For us, staying here is like going to see family. We have gone there for years and the reasons we return are numerous, but one reason stands out, the staff. Their smiling faces, willingness to accommodate our every needs and the way we are treated is why we are repeat offenders! Because we stay on the executive level and have had access to the lounge all of these years, it has resulted in friendships that will truly last a lifetime. In fact, because of the friends we have met at the private lounge over the years, we return time and time again to meet up with just those friends who have become like family to us and who we keep in touch with throughout the years.
But, there is a change in the winds my friends. The new owners have decided to close the lounge on weekends. We have such limited time with these friends we have made that taking away that privacy at the lounge 2 nights of our vacation kind of stinkst. It is not just the friends, it is Anne and now Vickie who is new up there, there is just not enough words to express how wonderful they are and how lucky the DoubleTree is that they work up there. They are real in their love of what they do and the enjoyment they share in visiting with all of the returning guests.
I know this may seem petty, and we could go somewhere else to visit with our friends, but it is the quietness, privacy and no children in an environment not seen at most hotels that is truly the treasure of the executive lounge at DoubleTree Oceanfront in Cocoa Beach. Also, there is nothing like being able to grab a cup of coffee steps from your room and return for more fun with the staff over breakfast. It is all of those little things that make a great stay for hard working people who look forward to vacation at the hotel..
We have a trip planned to celebrate and meet up with our many friends, so it was a little disheartening to learn how the hotel is starting to change. Somehow being handed vouchers for the main restaurant is just not going to be the same. If management is trying to save a few bucks, the conveniences guests look for is not the way to save money.
Please note that since you have to pick a date of travel on trip adviser and we have not returned yet but will shortly, we put Feb, 2013.
