First be ware that when arriving at the Airport, most taxis are Camry's. Can hold 2 full size cases plus a small one. We had 2-3 suiters and 2-2 suiters. We needed a van. There aren't many so be aware of this. Taxi fee was $40.00 including tip to the Hotel. Though it is indicated Taxis take credit cards, ours didn't. You should have cash to pay for the ride.
We search out many hotels and reduced it to this hotel for several factors - included a wonderful basket breakfast that was hung on your door each morning; good size elevator that could handle all our suit cases plus us and location. There was Big Mac across the street. A Market 4 blocks away. With shopping and restaurants near by. City Hall was just a few blocks away. Finding a Starbucks is tough. We found only 1 in town. A drug store was 2 blocks away. A very large department store was 3 blocks away....
Upon signing in around 8pm, the Customer Service person saw the luggage we had, and communicate that we would be more conformable in a larger room then the King Std we reserved.. We were able to place all 4 bags on the floor and had plenty of room to move around. The room had both a safe and Frig. The King bed was very conformable. Room at this time of the year October, was very conformable.
The big bath room and a very deep tub and shower combination was great. Again room for 2 to move around All in very good condition.
Regarding noise factor that some reviews complain about..........we didn't have any. Our room faced a side street. Yes there were trucks around however unless your are a light sleeper you may hear some noise.
There was a very nice living room like place. With fireplace, coffee service, couches, etc. Nice touch.
Over all the people, condition, breakfast, location, met and exceed our expectations. Since we are walkers, we found getting about town very easy. We were 15 minutes driving time to the Port. Ten minutes walking into center of town. You can't go wrong with this Hotel.
In regards to travel to the Port. Be aware that the road into the port goes from 5 lanes to 1 So traffic gets very backed up Your taxi meter is running while awaiting in traffic We needed a van --- is 3rd of the distance (compared to the Airport distance) was $20.00 Highly suggest waiting until after 2pm to call for a Taxi. The Hotel has a room that will store your cases for you....a locked room...............There is no covered area so if the weather is bad, you want to be dropped off right at the curb where the carts are for the luggage.
