I have seen reviews saying that this hotel isn't convenient to anything but the airport and cruise port. That is just not true. It IS one of the few hotels that offers free pick-up from the airport and is probably the best of those that do offer that service. But you are also just a couple miles from the beach and there are easy transportation methods that are cost effective. The hotel offers free transportation to the Water Taxi stop #7. The water taxi is a lot of fun and well priced. $15 bucks you can ride it all day long going to the beaches or downtown. If you are looking for an evening out they just charge $7 for the entire evening after 7pm. The drivers give a tour of the city while transporting you from each stop. Also, the hotel is about a block from a bus stop that services the beach. For $1.50 you can hop on a route 40 bus that takes you right to the beaches. You don't have to complain about paying for a taxi to get around from this hotel. Use the services the city and hotel offer and enjoy!
The breakfast is pretty norm for a continental, though the quality of each item seemed better. Shouldn't complain, though, because very few 3 star hotels offer a free breakfast.
The hotel has a nice pool surrounded by palm trees and tropical foliage.
Rooms are quite large and beautiful. Ask for a upper level room with a downtown view. You can see the skyline beautifully and even the high-rise hotels along the ocean, though those hotels do block your view of the ocean.
