Delicious foods, great music T-W-Th nights in the lounge, terrific meeting spaces wide open in the lobby or conference room, outside firepit and upper deck pool for overnight stays. Best of the best in Gloucester and within walking distance of downtown and harbor tours.

Not sure about the gift certificates online, but the valet parking is free. Plenty of parking in the neighborhood also.. ( St. Peters square, the Chamber of commerce is right there, and everyone parks there also)
