We stayed here for 4 nights prior to our cruise. We chose not to use the hotel airport shuttle as the bus was at the stop when we left the terminal. It was so easy and only $2.50 each.
The hotel is within walking distance of lots of restaurants in Little Italy. The trolley stop is less than 5 minutes walk. For an initial $2 for a refillable compass card and $6 for a day pass you can ride the buses and trolleys all day.
The hotel is also walking distance from the cruise terminal or you can ride the hotel shuttle.
Our room was clean and spacious with a comfortable bed. Complimentary tea and coffee making facilities are provided and refilled daily. Our room also had a fridge and microwave.
Breakfast is provided in the adjoining Bayside Grill. The breakfast consists of cereals, porridge, fresh fruit, yogurt, croissants, pastries, muffins scrambled eggs and 2 other hot options which changed daily between sausage, bacon, pancakes, churros etc. The breakfast is more than adequate to set you up for the day.
The hotel's pool is in a quadrant open to the elements. I used it and found the pool to be on the cool side but bearable and the hot tub was hot. The pool is open from 7am-11pm and pool towels are by the pool.
I would highly recommend this hotel and found it to be great value. less
