There are many positives about the Port Hotel: the rooms are spacious, there was a fireplace, the bathroom is huge, there is a desk and there is a dedicated parking lot. The hotel is in a great location and the in-room breakfast was delicious. There were many well-located electrical outlets.
Here's why I could not give 4 stars: the stairs are very steep and there are 20 of them. The shower was like being in a car wash and it was difficult to control the temperature - way too complex, especially if you are tight on time. After check in, we were told the restaurant was serving only a prix fixe menu; the menu on the website was not available. Try as we might, there was no way to turn off the lights without getting out of bed.
Not sure if we would return.
