What are the most common guest issues? Buyer Beware!
We find that very few people are disappointed with their guest experience at the Harborside Inn. However, most disappointment stems from consumers' unfulfilled expectations because they fail to carefully examine our entire website in detail before they arrive. So, please review the website and call us with any questions. Please choose a different hotel if the following issues will cause you to be disappointed:
*View from some rooms not scenic - Atrium rooms offer interior views of our 8 story skylit space which allows them to be very quiet due to the lack of exposure to the city noises listed below.
* City Noise - occasional sirens, delivery/trash removal trucks - if you're a light sleeper, we recommend you stay outside the cityGENERAL
