"Rooms with view toward the marina are the best. Corner suites are huge and give you the feel of home."

"Room with a view of the marina and bay, if possible, but avoid a room overlooking the valet."

"Top floor won't give you the best views of the pool area which is in the center of 4 connected buildings."
