The hotel is really quite beautiful and has been impeccably restored to its former grandeur. There's an interesting history and great views. We found good restaurants and shops nearby that are walking distance. From the moment we arrived, we felt welcome. The front desk staff immediately found us an accessible room with a lovely view and really seemed to care and were quite helpful. Our room was very large and clean and the walk in shower was convenient. We especially enjoyed the huge pool with massaging waterfall that was so relaxing. Staff at the pool went out of their way to bring us specially requested items and the food was terrific. This hotel was the highlight of our two weeks in Florida. I would have loved to stay longer.
