The hotel is only good for location. It's right across from the beach and shops are in walking distance. If you're driving and need to park, the valet is$25 and they park your car 7 blocks away. There's a parking garage around the corner that's$20 a day but it's $1 per hour I think. Very expensive I know. The rooms are super small and old and too expensive for the service they give. They smell like mildew and the shower leaves water all over the floor. You can't close the bathroom door while you're on the toilet. That's how small the bathroom is. The hotel ran out of towels for 2 days and gave us a beach towel to shower with and said that's all they had. It's hot outside and you're coming in from the beach but you have no towel to shower with. The front desk guy had the worst attitude. He kept lying saying that the towels were in the washer and that they would be done when we came back from the beach. When we came back he said that housekeeping was gone for the day and didn't check with them on the status of the towels and that the linen room was locked and they didn't have a key. I will never stay at the Colony hotel again. And also the strip is so congested and the host from the different restaurants located outside of each hotel run up to you and all you to eat there. They look like beggars. Some of them are so aggressive that they won't even let you get by. My trip would have been alot better if I had chosen a different hotel. I'll never stay with the Colony again or refer anyone to stay in that piece of crap hotel.
