Great staff, building under construction
The rooms we got (upgraded automatically) was lovely and faced the beach. Even after moving due to the construction right above us, we kept the upgrade and we're moved into a room with an equally exceptional view. The staff was phenomenal, especially Suzette, who made sure we were moved quickly and with grace and comped us a pair of drinks and breakfast for the move, unprompted. Cleaning staff was accommodating to our schedule and every time we were still the front desk, we were greeted with a smile.
The building is under construction, which started fairly early (8 a.m.) so that wasn't our favorite. It was a bummer because that affected the on-site sushi restaurant as well as the fitness center (both were closed for the stay). Beach chair rentals are included in the resort fee, which is great- except that the attendant on the last day came up to us several times in a two-hour frame to let us know they "close" at 5 (or that they fold up the chairs then) and wasn't very friendly about it.
Not worth the price of admission
Did not like the “hidden” resort fee. The room was small, especially the bathroom. The water pressure in the shower way too low.
The hotel is state of the art clean and artistic. Hotel staff was superb.
Clean, friendly staff
Restaurant was very expensive
Vera¡y good location
The service specially for the breakfast was very poor
The staff was unfriendly rude, and inconsiderate
EVERYTHING. I would not stay here, they are not accomodating,the staff is rude and inconsiderate. There sheets were terrible, and the room was dirty.
Average view, definitely not worth the price
The staff is friendly and accumulating. Easy access to beach front. Updated lobby and rooms. Near liquor store.
Don't worth the $200+ a night rate I paid. It looks and feels like an old Holiday Inn that was renovated. The view from the rooms of the beach is only a half view as the building is blocking the rest. The carpet was stained. The shower had mold on the grout and caulked in areas. The A/C only kicked on when it wanted to. The pool is the size of an above-ground pool. I paid the rate because the reviews and pictures looked appeasing but it turned out to be a front. Also, it is not an adult only hotel; many, many families present and being very loud and obnoxious. 2-star rating. Only stay here if you find a rate for under $100 a night. Very, very disappointed.
Modern hotel. Great ocean view and location!
This was a great place to stay. It was very nice and looked more modern than most of the hotels on the strip. Staff very friendly and helpful. Most rooms had a beautiful view of the ocean! The higher your room the better. Beds were very comfy. Room amenities: Keurig coffee maker, refrigerator, ice bucket, 4 glasses, safe, hair dryer, shampoo/conditioner/bath gel dispenser in shower, iron/board, mirrors on the closet doors, 2 bottles of water daily They also offered 2 welcome drinks from the bar upon arrival, free beach towels and 2 free beach chairs daily. Location: The location of this hotel was good for us. It is located at the corner of A1A and Sunrise Blvd. The beach was right across the street and this section of the beach wasn't as crowded. We did not need to rent a car. There was plenty of things within a block surrounding the hotel. There was a Thai sushi place, 24hr pizza place, Mediterranean/Vegan spot, deli/sandwich shop, ice cream, popcorn, Subway, 7 Eleven. There were also several souvenir shops, a pub and a couple of other small restaurants. We rented a scooter from Fun Rentals right behind the hotel so we could explore a little further. Great transportation without paying for valet parking. We also used the beach shuttle ($3/person). Other transportation options include Trolley ($1/ride), City bus (bus stop right out front), cab, Uber, bike rentals. The nightlife is about a mile south of the hotel (30 min walk) on A1A. The Galleria mall was about 1/2 mile west on Sunrise blvd...not far at all. Overall this was a great place and we would stay here again.
The pool was sort of small though. I would have liked a microwave as well though. Restaurant in hotel was kind of expensive so we never ate there.
beautiful view, nice rooms
Great view, location - nice rooms. Bed was way too comfortable!
Everything was amazing and clean.
The personal are professional and very polite.
Some great and a few negatives
The woman at the front counter was extremely helpful and friendly. She immediately saw our daughter who is two and offered to have us a crib sent up immediately. Hotel restaurant server was also excellent. Gave us great service and the food was great.
Seemed a little too "uppity" for our family. It always seemed as if someone was looking for a tip. My husband went down to get a luggage cart to take our bags downstairs and the guy wouldn't let him have the cart. Said it was a "liability". I've been to a lot of hotels and always used my own luggage cart. It's not a liability for heavens sake. It just means someone won't get a tip. Also the bed was not very comfortable but that's just a personal opinion. It could be very comfortable to someone else.
Very comfortable bed. Rooms are nice. Location to beach is great.
Parking cost is $30/night. You can hear every sound through the door.
