I stayed here over Mardi Gras weekend as a break on a long business trip. The location is fantastic, with white sand beach across the street for as far as the eye can see. Huge gnarled old trees covered in Spanish moss survived Katrina, and line Hwy 90 on your way in and out of the property. Its clear that many old homes were destroyed nearby and a drive along the coast is filled not only with sandy shore, but with vacant lots on the other side. The property itself is a nice 6 story building, with the pool and patio in the front yard. It made for a lovely place to sit poolside, watch the waves lap the shore, and see the various Krewe truck/trailers pass on thier way east to yet another parade in the season. Rooms are, not surprisingly, a little smaller than most HIE's I have visited, but given the location, its not a hindrance. My room 214 was smaller than most, and had a small hallway entrance off the main hall. This yielded a surprising quiet room, in what I thought might be a party hotel... no such poor luck. Breakfast was very nice, huge airy room facing the ocean could not have been nicer. IHG is offering a bonus of 7500 priority club points for staying 2 days in March, I suspect as an incentive to make up for the expected spring break noise, but it turned out to simply be a nice addition to a very nice 2 day stay on a lovely beach. I will definitely return to this hotel for more leisure stays.
