"Good location. I loved staying at this hotel. It had an old-world appeal, with high ceilings, ceiling fans, hardwood floors, and shutters on the windows. All the employees were pleasant. The lounge bar was quiet and intimate, with excellent drinks and service. The rooftop bar was livelier. No on-site restaurant, but there was room service and bar food was available. We stayed off-season, so I imagine the hotel is much more "happening" during other times of the year.2020-02-08"

The room was nice and large, the bed was comfortable, and the bathroom was clean. We had a view of the harbor.

"The hotel and pool area were nice, and the staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. There were no toiletries in our room, and the problem was quickly resolved. However, there were spots of blood in the bathroom; when we complained to the manager he seemed disinterested, though he did say he'd have it cleaned. The shuttle to the cruise port was miserable, and we weren't told we'd have to make a reservation. The drivers were nice, but we had to wait about a half hour each way. We won't be staying here again.2016-09-25"

Hotel Booking Tips
Beware of non-refundable reservations that could cost you a lot of money if you change or cancel them. +Non-refundable reservations are a gamble that will usually save you less than $10. If you make a $90 non-refundable reservation instead of a $100 refundable booking, you are betting $90 to win $10. Would you do that in Las Vegas? -
Don't assume you can cancel a non-refundable reservation without penalty if you notify the hotel weeks or even months in advance. +Often you cannot because some hotels' profit strategy is to get paid more than once for the same room for the same night. -
Always read cancellation policies carefully before you make a reservation. + When is the latest date and time you can cancel without penalty? - More >
When you make a reservation, you will receive a confirmation email. Take a copy with you to the hotel.
The earlier in the afternoon you check into a hotel, the more likely you will get a room or suite that matches your preferences.
