          We have a reservation that includes breakfast. I can find nothing on the hotel site (or here) about what's on offer for breakfast (hot or cold), where it is offered, when it is available, whether a cash breakfast is preferable, etc. Does anyone know and can provide me with enough info to decide whether to change our reservation?

          I agree with Ryan . . . ask for rooms facing the water but also need to be on upper floors for the best view.
