the hotel and room was nice, only problem was with what is going on in the world there was no room service and no breakfast available, and no discounts was offered for the inconvenience

I loved everything about this hotel! It was near everything and they had an amazing shuttle service. The staff was very friendly and helpful!

Place was new and clean, but we found blond hairs on the bed cover sheet (my husband and I have black and brown hair). Except for that, everything else was great.

Good partial view of the bay. All the staff was very nice.

I checked out at 6:30 AM then said I was going grab something to eat before the cab came and she said that I did not get the breakfast. I was under the impression that the room came with breakfast....but maybe not...she did not help me understand.

I loved the modern style to the hotel, it was designed very well loved the room itself big screen tv and the flooring was very nice. The sent as soon as you walked into the hotel was very pleasant as well. One downside was every time and I mean every time u walked out of the entrance it smelled like cigarettes I’d put up no smoking signs

Brand new and impeccably clean. Parking across the srreet

Great location and ambiance, fast check in/out and valet service.

The hotel is in a great location for walking around. The room was nice and clean. The design was odd - there was a safe, a nice refrigerator with a coffee maker above and iron in an open closet area but no outlets to plug either in. We had bad creamers in the coffee station. But overall nice but pricey for what you get.

I was unhappily surprised by several things. There are some general expectations you have when you go to an expensive hotel; a pool and complimentary breakfast. They don't have either. I'm sure it's technically somewhere in their site, but if they are going against standard expectations, it should be crystal clear. Also, I didn't know that parking was $30 a night. We rented a car because we needed to drive to see family, but it would've been so expensive that it wasn't worth it. It may be also good to note that if you're expecting a view of the water, there isn't one. Also, while the rooms are stunning, there only two drawers for undergarments, so if you bring a lot of clothes, and storage space is important to you, then you'll be disappointed. On a positive note the place is beautiful. The people are extremely friendly. The bathroom has plenty of space for toiletries, the shower is luxurious. Free internet. Instead of an alarm clock (which I hate bc I'm always woken up by a residual alarm the from the previous guest) they have internet options on the tv like Pandora.

Great location, excellent staff, shuttle to take you anywhere you want downtown. Wish there was a pool.

Lovely hotel and location! Excellent customer service and we thoroughly enjoyed having cocktails prior to dinner. Brian was a great server for us- thank you so much!

It’s a nice hotel when you have an emergency and need to stay close to everything. It was nice that they had a shuttle bus to go from the hotel to the city.

Loved the location! The staff was wonderful and the hotel was beautiful!

The room was large, clean, nice beds and a great shower. TV was large with good reception. Good shuttle service provided to transportation and into downtown area. There was a large window and we were charged extra for a view of the water, which I thought was unfair. We had a view of a parking lot. Continental breakfast was good, but expensive, and the only cheaper option wasn't good. We watched utube using my phone account and was unexpectedly charged $9.00 for that.

Only six months old so no complaints about the brand new place. Staff was friendly and everything was sparkling clean. The bartenders seemed a little understaffed for a Friday night, but did a bang-up job. Took the hotel shuttle to the Amtrak. Very friendly shuttle driver!
