I booked this hotel for its central, ocean-side location, the three nights for the price of two promotion, and because I knew Movenpick from its restaurants so thought it would at least be decent. I was unprepared for the elegant contemporary decor, soaring lobby, and the deferential staff. The rooftop bar has stunning wrap-around views of the city, harbor and ocean and is a chic place for either business drinks or a romantic nightcap. There is a full gym with the same inspiring view - if you workout in the evening you catch a knock-out sunset on the treadmill. The hotel is one block back from the waterside promenade and restaurants of all description and price-range line the ocean-front. We were there to sight see, and were able to walk to most of the main historic sites and the plaza/bazaar - although in the summer heat we might have been better to take a taxi. We had only room service breakfast in the hotel but it was excellent. There is valet parking, but do beware as our car was returned with a big scrape - the only thing marring a wonderful stay. (We handed our rental car attendant our autoway toll pass with the equivalent of $30 remaining when we turned in the vehicle and he was so overcome he did thankfully did not notice the scrape.) This is the perfect hotel for business and I am trying to figure out a way to get back there simply to get to that rooftop bar one more time.
