Spacious with good location and view but moldy
The hotel is spacious with great bones. The view was great and the pool facility nice. But there were moldy shower curtains and moldy spots in the carpet. They clearly have a leak somewhere and just don't fix it. The fridge didn't work and the wifi didn't work. The wifi was very frustrating because we expected to be able to work remotely from the rooms one of the days, but we couldn't even get our phones connected, let alone our computer. Wifi does work in the lobby. The location is perfect, just blocks from the waterfront, with the free museum right next door. For a 3 bedroom, for this price and location, it's fine, just don't count on the wifi, and expect mold. It's too bad because it clearly has the potential for a spectacular hotel.

Awesome place to stay
The Room and location is good. Convenient place to stay, near to shopping Complex and attractive place. The room view is not so good due to facing parking space.
