Unlike many of its Downtown competitors, this is a modern hotel, though there is an “historic wing” with an original brick wall from the 1830s, and all the rooms are furnished with a nod to the city’s past. Flatscreen TVs and iPod docks are paired with wooden four-posters and antique-like furnishings. But the main draw of this hotel is the sensational location overlooking the harbor and Waterfront Park, with an enticing rooftop terrace and lounge chairs to enjoy the complimentary cocktail hour (wine and cookies). Breakfast is delivered to the room. Complimentary “Skyline Tours” are offered on Wednesdays and Saturdays on the rooftop terrace.
