Other than the location and the helpful General Manager, Claudio, there is not much positive one can site. The couch in the Junior Suite was not a pull-out bed as advertised (house keeping insisted it was until they came up and saw it was not); three of the four elevators were not operable in mid-day forcing guests to walk down many flights in the disgusting stairwell; no blankets on bed, only sheets; no $20 auto valet, as advertised (only self park at $30); telephone had no cord (it was completely dead)-probably a good thing after hearing about the rapacious telephone fees assessed another guest; the $20 a day fee for beach towel and chairs at beach only cover 2 chairs-additional chairs over two are assessed a $15 fee.
And, finally, do not attempt to settle up before checking out to beat the huge lines being "served' by three clerks. You can only pay up as you check out.
Too many other choices to ever consider this place.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Steeped in pop culture history; Deauville Beach Resort is not only a present day getaway favorite, it is also historically an all-star Hollywood destination. Its most historic moment came in 1964 when Ed Sullivan brought his celebrated "Really Big Show" to the hotel's Napoleon Ballroom featuring what was to become one of the biggest music groups in history --The Beatles. Deauville Beach Resort's history of glitz and glamour has been long in the making before the memorable 1964 presence of The Beatles. The hotel was a favorite of the 1950's and 60's stars such as Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr., Dean Martin, Joey Bishop and Tony Bennett, to just name a few. They were attracted to the Deauville for both: professional and personal reasons. Holding packed-house performances at the famed Napoleon Ballroom and at the same time enjoying one of America's finest beach destinations. In 1957, the Deauville Beach Resort was reconstructed following the MiMo architecture aesthetics. It received the "Hotel of the Year" award and gave rise to the jewel it is today. Its doors reopened to a fully booked season of glamour, which set forth the coming of a new era for the Deauville. One of the jet-setting events at the hotel and Miami Beach's history was the creation of the "Cavalcade of Stars" show in 1959. Created by hotelier Morris Lansburg, guests from various neighboring hotels were transported to the Deauville for an unforgettable evening of all-star entertainment. Some of the world's most loved stars performed in the Napoleon Ballroom during these so called "rolling parties." Stars featured in the lineup included Red Buttons, Lonesome George Gobel, Judy Garland, Louis Armstrong, Sophie Tucker, The Ritz Brothers, Connie Francis and Tony Bennett. ... more less
