We arrived early (about 10:45 a.m.) and asked if we could be accommodated. The desk person said she could put us in a handicap-friendly room (#3033) and we agreed. We've stayed at this property before and it was up to its usual high standards, however I had not stayed in the south wing before. The registration clerk told us that there would normally be an early checkin charge for arrivals before 11 but she would waive it. The property is right on the ocean and is very pleasing to the eye. WiFi is not free in the room but is so in the lobby, which is large and can accommodate dozens in comfortable sofas and chairs. The room location was great, no elevators, outstanding bed, and the pool view was superb with both day and night stunning views. I have two criticisms of the property: The parking fees are absurdly high and the self parking garage has narrow stalls that make it difficult to negotiate. The other issue has to do with the shower in the room. The shower floor is smooth tile and very slippery and contained no mat. I held my breath each time I showered in hopes I would not fall. There was no bench in the shower nor was it easily wheelchair accessible.
