We have stayed here many times and always really have a great time. We went with our family to enjoy the fireworks on the beach and the boat races. What brings us back is the extreme friendliness of the staff. They go out of their way to make your stay very comfortable. Even the guys doing maintenance would stop and talk to us and say hello each morning. The manager makes himself very visible and is constantly monitoring the hotel and facilities. What stands out about The Helmsley is the fact you see the same employees year after year and they seem to really enjoy their jobs. Yes, the hotel is dated but very clean and well maintained. I love to stay at a hotel and return and love it just as much as the first time, The Helmsley does this every time!
