great location, near water and many good restaurants> Also walking distance to town. Cosy and quiet rooms. A fresh new building, nicely appointed. Not part of a large chain, locally owned and managed.

The harbor location was a 5+ but it went downhill from there. The room was not ready for a mid week check in time. Nor was the promised call when ready ever made. The room was spotless but very small. The fireplace's allure was certainly lessened in the tiny room. By twisting our necks, the harbor was visible. The lobby...

Super location. It was the week after Labor Day so the price was more than fair. On the waterfront. Great for walking. Navy and white decor; spacious room with two beds. Staff was kind and professional.

We booked a few months ahead for a wedding, also at the hotel, but all the regular rooms were taken, so we opted for one of their suites. Upon arrival at 2am we were delightfully surprised, although now understanding why it was upwards of 600/night. The desk clerk was about to give us our card room key and then realized...

This is a classy hotel. It's on the waterfront. It's in a very high demand area. so the prices are very, very high. We stayed at this hotel for a wedding and got a wedding rate of $209 + tax over labor Day weekend. Without the wedding rate, we definitely would not have stayed there. there is NO coffee in...

Just the perfect location to view the harbor & boats. Very accommodating for business needs, internet access, scanning and printing. Charming lobby with easy access to the upper floors. Room was clean and spacious with two separate bedrooms plus good size bathroom made our stay comfortable. All restaurants,coffee shops, boutique retail shops, bike rentals were within walking distance.

We needed a place to stay for just a night between Providence and Fall River at the last minute and this was perfect. Room was large very clean and quiet. Absolutely no amenities but a coffee maker and fridge. Would have been nice to have coffee in the lobby. The hotel is right on Bristol Harbor so there are some...

We booked this hotel as a last minute one-night getaway and were thrilled. The photos on this site don't do it justice since the renovation. Our lovely room was comparable to the Hyatt in Newport, where we have also stayed. We were told it did not have a water view when it actually did! (Room 204) Nice surprise. There was...

Stayed here while attending a wedding in the area. Check in was fast and nice. Rooms are newly Renovated...very clean and comfortable. The bed was a bit hard but not uncomfortable. We lost power because of a passing storm but everything was up and running within 20 mins. The room didn't have an iron so we called to the front...
