Excellent location. Smooth check in, friendly, helpful staff. Lovely lobby area. Given a clean quiet, upstairs room with view of State Street below. Due to double windows, nice and quiet. Room temperature regulates easily. Clean bath with lots of amenities and good water pressure. Soft, fluffy robes to lounge in, comfy bed. Came in on Amtrak. There is an electric shuttle every 15 minutes from the Harbor/Amtrak area, (25 cents for seniors), but it is also an easy 10 minute walk if you have little luggage.
I avoid sugar and processed foods, so breakfast for me was slim; fresh fruit and a hard boiled egg, but that is the usual free breakfast offered at Stateside hotels.
I was there on a Tuesday and they had a wonderful Farmer's Market right outside the the hotel along State Street. Many, many delicious and healthy cafes and restaurants choices along State Street, as well as cinemas, theater venues and museums within walking distance of hotel, also shopping.
