AAA Inspector Notes
Crisp and clean lines, this waterfront resort offers deluxe rooms with a nautical feel. Many of the spacious suites have a fireplace and a fabulous marina view. The central pool area has a sundeck a few steps above with plenty of comfortable chaise lounges to choose from. 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: great location...front desk though friendly not ready to assist the business traveler. When I approached the restaurant to inquire about eating they were not enthusiastic to engage me about the menu. Knew the food was probably not good so passed.
Cons: when arrived 2pm-room was not ready. Was informed check in was at 4:00PM. As a business traveler it is very difficult for me to try to work in the lobby. Noticing other people checking in during a 1 hour wait I requested to check in.

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.
