Holland House is a decent location near the boardwalk restauants. But the Holland House's own patio/restaurant is probably the prettiest. The service is great,and so are the martinis! The front desk staff were very helpful and made our ferry reservations for Saba island and taxi arrangements.
Our room faced the street (rather seedy view, honestly)... so the beach view rooms might be more desirable. We just kept the curtains closed. The shops close at 5:50pm (not 6pm... 5:50) and after dark, these streets are undesireable with only some shifty-looking casinos open. Stick to the boardwalk restaurants after dark.
