Nothing was unique this property was terrible. I would of much rather staying at a motel. That’s where I felt I was a cheap motel. They don’t make you aware of any fees such as valet only parking. They don’t clean the rooms. Very disappointed overall!

Under renovation but still great.

Pros: The location and the staff.
Cons: I'm not a big fan of paying extra for wi-fi access, especially when lower-priced chains offer it for free and more expensive ones charge.
Location: Took a short cab ride to a new Indian restaurant that was fantastic, like a being in a movie.
The hotel was undergoing renovations, but the staff provided written and verbal information about the process, the hours of active renovations, and the alternatives for pool and fitness facilities. I believe Madeleine was the person who helped me check-in, and she was fantastic. The view of the water was great, too. The room was clean, bright, comfortable, and well-stocked with towels and pillows. I appreciated the complimentary bottle of water. The people working at the entrance and valet station were also fantastic and went above and beyond to make transportation more accessible and easy for me with a temporary leg brace.
