Great Hotel, Confusing Restataurent
This is an excellent hotel where I have stayed a few days in February each year for the past few years. They have a daily complimentary sunset boat ride in the Harbor as well. Staff is polite and very helpful with one strange exception- the Bubble Cafe is always a confusing place. There is no host or hostess to seat you unless somehow you manage to catch someones attention. Staff somehow assumes that you are there to spend time in the restaurant and does everything very slowly including bringing your check - so good luck if you want to leave the place for the rest of your day/or night quickly.

Nice Hotel , decent location
Only reason I am not giving 5 stars is because of the confusion I encountered at breakfast time in the Bubble Cafe every day I went there. There were more staff than customers; yet it was hard to get the attention of a server/staff member for anything. There is no sign at the entrance whether to wait to be seated or find a seat yourself - but even if you wait at the entrance to the cafe, no one will come to greet you for a while - bit confusing. Had to ask for my check multiple times.

Poor1.0 / 5
Uncaring Hotel
Bed had a big dent in it and the sheets and duvet cover were too old to use. Room was dusty. There was a single size bed pad- which I was not sure what that was for- on my queen bed so half of my body was on the pad and the other on the other side. The old and rough bedding bothered me whole night so I Could not sleep well. Further more next morning after breakfast, my husband and I found out that our room door was left opened by maintenance. We were so shocked but hotel manager's excuse was the hotel staff thought we were one of the guest who had already left even though our stuff was still there! What I felt about this hotel is they do not care about their business as the hotel is at the most convienient location!
