Not what was expected
Rooom was large. Recption staff nice.
Thought it qwas close to the water, port. Nothing within walking distance. Air condtioner+heater was very loud. Did not have a way to have the fan stay on. So all night it made a recyling sound. Thump when it came on and thump when it went off. Hard to sleep because the cycle on and off was vey short. Bathroom very small but the room was very large.
