I stayed at this property August 16-18 for a quick business trip to Fort Pierce from California. It was recommended by my colleague at Indian River State College, and she was absolutely spot on: the location was good for getting to the campus, and it was easily accessible from the West Palm Beach airport and to the campus. But it was also a good base from which to go to a few spots in West Palm Beach too. Because of flight delays, I got in 6 hours later than anticipated, so I'd called ahead to let the staff know; the staff person at the front desk was alert and helpful, the room was clean and comfortable, and he'd even asked about a wake-up call knowing I'd have to be on campus by 8:30 am. He also promptly handed me a cold water bottle free of charge since I'm a Marriott Rewards member.
The in-room coffee maker and coffee were essential five hours later when I had to get up. The complimentary breakfast the next morning was sufficient for my needs: from the selection that included a microwaveable spicy omelet, muffins and pastries, make-it-yourself waffle station, hard-boiled eggs, fruit, cold cereals, and bread and muffins, the hard-boiled egg and toasted muffin with cream cheese were perfect. The staff watched the coffee, hot water, and food and kept everything in adequate supply as people wandered in for breakfast. An interesting touch is that the apples were wrapped in saran-wrap to keep the edible exterior clean from others' hands as people chose their bananas or oranges.
Upon my return from the campus, when I checked with the staff at the front desk about my plans for dinner and a next-morning excursion before my flight home, they gave me a thumbs-up about the two places I had chosen based on TripAdvisor reviews but also gave me realistic expectations about how brief my stay at the Manatee Observation and Education Center might take at this time of year (see review of that separately). After I returned from my dinner at 12A Buoy (reviewed separately--it was good), I easily did check-in for my flight at their modest business center and printed out my boarding pass for the next day. And check-out the next day after breakfast was easy and efficient, too. That day, with more time, I had a waffle, and it was light and airy--quite filling, actually.
The room had the customary work station, wi-fi in the room was complimentary, the flat-screen TV and channels kept me informed about the weather and traffic, the AC worked well (essential this time of year), and the parking for my rental car was free. All of these amenities, the location, and the professionalism and courtesy of the staff make it a great choice for a business trip. Because of the shortness of the trip, I never tried out the pool or the workout facility, but both looked to be sufficient for a person's needs. If I have business again, I'd probably choose this hotel again since the price was great for what I got (even less expensive than the rental car I ended up with the section available at 11:30 pm at the airport).
