I would stay again at the Hotel Blue. Great for the price. The people at the desk were extremely helpful. They have a shuttle available, which made it nice for us since we didn't have a car at first. The free breakfast was wonderful...waffles, eggs, cereal, danish, etc. and not crowded at all. But the best part was free juices and coffee all day long. The room was okay- the flat screen tv was really nice. The decor was not great,-we were missing a desk- and the rug was worn, but the beds were WONDERFUL! and the hotel has free wireless internet, as well as 2 computers in the lobby with a printer- great for printing boarding passes or other items. The hallways were outside- which I preferred, since the weather was very nice. It is within walking distance of Old Town, but it is quite a walk for an elder like me, so we took the shuttle, and returned via cab- although the shuttle was willing to come back for us if we called. It is not far from downtown- if you like walking- and a short ride in a cab. There is a pool and a fitness room, but we didn't use either- they looked fine, but small. I didn't notice any hotel-run activities, there are no shops within the hotel, but there are many brochures that list sights and activities in the area. Our son arrived a day after we checked in, and he had his car. The hotel parking is within a locked lot which is opened only with your room key. We thought this was a great security measure.
