This room was actually booked through RCI, since it has both hotel and time share units. We arrived in the late afternoon, and there was an immediate problem. Although our reservation was in the system, the room was not available through some error. The manager on duty came down and advised us that they had a three bedroom (which was what we had originally booked) in one section, and a two bedroom in the renovated section. She let us look at both of them and choose the one we wanted. We took the two bedroom in the renovated section (the three bedroom was a decent room, but it was a bit tired). The catch: the room covered two floors, with one bedroom and one bath down (the entry level), and one bedroom, bath, kitchen and living room up. Since it was just the two of us, this was fine. The stairs were not bad and certainly not a problem for either of us. Incidentally, kudos to the manager and staff who handled this problem in what was a very satisfactory manner to my wife and I.
The condo was very nice. My only complaint was that the carpets had many stains and appeared dirty (although they didn't actually seem to be). The main area we used had one bedroom with a king size bed and TV, a dresser and plenty of closet space. The bathroom, although not large, was very well set up - and the shower head was terrific. The bathtub also had jets, but we didn't use them so I can't comment on them. Incidentally, this room had my only other major complaint - the bottom of the shower curtain was dirty. There were plenty of towels, wash cloths, bathroom tissue, etc. The kitchen was full size, with a fridge, stove, microwave, dishwasher, washer, dryer and plenty of tableware. This was divided from the living by one couch; there was another smaller couch, and a table that was very handy for the laptop. Overall I was very pleased with the facility. We used the washer/dryer a couple of times and it was very convenient to have them available. We used up the detergent left in the unit and were given another one when we asked.
The location was fantastic. We had a view of the harbor from the living room. We were within five minutes walking distance of the visitor's center; Thames Street (main restaurant/bar area); Brick Alley shopping area; Bowen's Landing shopping area; and the Market Square shopping area. We were a five to ten minute drive from the mansions; Cliffwalk; and Fort Adams State Park. It was also a short walk across the causeway to Goat Island.
I was very pleased with the facility. My only other minor quibble was that you could hear people in the units on both sides during the evening. Not loud, but enough so that you knew they were there. I wish the unit was a little better isolated soundwise.
