I was quiet impressed with this hotel. It was very clean, modern, stylish, quiet and comfortable. It had an excellent location and it was a short pleasant walk to the harbor and many sit-down restaurants. There was a bar fridge in our room but it wasn't working, we called downstairs and someone brought up a new mini fridge right away. Our intention was to buy food for breakfasts/lunches and put it in the fridge but sadly grocery stores were non-existent (and fast food restaurants were hard to find). I would be nice if the Bristol offered a complementary breakfast, even if it is small like juice, muffins and cereal. Other amenities were also present like an iron, hair dryer, coffee maker and safe. Though we were a little skeptical about the hotel restaurant we ended up going there for dinner one night as it was convenient and guests get 50% off. I ordered the steak and double-baked potato. It was amazing! I would say it was the best meal of the entire trip and it was less than $10. The sundae afterwards was also delicious. The staff was friendly and helpful. The only thing I really didn't like was the extra $26 a day for valet parking. I wish this could be somehow rolled into the price of the room and not be a surprise at check-in.
