Fodor's Review

This former budget motel has transformed into a contemporary hotel-motel with updated furnishings, a stylish restaurant and lounge, and a fitness center. All rooms are outfitted with pillow-top beds and interesting wall art; suites offer wet bars and some have marble bathrooms with whirlpool tubs. The on-site restaurant, the Glass Door, has fourth-floor harbor views, a stellar weekend brunch, and late night happy hours. Complimentary shuttle service is available to the airport, cruise terminal, and convention center.
