We arrived on a Friday, about 3 hours prior to check-in. We were able to go ahead and get our parking pass to park in their lot ($12 per day, but worth it). They also offered to hold our luggage until the room was ready. We were in a Junior Suite which included a Queen bed with seperate living room area with a wet bar, microwave, and refrigerator. The bathroom was nice, one sink with a shower/tub combo. Good water pressure. Only a few problems (so minor they will not hamper my return): 1. The TV remotes work the cable boxes and will not turn on the TV or work the volume. So when trying to relax you need to set the volume before sitting down and hope the station's volume doesn't change. 2. The person next to us (not the hotel's fault) slammed their door frequently during the day, never at night. So, they doors do slam easy, but if you get a good neighbor, no worries.
Now, this hotel offers free breakfast and a wine and cheese social daily. The breakfast was a standard cereal, fruit, yogurt, kinda deal. Nothing fancy. Sunday morning there were sausage biscuits, but the biscuit was dry from being under the heat lamps. The wine and cheese social proved to be wonderful. They have homemade pimento cheese spread which was great. I don't even like pimento cheese and this was great! I wish I had their recipe.
This place also has a rooftop terrace with a roof on part of it. This allowed you to go up and sit with your drink or just look out and not be directly in the sun. They also have a bar in the hotel, although we didn't utilize it. There is a business center with newer computers. There's a fitness center.
The staff was very knowledgeable. They offered suggestions as to lunch options and even gave accurate directions when asked the location of certain places.
The hotel is close enough to the attractions to walk to everything (the market, shops, even the aquarium), yet far enough of the main street to not be bothered with some of the noise.
We definitely plan to stay here again in the future!
