For anyone looking for a large room with room views, this is NOT the hotel for you. The width was just a little larger than my double bed, and the windows opened up onto the wall next to it. However, the bathroom was spacious, and the room was modern and very clean. AC worked wonderfully, large, flat screen TV, and the bathrooms looked as though they had just been re-done. It was also a GREAT location right in Stonetown, and the views from the restaurant were spectacular. The food was also great, and the hotel staff very helpful, warm, friendly, and accommodating. If I ever stayed in Stonetown again, I'd stay there.
