No hotel will get rated as perfect by me, unless it was fantastic AND free!
But this stay was definitely a great one. To start with, I believe all of the rooms were suites. This means that on top of your bedroom (which itself is the size of a small hotel room), you get another decent sized living room area. There was a couch, chair, footstool, work table, fridge, sink, and more! Both the living room and bedroom had nice sized flat screens. The bathroom was huge. Even the shower head was probably 7' up for you tall folks.
The room was nearly spotless (I did see one small stain on the footstool). The beds were comfortable and the pillows were fluffy, not flat like you find in some hotels.
We enjoyed exclusive use of the swimming pool and hot tub, as no other guests were using them at the time. The same would have been true for the extensive workout room, if we actually had felt like exercising.
Our stay included a happy hour with free drinks and appetizers. Unfortunately we had dinner plans so we had to pass on that. But the complimentary breakfast was very nice! There was even an omelet station where a chef would prepare your made to order omelet. The only negative I could give it was the lack of bacon or sausage. That being said, there were plenty of other choices, so it wasn't that much of a negative.
One thing to be aware of: Parking. You can park on the street (if you find a spot) or they have valet parking for $15. There is no self park lot.
Overall I would say this is a great place to stay. If the prices fit your budget (they are not cheap, but also they are not too expensive), than I would highly recommend this place. We usually stay at the Harbor Suites across the street, but we happened to get a special deal on this place and we are happy we took it. It was as good as, or better than, the Harbor Suites (which I also have highly recommended). You cannot go wrong with either place.
