Cool old building, great staff during the day but so-so at night. No coffee in the lobby and coffee bar down the hall had good pastries, but coffee not so much. This is a fun area right on the water.

We ended up having to take a cold shower. The room was dust y and there were bugs located on the window seal. The window in the room wouldn’t close and the room was freezing so I had to put the heat on

Expensive, yet poor amenities. No coffee maker in room. Had to ask for refrigerator. Pool was closed for season and we had not been informed in advance. Resort fee still charged even though pool was closed. Windows didn't open.

This property has so much potential. It was dirty, tired, smelled in halls. Great location however. Someone needs to totally revamp this place it has great potential. Staff was good. Nice. Snacks open late. Price way too high for this joint.

We were not happy about the $65.00 valet parking and in and out charges if you want to use your car again ( parking on the street was $55.00 a day as a option!!!!) the curtains lining had holes in it that let sunshine thru in the am … the toilet paper was so thin my fingers poked thru!!! Way over priced for the amenities ..I will never stay here again.
