This was a pretty good hotel for the money. Since it's advertised as HARBORVIEW! and really stresses the view, we were quite let down by the actual view which we had. Don't expect to see much. Rooms were very clean, modern (a little too modern as far as design goes in my opinion), a spacious. Bed was pretty darn comfortable.
Restaurant downstairs is way too expensive, especially for breakfast. You'll end up going to one of the many coffee shops nearby.
You have to pay for parking. I think it was something like $17 a night; however, you have to see the parking lot attendant for the hotel guest rate...it took us 30 minutes to wait for the attendant to get back in his office which was really annoying considering it was 10 AM.
The other less than great experience we had here was with the shuttle bus. They offer a shuttle around downtown. The staff set us up to pick it up at 5:45 so we could make a dinner reservation. They said it the bus comes around every fifteen minutes...after it left at 5:40, causing us to miss it, it then never came back until 6:45... Needless to say we were late for dinner.
