We loved this place. Yes it's a little expensive but it was worth every cent. We were in the middle of everything but could still escape the cross in our awesome Island view room with jacuzzi tub on balcony. We were close enough to walk to bar island and all attractions were near by. Room service was awesome as was...

Four nights in the Boathouse at the Harborside hotel was not enough! In your room, you feel as if you are floating atop the harbor. The boathouse is separate from the main property and comprises four rooms. The entrance is fenced off, providing a feeling of seclusion from the hustle and bustle of West and Main streets. The interior décor...
