Stayed for a week with my friend who was working. The hotel has large rooms, very clean, fabulous comfy beds with great linens and sliding doors that open for fresh air.
The restaurant was delicious. We each ordered 2 entrees instead of main dishes. Generally the entree is an appetizer size portion but this was teeny tiny. we were asked if we wanted sparkling or still water. We said still but then were charged. We assumed tap water was still. They readily removed the charge.
We then sampled the other restaurants in walking distance on the wharf that were wonderful and a better value. The Sofitel's cafe for breakfast
had scrumptious muffins and sandwiches and great coffee. It was a great value.
The hotel staff is eager to please and very helpful. The gym while well equipped, needs to have water available and a thermostat to adjust the temperature.I mentioned this to the staff but there was no water added during my stay.
