We stay at this hotel very often. It has a good location. However, it is not close to the beach if that is what you are looking for. There are many restaurants and shopping near by. The only reason I do not rated "Excellent" is because the pool only gets sun from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm and from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm. The hotel across the street blocks it the rest of the time. The hotel staff is very cordial and are always trying to help. It is expensive to valet park your vehicle approx. $38.00 a day. I have valet parked a vehicle once there and will not do it again. It is not so much because of the cost but the poor attitude of some of their attendants. Note that these are the only staff members who we avoid at all cost. There is parking if you don't mind walking two blocks.
