I was desperate for quiet and seclusion. Shutters Hotel advertisements give the appearance of an exclusive sanctuary...Far From It!....Our rooms were tastefully appointed, however our view was that of a very busy and noisy public beach parking lot. Lots of cars and SUVs frantically circling for a spot on a busy weekend complete with booming car stereos, car alarms, and intermittant horn honking..Rather unsavory types loitered nearby: visible homeless population and immigrant types. Also, the noise level is unbelievable with an endless diesel truck derby with much spewing of exhaust not far from our balcony/windows...When I called to Front Desk, I was informed that the vehicles were for "vendor deliveries" The city is literally at the beach too. So much for my escape.
There are several hotels in the area that are not as close to the beach, but are above the din...
