Far-reaching views from the upper-floor suites are a plus at this good-value, centrally located, independent hotel. Most units are one-bedroom suites with full balconies and up-to-date earth-tone color schemes; the upper-floor two-bedroom suites are huge and have private decks. Lower-floor standard rooms are small and plain but clean and well priced. The lobby is looking a little dated, but the adjacent Clive's Classic Lounge is an au courant spot for cocktails;
higher up, the vistas from the 18th-floor restaurant/lounge extend across the harbor. The friendly staff will look after you, and you can choose from a full range of in-room spa services. When booking, ask for a room with the best view; within each price category, better views don't cost more.
