We were pleased and happy with this hotel.
We were told by our travel company to not stay downtown. We did because we wanted to be within walking distance of our cruise ship. It worked perfectly. The hotel is about four short blocks from the wharf. We walked with our luggage but others may want to taxi. In the daylight the interior was bright and sunny. At check in, the main elevator was not working so we had to get to the third floor via the utility elevator. (There are no stairs to the 3rd floor.) We had to walk up 8 steps. The security guard did not help us with any luggage. We carried it ourselves. The hotel is modern and a nice design. The room was same with a nice balcony, a lovely bath. Overall the room was roomy. They put us on the street side and it was noisy. If stay there again I would ask for a side room. The balcony was a very nice addition. We did not eat in the hotel, twice as expensive as the local restaurants. In the morning we walked to the main street along the waterfront and had a great breakfast in an outdoor cafe. It was less than half the cost of the buffet in the hotel. We checked out of the hotel but stayed in the lobby for 3 hours working on our computer using the hotel's faint WiFi to connect to email. etc. They do have a computer center that has 2 computers and a printer. All the instructions are in French which was a little confusing. We had been told to be careful of the taxi drivers overcharging for the ride into the hotel. However, our driver charged us 1600 and with tip, it cost us 1900. Area recommendations
We were fine with the downtown area. The travel agent wanted us to be in one of the resorts along the coast...
