Pros: The room was comfortable and adequate. Champagne was a lovely touch. A 10 minute walk down to the marina and restaurants.
Cons: the room was very hot. Despite 2 fans. The ac unit just wasn't up to the job!! It was very noisy and inefficient. The room was unbearably hit.

Pros: The building is a mid-20th century construction. They have done good jog bringing refreshing the room interiors, particularly the bathroom. The staff are all pleasant and helpful.
Cons: They have to do a major improvement of the WiFi band width. My home WiFi is over 40 times faster. I don't expect hotels to be anywhere near that fast but the present bandwidth causes too many things to hang.
