I got a great year-end rate for $139/night that included $50 hotel credit. The location is fantastic, right across the street from the beach and walking distance to Stearns Wharf and State Street. We stayed in the Bougainvillea tower and our room was newly renovated with earth-tones and high-end bedsheets. Although there is construction going on, we didn't notice it until we walked to the lobby for breakfast, that's when we noticed renovations on another building. We enjoyed the breakfast buffet, which came with Starbucks coffee and juice of your choice.
Check-in was easy and the clerk was friendly. She handed us our warm chocolate chip cookies and bottles of water. We were able to check-in before 4pm, probably because it was off-season. My only complaint is that house-keeping came knocking on our door at 11:30am, when check-out is noon. They knocked once and as I walked to the door to let them know we hadn't checked-out yet, the door was opened by house-keeping. I suggest a longer period of time before they enter the room.
