Model was good. Unfortunately, they were under construction for the restaurant and I'm guessing pool as it was not open. Close enough to walk to a multitude of restaurants. WiFi sucked. Very very slow.

Free parking, room was clean, newly renovated, bed very comfortable, we had a well rested night sleep. Disappointed with the complementary breakfast. Croissants, fruits, yogurt is all you get. Pool was being repaired. Close to waterfront, close to shopping.
