Lovely and pleasing

Cons: Only change I would make was a free continental breakfast with a night's stay
Location: There are many things to do within walking distance: Public Gardens, boardwalk with lots of shops and food, Maritime Museum. Even found a yarn shop.
My husband and I stayed three nights. We used the pool, which was at a good temperature, and the hot tub, which was hotter than any I have been in, so a ten-minute soak was out of the question. Food at restaurant was good, presented artistically but not over priced. Vegetarian options, too. Fitness center had more than the basics on machines. .

Middle of tons of tourist attractions

Overall nice stay. Center of Boardwalk features with those pros and cons. Food in the area was awful but that seems to be typical here. Got worst recommendation of a restaurant for absolutely worst meal of our lives. Stay away from Murphys Restaurant.

Nice hotel in the center of the harbourfront.

Pros: Staff, location and quality.
Cons: Nothing immediately comes to my mind.
Location: On the harbour. Near a number of good restaurants and entertainment was in easy walking distance.
The staff was great! Went to a couple nearby restaurants that were very good. Nice pub near the hotel.
