While pricey, the hotel offers so much more than other higher end hotels we've stayed in. The location is perfect! We got breakfast delivered to our room every day and they offer coffee and tea 24 hours! They have wine and cheese in the evening and milk and cookies at night. The rooms are very spacious and extremely clean! Bed...

We spent three nights at the HarbourView Inn last week and thoroughly enjoyed our experience. The location is perfect: right at the Waterfront Park and harbor with dolphins frolicking in the water, not to mention the variety of very good restaurants within walking distance. Our room was really comfortable, especially the bed, which was made up with high-quality linens. The...

We stayed at the Harborview for 2 nights and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The rooms were very comfortable and adequately roomy. The free WiFi, breakfast, wine and cheese hour and lobby snacks were great amenities. We were fortunate with the weather and had our breakfast served in the roof lounge, which was delightful. The location couldn't have been better--right by...

Highlights included meals at Husk and Fleet LANDING - both with exceptional service and wonderful food. Theatre 99 is a must do - so very funny - incredibly talented and creative!
