Re: Hotel in/near Charlotte Amalie
We have stayed at both the Galleon and 1829. The Galleons stairs would prevent me from going back. The room we had at the 1829 was fantastically charming. We walked to the ferry dock the next AM (15 minutes). Don't walk up the hill from the 1829 at nighttime (advice from the receptionist). Make sure you do explore up the hill during the day to see the pirate / rum museum.
Both have decent pools to cool off in. Waterfront eateries are close by but the shopping pretty much closes down once the sheeple are herded back to their floating pens.
