Loved the early check in and the view! Nespresso coffee machine a nice touch too

Fantastic view, and very well kept. I would have giving 5 stars BUT on the last night when we returned to our room at 7pm there was a party going on in the courtyard next our patio. This included a 5 piece rock and roll bar band. And it was LOUD. With the windows closed and the air conditions on it was still louder than the TV. I went to the front desk and asked about it and was told "This happens every Thursday night and it is our policy to inform all of our guest via phone ahead of time about the event." I was not informed because if I had been I would have made other arrangements for that night. (No other rooms were available on the property. It is unacceptable for a hotel to inconvenience their guests for hours with such an event so close to their room.

I stay at the Bellwether frequently (every few months). It's a great location and I enjoy the restaurant (or bar, when the restaurant is full). The building seems a bit dated (1980s-90s, I think) and the shower takes a long time to get hot.

It was nice and comfortable with a great view. It was also a very close drive to downtown which is convenient.

Check in was prompt and efficient, our room was spotless and the harbor view is spectacular. A relaxing stay!

Beautiful location on the water. Large, comfortable rooms. Friendly, helpful staff. Inconsistent service (slow) at the restaurant. Ran out of some basic breakfast items (like muffins for the Eggs Benedict...). But - the view made up for the deficiencies. Several other dinner options within walking distance. Would definitely return.

Gorgeous location, beautiful room, exceeded expectations
