Nice hotel in a horrible location. The only parking available for this hotel is valet at $58 A NIGHT. Good luck finding street parking. And there’s a $60 resort fee which we didn’t even end up using. So there’s a lot of extra expenses in the fine print at this hotel. Not worth it if you ask me.

The boutique feel of this Hotel in the heart of Little Italy was centrally located within walking distance from the water to many restaurants. The rooftop bar was delightful - great views - great food - good service. Breakfast on the first floor was excellent! Junior Suite room was spacious and the floor to ceiling windows really allows you to enjoy the city around you. The front desk staff was not friendly or helpful. There was no bell person to get the bags, you have to do it yourself. The standard of sophistication that I associate with a Hilton Hotel was not present. Also, valet at $58 per night is pricey.
