Girls weekend
Place was great. Only had a problem with key code did not work on the Strand street door. Only got in if someone was leaving and/or had to use our friends code who were also staying in the lofts.

Weekend Getaway
We had an absolutely fabulous stay in the Captains Quarters. Katie was so kind to call and confirm our reservation prior to billing to let us know of the stairs and parking requirements. Non issues for us but I really appreciated the heads up. The property was exactly as described and cleaner than most hotels so we were extremely pleased. Access to the Strand and restaurants in the area was a breeze and just what my girls needed after enduring a weekend of cheerleading competition. We would definitely stay again and recommend this property to others.
