I am so glad we booked this hotel! The beach is great and not crowded. The location is near Times Square. We had a first floor double bed suite for a couple nights. It was wonderful to walk out the door and be within steps of the beach! I only wish the bedroom had room for king size beds. We also spent several nights in a king mini suite on the second floor. Not as convenient as the first floor, but still really nice. Rooms are clean and have full size fridges. Staff was very helpful. They provide towels for the beach. They are a little small, but are much better than dragging your own with you. I would definitely come back...can't wait!
