What a surprise! We walked through a nondescript door on a business street and entered another world. This hotel is made up of several buildings that have been combined with ingenuity, great decorating, and unusual areas. What was the alley between buildings is now a wonderful restaurant that is obviously enjoyed by locals, too. Excellent food at all meals and very unusual decorations and lighting. There is a study where guests can go and have complementary drinks and snacks.
Every room is different so it is hard to give a general overview, but ours was wonderful and funky. First the bathroom was perfect, modern, and interesting in its design. The bedroom was very small with a tiny closet, but that did not matter because 1. the bed was comfortable with beautiful linens and 2. there was a living room. This is where the room was "funky." The living room was small but comfortable and included fridge and microwave. The thing is that it had windows and a door that lead right into the restaurant. It was fun to see people eating and there were curtains and also a second colored glass window to give some privacy. Unsure if there was some coating on the glass to shield the room from view during the day, but at night one could look directly into the room while eating dinner. No walking around in your underwear or less! We loved our room and its quirks and loved the hotel and its location. Close to shopping and restaurants and a short walk to the harbor. Much better then staying down at the water.
