This was a wonderful place to stay while in Pensacola. The amenities are great and it was great to have it right on the beach. The staff were courteous and helpful and it definitely felt like a first class experience. The room I chose had a balcony facing the ocean and this was a definite plus. I ate at the hotel restaurant and ordered a sushi platter. It was very good sushi thought predictably fairly expensive. The only negative I experienced was my first room at the far end of the hotel that took forever to heat the water. I was relocated to a room more centrally located and the water temperature was great. Because it is an older hotel the water heaters cannot really handle delivering hot water on demand the remote rooms. So choose your room wisely. Overall though it was a great place to stay.
