One of the greatest hotels I've ever stayed in
SallyG - Peoria, Illinois

This is truly a grand, grand hotel. And the employees are so very well trained and accommodating. We spent two nights at this hotel as part of a tour/pre-cruise and this was, by far, our favorite. Every room had an umbrella which was cleverly displayed as sort of "wall art". The amenities were luxurious and everything was squeaky, squeaky clean. This was the hotel we "de-jet lagged in" and it was a breeze. Perfectly situated on the water and within walking distance of many restaurants. Oh, just writing about it makes me want to go back.
