arrived early on Saturday and there was a room available for early check in. the hotel is very upscale and contemporary. nice views of the harbor and well maintained grounds. nice pool, however a bit too cool. the breakfast buffet was very well done, with refills on the juice included. staff was very nice and accommodating. while the bath is unusual it is very large. the opening into the room allows a soak in the deep tub and still able to view the tv.
my only complaint was with the parking. the garage is not part of the hotel. after paying for my car and arriving to get it, I was informed that I owed another $20 because I had gone over the 24 hours. I was told I had an hour lee way to pick it up. we were 32 minutes over the 24 hours. after a brief but not pleasant conversation the garage manager called the hotel. he allowed us to not pay the $20 after the call because of the hour rule. if they did not insist on a half day fee for 32 minutes a may have paid that. I wonder how many have been scammed into this payment?
this was not our first visit to this hotel and this experience will not prevent us from returning, but I will make sure the parking is really taken care of before leaving the hotel this time.
