First the good bits. Great location. Our room on the third floor was spacious with full length windows overlooking the bay. We had great views on the the sunset. The bathroom (with bath and toilet) was small. But over the corridor was the wardrobe and sink. Although an odd arrangement it was good for applying makeup as the mirror didn't get misted up!! The restaurnat disn't have much of an atmosphere but the lobster and asparagus with pasta was absolutely excellent. My best dish in a two week holiday in New England.
Now the down side. There is a $30 dollar/night charged for both valet and self driven parking. Ridiculous. There is parking nearby on Kay Street and Church Street. That was $60 saved for our 2 day stay!! Breakfast is also very disappointing. We went to Annie's for the second morning and this was much better at a much lower price.
So would recommend but with these provisos
