This is a lovely small hotel in a beautiful part of town, with exquisite views out over the city and the bay. Our third floor room was spacious and comfortable, and had not only had *lots* of power outlets, but the outlets were in full view and did not need to be liberated from lamps or clock radios. A *huge* plus! It also had a white sound machine, the need for which soon became evident: traffic noise from the street, construction (houses nearby are undergoing extensive renovation), garbage trucks, etc. Our room faced south - other exposures may turn out to be much quieter. The buffet breakfast is in a league well above almost all we have seen. Lots of little pastries and breads (no gluten free, alas), cheese, deli meats, hot cereal, wide array of condiments (clotted cream or lemon curd, anyone?), cottage cheese, hard-boiled eggs, and even sheep's milk yogurt!
The staff is friendly and helpful. When we arrived minus luggage in the midst of the Arctic vortex travel chaos, Julio, the hotel's driver, offered to wait for us until it arrived on separate flights nearly two hours later, saying he didn't have another pickup for a while anyway. His patience and kindness were much appreciated.
The neighborhood is flat out gorgeous.
