Very disappointing experience. First, they claim to have King beds. What they actually have are, and I quote the words of the GM, "Beds that are the length of a California King." Meaning the width is that of a Queen. False advertising, because that is not a King bed. Second, half the equipment in the gym didnt function properly, and the pool was mediocre at best. Third, we were on the 5th floor and were awoken out of a sound sleep at 5:30 am on Monday and 3:30 am on Tuesday due do the loudest garbage truck in history. But it barely mattered because construction next door started at 6:30, so there was no sleeping in anyway. Fourth, our AC did not work 3 out of the 4 days we were there. Maintenance had to come each time and spend an hour in the room replacing the entire unit. Very disruptive. I am giving the property a star for the location, but that is literally the only positive. There are 3 other hotels on the same block - stay there instead.

Very clean resort; didn't like to have to pay for parking since hotel was already higher priced

Excellent location. Friendly, helpful staff. A really nice place.

Nice

This property is well maintained there is nothing I can say negative. This is a great hotel and the staff went above and beyond to assist us during our stay.

Good breakfast and big room

This hotel is nice. The room was clean, just a little outdated. The rug was frayed in spots. The staff was great. Eco friendly is a bit hard with Covid and the need for single use items. We had a great time.

Nice room. Parking garage is right next door.

We liked that it was close to the Commercial Street district with it's many restaurants and shops. It was also close to many of the attractions that we were interested in seeing.

Great location. The staff were all very helpful , the breakfast in the morning was nice, I think the check in at 4pm is too late.

It was close to the waterfront But, due to Covid, services were limited

Great location and the rooms look nice. However, the bedding was dirty and the some staff can be a tad unfriendly.

I liked how clean it was. They handle corona restrictions very well!

Nice and clean property. Very helpful and friendly staffs.

Easy, walkable & quiet. Great restaurants nearby & you can walk to many shops & coffee!
