Except for the reception, staff in this hotel was amazing, very flexible, attentive and well trained. Food was fantastic, short distance to waterfront. The rooms were very big and clean, two nights were not enough.

Right on the harbor in the Waterfront District, this hotel is excellently situated for shopping, restaurants, and sightseeing. The rooms are comfortable and well appointed, the service is very friendly & helpful, and the included breakfast is great. We would definitely stay here again.

Loved a stunning hotel - elegant but homely. Staff so friendly & helpful. The decor is amazing. The rooms are spacious with great views from the table mountain side. Loved the whiskey bar downstairs - will be back!!
