This is my second stay here. The first time, although offered an upgrade, it was raining the last 2 days, so decided to stay in the partial ocean view room. This time I did choose to upgrade to an oceanfront room. Am I glad I did! Were on the 4th floor - high enough to avoid the noise but close enough to hear/see the entertainment below on the patio. I left the curtains open at night and, without lifting my head from the pillow, woke to see the ocean, palm trees and sky. Amazing! The room was perfection! Clean and comfortable. Used the lanai for morning coffee and evening for a glass of wine in the most perfect setting possible. Check-in was a breeze; as was check-out. Everyone was friendly, cheerful and helpful. Loved being only a few floors above Duke's. I highly recommend the breakfast buffet. And you must try the Hula Pie at least once! The location is perfect for going to the beach or shopping, since both are right there! The only caution is that the beach chairs (the blue umbrellas) are not free. You must pay for them. But you can take your towel and sit on the beach in front of them. Or relax on the patio beach chairs. The pool is beautiful! I'll go back in a minute and I highly recommend this hotel.
