6/10 Good

Just above average
Hotel is very nice some startling confusion at front desk went to check into room got our cards for the room .except they would not work so we went back to front desk to get another set of cards .we went back to room opened door to our surprise the room was occupied imagine our surprise thank god the couple was not doing anything and were just as confused as we were .it was funny at first but after thinking about it what a huge security risk . So for that and that alone i rate this just above average .these days people get shot for stuff like this .

8/10 Very Good

Nice hotel, quality of view varies greatly
Nice quiet stay. Not all the rooms advertised as having a water view actually have a water view - had to request to get a room change, and that took over a day.
