Stayed one night before a cruise. Dee at the front desk was wonderful. We were a group of 6 roooms and she got us checked in and on our way, with a fun personality. Had a great night’s sleep and were on our way the next morning with a shuttle ride.

When I stayed you are able to park your car there for a fee. You prepay and they give you a tag to hang in your car letting everyone know that you are parking legally.

We stayed two and a half days and there was plenty to do. Shops, restaurants, interesting museums, and 1-2 hour cruises are all within walking distance.

How was the breakfast they offered? And what did you do in regards to parking?
Agree with other comments, Typical standard continental breakfast. Wait Staff did a great job of keep it fresh and stocked. We just needed enough to get us on the cruise. Did not have a vehicle, but the parking lot was very large... no knowledge of parking cost.

"Don't count on a good breakfast. This is continental at its most basic."
"Ask for a view of the harbor"
"I believe all rooms are good, we only asked for non-smoking and our room was perfect"
"Ask for water view."
"I would recommend a room that looks out towards the water, however that is a personal preference. 3rd floor was a great view."
