Adrian E, Recognizing our staff for their outstanding service makes us so proud of the team for providing world class service. I guess the secret is out now about Dolce Italian Award winning restaurant and our ultra retro nightclub, Rec Room. Our guests are the best and we appreciate that you choose to stay with us!

This hotel has captured the essence of Art Deco and done it well. The rooms are tastefully appointed and the restaurant is of the highest quality. Only one block from the beach it also has a citibike rental very close. It is also only a block from Lincoln street with heaps of eateries and shopping.
