    You'll have to walk to the beachfront and then up State Street, but it's about half an hour in total. Or you can walk to Stearns Wharf (about 10 minutes) and get the free shuttle up to the Downtown areas.

    No views from our room. We were in the first floor. I would not expect great views, since the hotel is a block or so from the coast, and it is not a tall building.
