We came here with our family and when we arrived there was very loud drilling and construction right next door. The hotel was very accommodating. We stayed the night and used the pool. The rooms were beautiful and clean. The pool was small but fun for the kids with the waterfall. Above all, the staff and customer service at this place is top notch. They moved us to their sister hotel El Taj (review to follow) when we expressed disappointment in the noise factor during the day. Would come back for sure when the construction is finished next door! (We found out that they are not taking more reservations there until it is complete.) Great location- short block walk to the beach and right near fifth ave.
