I feel so fortunate to have booked this through a discount website for an awesome rate. It's right across the street from the aquarium and a block from the convention center. It's small enough to feel quaint but modern and upscale like a top notch hotel should be.
The ample shower is beautifully done in striated marble. The bed is comfortable and the decor simple, with lots of clean lines and warm tones. There are some unique touches that make the decor curiously creative. I love the round mirror slightly tucked behind the headboard. It intentionally seems to remind me of watching the sunset descending over the water.
The sliding door to the bathroom is an efficient way to conserve space while giving the room an updated vibe. Although the room isn't much larger than most hotel rooms we've stayed in, the space is creatively arranged to give it the feeling of being a suite. There is a little sofa, the desk has its own little corner by the front door. The bed is around the corner from the front door of the room, designating its privacy. Someone thoughtfully designed this room and I like their thinking!
We were so thrilled, we booked an extra night. By the way, the wi-fi is included in the room price. Parking is only $7/day and everything you'd want to see is pretty much within walking distance.
