“A lovely experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2013

Stayed here for four nights with family. We had two suites with an interconnecting door which was a perfect layout. We were suprised at how much we had in our suite - full fridge, dishwasher, washer/dryer , coffee machine and two electric rings. The suites were very clean and the beds really comfortable. The balcony had a spectacular view of the waterway. Loved the hotel pool which caught the sun all day. And what an ideal location. Just a couple of blocks to the beach, restaurants etc. Don't think you can do much better than this hotel. Only downside was limited parking outside .

Make sure you talk to the Front Desk at the time of checkin regarding what you are looking for in a room. They will give you the best possible room for your stay. Whether you need a bigger room or a higher floor or a better view or all of it, ask them.

Room Tip: Tell the Front Desk what you prefer in terms of floor, view, room size etc

Was in town for a business meeting and stayed here and a room facing the intercoastal waterway. Room was well appointed and roomy and I enjoyed the waterway view. Had a couple of cocktails and enjoyed the nightcap out by the waterway that felt a little like Venice. The service was good (although the vending machine on my floor was not working...no biggy just a little inconvenient) Parking was a little scattered....only valet available and during busy times had to wait for a bit. Overall this is a nice preoperty and I'd stay again.

Room Tip: Use the metered parking

Debbie Taylor and Jessica Walcott from this property were very helpful during the reservation and actual meeting phase of this trip. It was a pleasure to work with both of them. My colleagues and I were very pleased with your facility as well as your hospitality. They were there to assist with anything we needed printed out, additional supplies and just customer service all around.

Kirby, which I believe is over the restaurant was very helpful. He made sure catering was brougt in on time and that drink service was always on time. My staff also enjoyed the hand crafted drinks that the bar had to offer and Robert was great! Very knowledgeable of the area and recommended we eat a great sushi restaurant, Tokyo Blue.

As you can see everyone at the hotel is very friendly....I have all their names. I checked out at 5am and received this same level of service from the lady at the front desk at that time of morning. I'll be going back with my Husband as well as planning future department meetings there.

By the way, the meeting space has a great window view of the inter-coastal. Great scenery during an all day meeting.

My husband and I stayed while on a business trip. First of all, we were greeted by friendly staff and a beautiful smell. Not sure how or what it is, but the fragrance is amazing. The front desk clerk upgraded us to intercostal view with ease. We were welcomed in our room by music playing on the radio. We didn't feel as though we were in a hotel. I can't explain how wonderful this place is.

The balcony and room was huge. We sat on the balcony and watched boats go by....so relaxing. We couldn't be more pleased. This sounds silly, but I think most women will agree....there is nothing more aggravating than having a hair dryer that blows a little hot air and takes triple time to dry hair! There was a decent hair dryer! First time I've ever had a working hair dryer in a hotel.

What a wonderful experience! Enjoy!

Room Tip: You can use the meters instead of paying $25 valet.

Great staff and great amenities. Definitely worthy of the 4star rating, unlike other "4star" hotels.

Tips:
- Upgrade to the intercostal view
- When parking, park at the meters right outside the hotel and set up the pay by phone option. That way at 8am you don't have to physically walk to the meter to put coins in. Tickets are promptly issued at 8am so be aware.
