We booked this hotel specifically because it has a pool and hot tub. I called ahead to ensure these amenities were open (due to Covid) and was assured they were. I went to use the hot tub which was colder than the pool, and when I went to the front desk to notify them the suggested it was because no one had used it all day. I had to book a time to use the hot tub and pool due to Covid so you would think they would make sure everything was turned on beforehand. Our room was stifling hot. I tried turning down the heat, which did not work and We woke up in the middle of the night feeling like we were in a sauna. I called the front desk and they sent someone up, but they could not identify the problem. As a solution we had to sleep with the window open and a fan put in front of the window to circulate cool air. Staff were great, but in my opinion things like this shouldn’t be happening without some sort of better solution and guest services.

Very nice hotel. Bar and Seaport Social restaurant are great. Parking is $20 a day, even for paying guests which is ridiculous. No guest services book in the room though so good luck with that.. overall a pretty decent stay. Would stay again
