This hotel does not match up with the price. It is in a great location but the quality is less than I expected.

I liked the history and the location. The food at the restaurant was excellent and all areas were clean. I like that there was a valet available even tho I didn’t use it I would have if there’d been no parking available. I didn’t like that the pool was busy and loud at 9 o’clock at night with the current restrictions in place I thought it would’ve been quieter.

Excellent location. The rooms and bathroom were small.

The staff is so warm and welcoming. They make every stay feel like home.

The property is old and run and not worth the price. The sink was broken in our room, no mini -fridge, there was an old AC window unit that dripped water and made a lot of noise. Fitness center and pool we’re both under construction. The only plus is the location and a nice lobby but I would not stay again. The Newport Marriott is much better value.

The property was nice, although under construction. The pool, spa, and gym were closed.

Amenities were not available and not advertised accurately. Over priced for a small room and the room didn’t have soap/shampoo / coffee machine and many other basics hotels are supposed to provide

Everything was amazing, staff, accommodations, flexibility, etc.

The hotel was under construction. There was loud noise during the day and all guests were rerouted and unable to use the front door. The ice machine outside of our room was broken and ran loudly throughout our entire stay. The hot tub was also out of service. We did notify the manager and our resort fee was refunded. However I feel that a guest should be notified of such extensive construction when booking a hotel.

Soap shampoo and conditioner only available in dispensers .. no bath ropes .. Took deposit for 100$ 5 days ago on Sunday still didn’t got the refund ? Plus 30$ for spa service Under construction .. loud plus pain smell Beautiful Hotel under dishonest new owner !!!

The entire staff we extremely friendly and could not do enough for us! I took my husband for his 50th birthday surprise, and they had a bottle of wine waiting in the room along with a wonderful hand written card for him. We are now going to make this an annual birthday trip!

Everything was great except there were two things about the room itself that were not that great. The shower had no lip separating it from the rest of the bathroom which means its impossible to not get water all over the rest of the bathroom when you shower and tjats not grrat.

When we checked in and got to our room there where maintenance people working on our room, so we had to leave for about 2 hours until the work was completed. Also we had no towels in our bathroom and had to request them twice and no towels where ever delivered.

Spacious rooms. Very nice staff. Self parking would be nice though. It’s valet or street parking which is nonexistent
