We recently spent 4 days 3 nights at this hotel. The rooms were not ready until the afternoon so they allowed us to store our luggage and tour the city. If you check in early, take advantage of the hotels breakfast rather than walking around the city to look for a place to eat. There are not a lot of places open for breakfast and you may not want to walk to find a place. Our first room was very small but after speaking to the front desk they upgraded us for a nominal charge to an efficiency (202) with a refrigerator, table, couch and chairs. The room was clean, bright and faced the water. The staff could not have been any more accommodating. They assisted us with tour reservations, bus reservations, dinner reservations. No matter what we requested of them they complied with a smile and were always very happy to help. Josephine operated the bar at night. She was friendly, personable and tolerant of all the hotel guests. The breakfast was plentiful and the breakfast area was a nice size. The staff at breakfast did a great job of keeping the food stocked. This is definitely a place to stay for friendly service, and great location to everything
Ate at Pomodoros Italian on the main street which was great.The Argentina restaurant had an extensive menu. The Lobster House food was good, but expensive and exotic. If you are not into exotic birds or horsemeat, stay away.
