Fodor's Review

This historic hotel is in an ideal location for shoppers and sun worshippers; it faces the Front Street pedestrian mall, and to the rear are the boardwalk and a long stretch of Great Bay Beach. Rooms, all of which have balconies, were redecorated in a clean Euro-modern style, but they're starting to show wear. The four spacious junior suites have separate seating areas and two flat-screen TVs and are worth the extra cost. Rooms facing the street can be noisy. The hotel has a first-rate restaurant. It's often no more expensive to get a package that includes breakfast, and the buffet is terrific. Be careful when booking through a third-party site, as there have been many reports of reservation confusions.

Superb hotel! See note for car renters.

Fourth floor ocean view is the way to go- superb views of the bay, cruise ships and sunsets. Very clean rooms and great ambience at the hotel's bar and restaurant. Note if you are renting a car, the east end of Front Street which includes the hotel entrance is closed to vehicle traffic during certain times of the day. Traffic from the airport and in Phillipsburg was INSANE, and finding a parking spot was high adventure! I recommend the free lot

along the back lagoon by the University. The lot by the government building, which is about 2 blocks closer to the hotel, is not free Monday thru Saturday, cost us $15 overnight. Advise you have walking shoes and rolling luggage for walking to and from the hotel if you are in a rental car because of this road closure / parking situation. Once you're there, you'll find superb shopping, restaurants and beach activities right within walking distance from the hotel.
