My family of five (3 kids 8 and under) stayed in the Premier Studio room facing Collins Avenue. No balcony for our suite though some other do have them. The one king bed and pullout L shaped couch were a perfect fit for us. The room was up to date, clean and all the stainless steel kitchen appliances were like new. Full size fridge with water/ice cube tap and filter was a bonus! Dishwasher, Microwave, Stove/Oven and Toaster all provided. Combo Washer and dryer in the closet was convenient after the long beach days. About a 50" Flat Screen TV with Direct TV. In room Wi-Fi also provided. The staff from top to bottom was very friendly and accommodating, always offering help. Hotel in general was a nice quiet place to stay. There is a little bar area in the lobby and a convenience store near the back for various needs. They will write you a voucher every day for 2 beach loungers and umbrella on the beach so rental is not needed. Also for beach towels. Access to the beach is very close, right across the street, so a 2 minute walk. No parking at the hotel, just a few spots in front for 15 Minute loading and unloading. I parked at the City Garage overnight. The entrance to this parking structure is at the corner of 42nd Street and Sheridan Avenue (about a 5-10 minute walk to the hotel) nice little walk over the bridge, no big deal. The parking here is affordable. Maximum $8 a day and it is open 24-7. I only needed our vehicle every other day or so this was not an inconvenience for us. My only cons about this place are no broom provided so bring one if you want to sweep up the sand in your room since the whole place is tile floor. Sand gets everywhere! And the outside windows could use a wash, they were dirty and hard to see through. Otherwise, an awesome place to stay and I would highly recommend it!…
Newly renovated (completely) clean, safe, full size kitchen appliances, mini washer/dye, free lounge chairs and umbrella at the beach, beach one block away, great value, Can open Murphy bed and couch at same time.ly)
Room was roomy and had washer/dryer. Pictures on website are accurate. Murphy bed does not take up the whole room. Staff friendly and efficient. 1 block from beach. Free beach chairs, umbrellas, towels. Close to restaurants (including kosher). Only 5 stories high.
Stayed here over the weekend for a friend's birthday. The room fit 5 comfortably with a full kitchen and washer and dryer. The decor is up to date. The lobby offered a nice white art deco feel. The staff including the housekeeper were nice. The only thing I would suggest is to actually provide dish detergent to go along with the sponge they provide. Also the room temperatures were fine and could be adjusted, but the hallways were warm and stuffy which was odd. Close to fontainbleau and trolley accessible. No parking though unless you can find it on the beach or pay for the overpriced garage 2 blocks down the street.
Chose this hotel based on location and price, and I will be back. The room exceeded my expectations with a full kitchen. The front desk staff was extremely accommodating and helpful. The front patio and lobby were kept clean and tidy.
