Conference stay

Pros: It was cozy and the room was clean.
The hotel is 10 -15 minutes walking distance from the Conference Center. My stay was really enjoyable and the staff was simply amazing. The breakfast was not lavish but it was pretty good considering most hotels don't have breakfast. It was a rainy week and the hotel staff had umbrellas ready for us to use, I thought that was a nice touch.

What a great hotel! The staff is fantastic and really care to make your stay wonderful. The rooms are big enough - didn't have any issue with the size. It's also very clean. The continental breakfast is nice with oatmeal, some fresh fruit, baked goodies, coffee, milk, tea, OJ. Convention center, restaurants, and shops are all in walking distance.

Pros: Personal service.
Cons: Room sizes are small. For example, the 8" wide sink was squashed between the bottom of the bed and a wall, there was only one chair and little counte
Location: Located on boundary of a vibrant waterfront and a slightly sleezy uptown area.
The hotel staff were friendly and helpful at a time when we were very tired after travelling. The location is easy to find and a short walk from the boardwalk and marina.

Pros: It really is a boutique hotel. Worth the stay. Be careful about extended stay tho.
The rooms are very nice, but also very small. The heater unit in my room didn't seem to work and I was cold the entire night being that my bed was next to a window.

Pros: the receptionist at check-in. She was very pleasant and provided some good recommendations for dinner and other needs-I believe her name was Tracy.
Cons: I was surprised by how small the rooms were. there was not a closet, the wash basin was in a different room than the shower, overall, the room was very cramped for one person. It was clean and comfortable otherwise.
Location: the location was very good, the parking was sketchy and the charge for parking was excessive, proportional to the cost of the room.

Small room but comfortable. Great choice but seemingly thin walls. TV/remote doesn't work but it was still great.

Small rooms, large service

Pros: Hotel staff, comfort of the beds.
Cons: Rooms were a bit small.
Location: Great location! easy/short walk to excellent dining options and public transit.
The room was quite small (about the size of my dorm room back in college), but the attention to detail by the staff more than made up for it. The staff went way out of their way to ensure your stay was comfortable and that you had everything you needed. I wound up there by accident as there was nothing else available anywhere else, and the next time I return I'll be sure to check The Varden for availability first.

Pros: The Hotel staff were very welcoming and helpful. I also liked the price compared to other hotels within a brief walking distance from the convention center.
Cons: Rooms were very small, windows were old, cracked and had chicken wire. If you're used to staying at Hilton or Hyatt this is not your kind of place.
Location: Convention center is about 0.5 miles away. Nice area between the hotel and convention center with plenty of restaurants and bars.
