Dear Serita, Thank you for the great review and we look forward to you returning. Just to clarify, those ARE real eggs. It's just that we can only cook them in a microware. They get a little fluffy and feel different in the mouth. But trust us those are real, pasteurized eggs. Try whipping an egg with a little water at home and cook them in the microwave. You'll get the same result. We've started adding ham or peppers and it helps. Thank you and we look forward to your next visit.

Dear Judy, Thank you for the great positive comments regarding our hotel. We fully agree that our location is superior because we offer beautiful water views and comfortable surroundings, and yet are close to downtown, the airport and Jack London Square.
