Two food and beverage outlets with plenty of seating options and wide open views of the marina and its many luxurious yachts docking within feet of this elegant property. Smoke free premises. 159 units, some two bedrooms. 3 stories, interior corridors.

Pros:
Cons: The hotel was overbooked, which ultimately is the fault of the hotel. They did make several concessions for this but the hotel they put me in for one night was definitely not on par with their level.
