Just returned from The Helmsley Sandcastle.Could not fault it at all, we stayed in a upper Gulf front room and the views were amazing.Its seems that from some of the reviews it must depend in what room type you stay in.The receptionist was very friendly when we arrived and the area smelt of fresh flowers.The rooms were very clean,carpeted floor with free air con,safe etc etc.The rooms were cleaned daily, beds made, towels changed, just perfect.A courtesy car is available into St Armands Circle and downtown is just a taxi ride away.We loved the nightlife in the Main Street area, a bit more lively than St Armands Circle.The only critism we had was the hotel entertainment was a bit low key.
