Great location Beautiful hotel and the welcome cookies are a nice treat too
Walls are soo thin you can hear your next door talking. It’s not good for a light sleeper.
Fantastic location directly across from fisherman's wharf and adjacent to the seasonal ice skating rink. Loved the hot tub at night as well.
Full beds in the bedroom - would have enjoyed a bit more space, difficult to sleep two to a bed.
The room and view were exceptional.
