Flew into West Palm Beach for a five night stay in mid-March for a baseball tournament about 5 miles down the road. Could've walked it from the airport, but waited and took the shuttle. I just missed the first shuttle I saw but only had to wait about 10 min. as it is probably only 1/4 mi. from pick up to the front of hotel.
I dropped off my stuff and walked next door to rent a car; most of the major rental companies are off the airport and right next to this hotel. That was convenient, too...and once I had the car, the parking at the hotel was free and seemed plenty safe, as the hotel is on a heavily travelled road.
Lobby are large and spacious, with bar and lounge in a nice open air atrium. The check in area was kind of cramped but the clerks were very nice and attentive; when I asked for a quiet room they placed me on the 9th floor near the end of a hallway away from the elevators, and for the most part it was quiet. Had one incident with noisy (REALLY noisy) kids a few doors down but one call to the desk fixed the problem.
The hotel has undergone some renovations over the past few years (this according to their website), but I am pretty sure they hadn't yet gotten around to the carpeting in this part of the building. I made it out to the pool area and sauna room a couple times; the pool is small but decent, water was heated; the sauna was large and they kept the temperature cranked up. The only downside to the pool area is that you have to make a long walk through the lobby area to get out to the pool.
Didn't use room service; the room was made up each afternoon while I was out and the maids did a good job keeping the room very clean.
The bed was VERY comfortable. Wish I had more time to sleep, but what time I was in bed I slept very well.
I saved a lot of money by booking this through Hotwire, and the location turned out to be very good for both the tournament and my sidetrips into West Palm Beach for food and shopping.
Overall, this was a very good deal...
