What an amazing experience! From the moment we checked in, we were made to feel like long lost friends that just made our way home! Hunter at the front desk, welcomed us warmly. Our room was wonderful! We had a corner suite and it had a lovely view of the ocean. The only little complaint that we had, was we would have loved to sleep with our patio door opened (we were on the 2nd floor), but the noise from the street (horns/late night party'ers/barking dogs, etc.) were VERY loud and kept us up, a good portion of the night. When we tried to turn the A/C on, holy cow! The A/C was like something out of a Boeing Wind Tunnel! My poor husband was sleeping closest to the vent (there is only one vent for the 800 square foot room) and he was nearly blown out of bed!
It sounds like I'm complaining and I'm really not.. .Just pointing out what I wished could have been improved on.
Food: Wonderful! Yes, it's expensive ($9 for french fries!)... But the service was amazing! The waitstaff made us feel like we were guests in their home and were highly attentive without being 'in our face'.
I really loved the fact that this hotel gives Kiehl's bath products to their guests... Very nice touch! Also, the in-room coffee was fantastic! Would have purchased some to take home, if it had been available!
I really cannot say enough GREAT things about our weekend at the Oceana. From Hunter at the front desk, to the valet team, to the wait staff, we were always blown away by their kindness and non-uppity attitudes. Yes, this is a high end hotel, but, somehow, they manage to pull off being high end w/o the high end snooty attitude! Bravo to Hotel Oceana!!
