Pretty good; but pricey
The location is excellent across from the ocean, Stearns wharf and State street. It's nice, but it is essentially one of those old two story hotels they're trying to keep up. I'd say that it's overpriced, but I think that most in the area are. Also, I hate 'resort fees'--if they're mandatory, they should be included in the price. And especially, when some of the amenities aren't available. My wife really wanted to ride bikes, but when we arrived, they were all checked out, and we didn't see any available until we were checking out. There is no self-parking, it's $30 to valet park; I guessed I missed this on the website. There probably are other options nearby, but they won't tell you, so look it up in advance. But, the 'wine tasting' happy hour is a nice time to sit outside and relax. The pool was the perfect temperature--and, I think, saline. Breakfast was good and included gluten-free muffin options for those who need that.

A very lovely and charming place. Everyone of the staff were super helpful and friendly. I was a little disappointed in the breakfast (no sausage/bacon or eggs), but g.f. muffins were nice. Also, not loving that a garbage truck passed by our window at the wee hours of the morning and some workers were tossing large items into a dumpster also at the wee hours of the morning.

over charged
I stayed at the hotel for a business trip I had my husband and daughter with me. My husband ordered outside food but yet I was charged 25.00 for wine and breakfast when we didn't have any breakfast or wine tasting. Personally I think you should only charge that to those who participate in the breakfast and wine tasting.
