    Superb 9.0 From 760 reviews

    Very Good 8.0
    Don't stay on the 11th floor!
    The hotel was very nice and the room was comfortable. We enjoyed the view of the water and the Wharf. The only downfall was that we were on the 11th floor which was right under the bar on the 12th floor. When we came back to the room around midnight there was loud music thumping and what sounded like chairs or stools constantly being moved around above our heads. The music went on until almost 2 am. We didn't complain as we were settled in for the night and didn't want to switch rooms that late. We would stay here again but we would request a lower floor.

    Simply Terrific
    Warmly welcoming, sincerely friendly, helpful staff all around. Attractive lobby, restaurant, and rooms. Spacious rooms with excellent bedding, nearly silent HVAC, and quiet hallways. Dinner and brunch at Kith and Kin restaurant were both stellar experiences, and I hope to repeat soon.

    Excellent service, clean, comfortable hotel. Rooms were quiet. Nothing to complain about at all. We did not eat in the hotel but would definitely go back.

    Beautiful hotel
    This is a really nice hotel in a great location. Walking distance to numerous restaurants and attractions. The rooms are much larger than I expected and beautifully appointed. The bathroom had a large soaking tub and separate shower.

    Comfort with a view
    The beds and pillows we're super comfortable, and the staff was friendly, polite, and very accommodating. They even upgraded us to a room w/a river view for free because we were celebrating my son's birthday! My only dislikes were I could hear other guests talking in the hallway, and one of the metal rods on the shampoo holder in the shower fell off while I was showering.
