My Sunrise
My room was small and stuffy I could smell both cigarettes and marijuana through the vents. The fireplace gave out a very strong smell of propane. The view was marvelous but 1/3 of my view was blurred by moisture between window panes

Drifting to sleep by the sand
My wife and I visited with our 16-mo daughter for our anniversary, to visit the aquarium, and enjoy the beaches and restaurants. This is the ideal hotel for all of this activities. The valet parking should be taken advantage and is a great convenience when traveling with little ones and all their gear. Awesome view of the bay from the room and welcome note and wine was a nice touch. In room continental breakfast made getting going in the morning a breeze. Loved the restaurant that provides room service for the hotel. Overall couldn’t have been happier.
