Not what I expected.

overall my experience was ok. The valet people were great but the housekeeping people were rude. the main issue I had is the paid for the premier king suite with waterfront view. Well, my room was on the third floor and the only view I had was of the road and tree line. could not see any water or boats.

I apologize that you feel let down by your experience at our hotel. Our harborview guestrooms and suites are located on the third through the eighth floors, and the best views are on the fifth and sixth floors. However, it is quite rare that a guest describes not being able to see the waterfront from a third floor guestroom or suite. The hotel is renowned for the friendly, helpful service from our team, so it is disheartening that members of our housekeeping team failed to provide a high level of personalized, friendly service, and I hope you took a moment to report this during your stay. I am confident that we will provide you with a far better experience should you elect to visit us again.

Wonderful hotel. Staff, facilities were great. The only thing keeping this from a 5 score was a less than professional experience in Explorers Lounge on Sunday evening. Lack or courtesy and attentiveness by staff. Ordered food and no silverware offered. I ate 15 minutes with my hands. Bar was sticky, disheveled and cluttered. Fruit flies also. Gross

Hotel Awesome...Break Fast Not So Much!

Hotel staff, accommodations and pool were great. We loved our room with a view of the harbor, our daughter loved the pool but must admit we were very dissatisfied with the breakfast buffet on Sunday. At 10am many items in very small selection were out and not replenished until we were done, our waitress was hardly seen after getting our drinks...a walk to Panera would have been much better!

Heather, thank you for staying with us recently, and thank you for the thoughtful feedback about your experience. We're glad to see that you thoroughly enjoyed your hotel visit, from the spacious accommodations of your recently redesigned harborview guestroom with the amazing water views to the service from our dedicated team, and of course the fun of our indoor rooftop saltwater pool. I apologize for the poor service in Explorer's and the fact that the buffet was not properly replenished until your meal was nearly completed. I will share your comments with our restaurant and culinary teams, and we will strive to provide better service than this. I certainly hope that we have the opportunity to host your family again soon!
