The hotel's location is great -- right on the beach. It's easy to walk to the wharf, or the Boardwalk. The hotel was recently renovated and the rooms are nice, clean and have cool, modern decor.
In term of amenities, the pool was nice and warm though on the small side. They also have a small children's pool about 2.5 feet deep. Service is good throughout the hotel. Room service menu is somewhat limited but food taste and quality are great. We had a suite and the extra room was nice since we had two kids - ages 2 and 4. But there was no tub in the bathroom -- just a shower, although it did have the hand held shower head that we could use to rinse off the kids.
Overall it's a nice hotel. The prices are a bit steep -- we got a good last minute rate. I don't think it's worth $400 that they command in the summer, but for $200-$300 it's worth a visit.
