This is an outstandingly beautiful hotel, one of the best I've ever stayed in, and certainly the best in the US. It's incredibly picturesque, old (by US standards) and in a wonderful location along side the beach. I was upgraded to a suite in the Ocean Towers, a short walk from the main hotel. Its much more modern and the view certainly made it for me, but there were still a couple of issues with the room. It's February, with strong winds. The windows and glass doors don't fit properly so not only is the wind noticeable it's cold in the room. The heating system is noisy and not very effective. It's an unfortunate downside of staying here in winter I guess.
The free internet for as more devices than I was carrying, and the free bottles of water in the room replenished every day is a very nice touch. The bed is incredibly comfortable and up there with the best hotels.
It's a bit of a captive audience on site. The coffee shops and bars are a little expensive which is where you could rack up some unexpected costs.
I would consider coming back again, but would look to stay in the hotel itself rather than in the Ocean Tower.
