This hotel was nice enough for our short weekend stay, and considering I booked it last minute for a holiday weekend, the price was fine. However, it seems the only thing updated is the bedroom portion of the room. The bathroom just seem dirty and old. And the hallways, elevators, and lobby didn’t have an updated feel to them. For 11 floors there are only two elevators. So there was always a line to wait for the elevator. The breakfast area was also overly crowded. For that large of a hotel, I feel the dining space should be double. We stood with our food in our hands waiting for a seat for several moments. Just not a well thought out breakfast space for the amount of foot traffic. It was nice to have breakfast on the 11th floor overlooking the marina though. Did not use the pool or restaurant on site. The location is nice, but unfortunately people like to drive very fast on Shoreline Boulevard at night and you can hear their loud cars even from the sixth floor. In addition, the toilets were extremely loud, so you really couldn’t use the restroom in the middle of the night without waking people up. Our neighbors toilets could also be heard through our room. Also the toilet had a weird flush handle like you would find in a public restroom. I was unsure whether to use my foot to flush or my hand, it just felt strange and dirty. The beds were fine. Overall, just needing more updating to compete with all the new hotels out there. If I come to this area again, I definitely would find a newer hotel. less
