My best 2 summers (89 & 90) were spent working aboard the Schooner Voyager docked directly below this gem. Got a room in 1992 - proposed to my wife and have been back for anniversaries ever since. The staff is always wonderful and the homemade breakfast is tops! You can sip complimentary sherry before you head out to dinner. Upstairs rooms are smaller but have fireplaces. Lately we go for the newer downstairs rooms with no fireplace but more room and giant double whirlpool baths. We went on the cheap in 08 and took a room without river view and were pleased. Stroll to all the shops and restaurants - you will be glad you picked Steamboat trust me. We normally go in Dec (anniv month) when rates are low - can't say I would stay at premium Summer rates.
