We stayed 1 night as we were heading from Miami to New Orleans. Our travel agent in Sydney Australia suggested this place. If I had known, I would have asked to stay at least a few more nights so we could relax and walk along the beautiful beach despite the cold weather. Loved the fact that we got Free Parking after 99% of other USA Hotels charging an expensive daily rate. Hotel Foyer wasn't as warm as other Hotels, it felt very commercial almost like a Medical Centre, however we weren't too fussed. Window in the room was large enough for us to have nice sun set views. Room was nice and large which is very comfortable. Having the choice of soft or firm pillow in our own room was a good surprise. Pool looked fantastic as we checked out and left. We weren't aware that we had to pay for a Gate Entry to this area as we hadn't changed any USD cash since we landed in LA on 23 December 2012, as we were having our month holiday in USA and had been using credit cards everywhere we went.
