The Harbourview Inn was the fifth and final hotel in my US tour and unfortunately the least satisfying. Location is good and valet parking and concierge were efficient. Check in was fine but much less friendly than in my previous stays during my trip. The hotel is smart and classy but was a bit dull for my liking - everything...

We had a gorgeous room with a balcony overlooking the water. Marvelous. Wine and cheese in lobby area every evening! Breakfast free served either in your room or in a gorgeous terrace on fourth floor. Only problem was cushions on outdoor furniture always wet.

We liked the hotel, didn't love it. It was as described, I wish I had checked it out more before booking. Pros: Historic Right in the center of things. Nice room/beds, clean, etc. Cons: $10+ per day to park +valet tips. No typical amenities like gym/pool. Late night/evening staff somewhat disinterested/dismissive General Info: The complimentary wine/cheese afternoon and milk/cookie night...
