                  Very limited parking. One parking spot had room for about 12 cars however once you enter you find that all spots are filled you then have to back out onto the main street in order to turn around. Dangerous. Dorchester Hotel informed that there was a lounge in the facility, which I needed to host a large group of friends. The Hotel did not inform me however that the lounge was not open. I had just assumed that if the Hotel had a lounge, the lounge would be functioning, this was at 1:00 pm. On a Saturday afternoon.

                  Close location to harbors.

                  I loved the view from my room of the harbor. It was quite beautiful.

                  Nothing...it was perfect.
