I thought with the many good reviews I read on this Hotel that I was going to have a pleasant stay. However, I don't know what type of Hotels the other reviewers stayed in but I have stayed in way better. Actually all the other Hotels I've stayed in were far better, and I've stayed in many different Hotels. At first everything seemed like it was going to be great because the valet was friendly and check in was fast. The lobby looked nicely decorated and clean but that's where the "luxury Hotel" experience ended. I was taken to my room and immediately after entering it I felt uncomfortable. My children went right for the view of the ocean which was okay if you could block out the image of ugly roof tops directly in front of the ocean view. The room was smaller than it seemed from the photo's I seen online (usually it's the other way around since I always stay in suites). The room may have looked nice when it first was decorated but had a lot of wear and tear everywhere I looked. My room was non-smoking yet there were burn holes on the window seat and the remote to the t.v. as if someone used it as an ashtray and left their cigarette laying on it. The remote did not work and I had to control the t.v. manually. The bed had a large brown stain on the box springs which could be seen since there was no bed skirting. The sink had no center plug and the water filled up and drained slowly and obvious clog that was never fixed. The carpet was very dirty and threads were pulled up in areas. The walls were dirty, and the sink had black spots on the backsplash. Even the phone in the room was very dated looked like the ones inside a Motel room during the 1990's. This Hotel was not worth the price since the quality of the rooms were similar to those of a cheap Motel. I did not stay the night after seeing all the dirt and grime there was no way I could feel comfortable in that Hotel the standards and quality were very low for what is suppose to be a luxury Hotel. The only signs of luxury were outside and in the lobby.
