Had a meeting with a super team of advisors. Need a place downtown that was right in the middle of everything. This is super convenient - but not overly utilitarian. Very friendly and helpful staff! Valet parking available.

I have not stayed in the hotel as I am a local. But I do love the bar and the lobby. Had drinks there several times and their martinis are cold and satisfying. Many of the hotels downtown have great little bars with music at times. Many of the locals visit them. I like them to meet people from all over. This is a rather new hotel in town but very trendy and youthful.

Cool vibe and pretty sheik. Comfortable bed and great water pressure. The location makes for easy walking to the marina and surrounding area. Live music was a nice touch, but important to keep the volume in check of the musicians. It is a lobby not a performance center.

I have to start out by saying this hotel is amazing. The staff is the most nicest hotel staff I’m met in a long time. I ended up needing medical care and the front desk was amazingly calm for my untimely situation. This was not due to anything at the hotel or any kind of accident, but I reached out to them because I was alone. I never did get the ladies at the front desk names, but one would ask me everytime she seen me after how I was and if I felt ok. She’s an amazing person and she made my experience so much better. The hotel cleaning staff was nice and chit chatted as we rode the elevator together. The maintainance man Paul went well over his kindness by helping with everything needed for the event I was attending.
I do have to say a few things. They provide the rooms with coffee, liquid creamer, and sugar or whatever... the creamer had went bad from sitting for I don’t know how long. I made a cup and poured the creamer and it was lumpy. I had to throw out the coffee and then wait to find a Starbucks. Later I drove to a Publix and bought my own creamer. I just didn’t want to get any sicker than I had felt. I would suggest that more coffee and sugar be offered without the housekeeping service. 2 cups just would not normally do it for me, but I made it through with one. The shampoo and conditioner in one... nope don’t use it unless you’re a man or woman with no hair. I accidentally left my shampoo and conditioner at home, so I used theirs it took me 30 minutes to brush my hair and half of my hair was pulled out with the brush. I was glad they had some, but I just suggest you don’t use it unless in dire need. They do sell items downstairs that you can charge to your room incase you forgot something, but I didn’t look to see what they were. Another thing, remember there is no other parking except for 5 spots at the front of the building that aren’t timed and you don’t have to pay. Valet is kind of required and is $15/night. They will charge to your room which is nice, but it’s certainly something nice to know a head of time. The hotel is no smoking anywhere on property. So regardless of the drink outside by the pool on the 8th floor or out by the fire pit and mingling area. You have to go out to the street if you want to have a cigarette. If your looking for lunch make sure you eat somewhere else. They don’t offer any actual food in the day time. The fruit and cheese platter I paid over $9 out by the pool, I would say nay on that one. Would suggest to them to go buy some better fruit. But I wasn’t feeling well so I tried eating it. Ended up getting wasted in my room after.
It was certainly an experience and the room was clean so I’m very happy with that. Next time I will be more prepared and will bring some things for the room fridge, snacks, creamer, and I’ll ask the desk for more coffee.
