OK, this hotel is not the Marrit;s location. Mariott or Hilton but what it lacks in glitz it makes up for in its location. The Horizon View is right smack dab on Front Street in downtown Phillipsburg. You walk out the door and you are on the tourist row where shops abound and wehere you can get 2 Carib beers and Cuban cigar for 5 bucks. If you are not into the shopping scene then this hotel is not for you. The hotel faces front street on one side and the Great bay on the other. It costs more for an Ocean view but what the heck if you are on business who care where the room is. The room is clean but the bathroom could use an update. The staff is very nice and they make you feel welcome. Would I bring my wife here....hmm not sure as she goes for more upscale accomodations. The kitchen has a coffee pot so you can make your own coffee. They also will provide you with a wireless router to access the Internet. IMPORTANT: a parking places are non-existant be sure to ask Ramesh (nice guy) to give you the key to a small secured parking lot just down the alley. (You will be glad you did) The hotel offers no food but with its location places to eat are all over. If I was traveling back to SXM on business I would opt to stay at this hotel once again. No frills just a good bed and clean place to sleep. Oh yea, there is a Catholic Church next door so if singing and church bells bothers you seek elsewhere.
