This was my husband and my first time staying at the Empress. At check in we were greeted by Doug who was wonderful. We had requested an ocean view room knowing that some of the rooms that overlooked the pool could be noisy from the bar downstairs. We were thrilled that the noise wasn't an issue as I had originally thought. Our room was nice, simple and spacious - every room has a balcony! The bar downstairs is amazing - you must try the "booze buckets" During our stay we became friendly with the front desk, Kristin and Josh are so nice; very hospitable and aim to please. Don was great with recommending places to go for dinner, he was very knowledgeable about the area. All in all we had a fabulous time (despite the periods of rain) Some minor woes but not deal breakers... the elevator is slow, we wound up using the stairs which are much quicker. Wifi did not work/very week in our room. The rooms could use some more overhead light, there are lots of lamps in the room. Oh and a bathroom shelf could be fun too. WE WILL BE BACK! =) Thanks Empress~
