We stayed in the Old Port room.
Another view of the lounge.
They told us it would be open around July 1, so recommend you reach out to them. They were in full construction mode when we were there.

We recently stayed at The Danforth and one of the reasons we did was that you could see each room on line and read a description. Our room matched exactly what we had read. The website is very accurate and the hotel staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Enjoy your stay!
