Greeted warmly by Valet, and check in was smooth, with a bonus welcome champagne for me and my colleague. Reception gave me a partial ocean view, an upgrade to what i had reserved and it was very much appreciated as a nice gesture. Rooms were very comfortable, beds really nice and bathrooms a must see with the glass shower overlooking room! Dont worry, theres an automatic privacy screen at the flip of a switch! Location was superb across from beach and i took advantage of an early morning run on the beach path. Shopping right behind the hotel, everything you can possibly need. Only complaint was being woken up at 3am by an obviously disturbed man on the street, yelling and rambling on for what seemed an eternity ( realistically, probably 30 mins of cursing, screaming, etc.) most definitely woke anyone staying in the front rooms. Homelessness is certainly not swept off the streets here as in other parts of the country, and reminds us of this major problem in the US. But I digress..... The Shore Hotel was great, Definitely will return.
