For a short stay, we found this hotel to be absolutely fine. The rooms are clean, and you can walk into the downtown area without problems. As a chain hotel, we didn't expect it to be charming and it wasn't: it looks a bit dated, it's very large, next to a big road, you have to pay extra for parking, you have to pay extra for breakfast etc. We didn't have a room overlooking the bay, so the name was a bit funny for us (the bay is actually not so close). But, all in all, if you don't expect to use this hotel for your special romantic getaway, it'll be OK.
