Lovely and friendly!
Posted Nov 21, 2016
We stayed at the Harbour View Inn in November, 2016. It was a little tricky finding how to leave the car (just pull up to the curb where it says "No Parking"), but the entire crew of valets was so friendly and helpful I wanted to adopt them all as my sons.
The front desk staff was equally happy to help, and outlined for us a simply dizzying array of restorative nibbles: hot tea and coffee pretty much always available; wine and cheese in the afternoon, milk and cookies (and M&Ms in a generous dispenser!) from 9 to 10 pm, a full breakfast bar in the morning for your sleepy perusal. In fact, the second day we stayed, we opted to forego the order-the-night-before breakfast to be delivered by staff to the room because it was easier to snag what we wanted when we wanted from the ample buffet in the lobby outside our door.
The hotel room was large - the kind of large that people from the crowded northeast find hard to believe. The four-poster beds were deep and welcoming, with so many pillows that you can throw a few on the floor in the middle of the night and never miss them. The bathroom is large and attractive; it's got a too-small-to-soak bathtub, but it's hard to blame the hotel management for that; everything else is top notch.
The only suggestion I have is that I wish they kept their urn of "hot" water actually hot. I'm a hot tea drinker, and you just can't brew a decent cup in lukewarm water.
