If you are an Art Deco fan this hotel is just the place to stay. They managed to preserve several of the original features, it's perfectly located in the mids of the Art Deco district, close to the beach and restaurants. The pool on the top floor is a nice touch: not to big, but nice for a swim in the afternoon and brilliant to watch the sunset over the ocean.
The room we had was on the 4th floor (highest where they have accommodation). Simple but nice. The bathroom was on the small side, but it did have nice Art Deco features. Two things bothered me: the vanity mirror in the bathroom was dirty (stained by water drops?) on the day we arrived and it was not cleaned throughout our 5-day stay; we like to take an afternoon nap and on two occasions it was impossible because of the rather loud chatter of the cleaning personnel.
What distinguished this place for me was the friendliness of the front desk staff and waiters - so incredibly helpful and kind. Loved the place and would warmly recommend it.
