The hotel was very clean. We had a large group and Chris did his best to keep our rooms close together. He booked us for the free cruise terminal shuttle even before our whole party arrived. Breakfast was awesome with several choices.

Great hotel- clean rooms, comfortable bed, classy and modern. The staff were super friendly and even when we experienced an issue when we checked in (they couldn’t find our reservation) they were super helpful and even offered complimentary sodas for our trouble. The continental breakfast was also delicious and had a wide variety of items-omelettes, pancakes, cereal, yogurt, bagels, sausages, baked goods. Overall, very pleased!
