    Stayed at the National and enjoyed the stay thoroughly. The rooms are small but have a great view of the harbor.the food was good and the lobby reminds me of an old Bogart movie. Would highly recommend.

    The view from the porch of the National is breathtaking, unfortunately the food is mediocre. The menu has many interesting items but out of a group of 9 no one had a great meal. The bar service is very slow.More
