Friendliness and excellent service made for a wonderful stay at this hotel. Breakfast exceeded my expectations. Staff were always pleasant and accommodating. Room service was excellent. Even though on the website it indicates that the latest check in is 11pm, I was made to feel most welcome when I arrived 12:30am. I will definitely return to this hotel.

Comfortable rooms. Staff is friendly. Amenities could work better though. The breakfast room is large and has a wide choice. Location is good, in front of the south beach and about 10 mins by taxi to the convention center. The is being upgraded so i guess it should be better soon. Higher floor rooms have a nice view of the... More

Overall excellent service and a delicious breakfast made this stay worth while. The only thing that left a bitter sweet taste is that we were asked to pay for the service to take our luggage up to our room.

Everything was what we expected. Great service, welcoming staff. We loved the breakfast and the kiddies breakfast section. A bar fridge would be nice in the room so this is something they can invest in.
