I usually stay here for work. I do lots of jobs at the Westin Diplomat about a block north of this hotel. And we get put up here when the Dip over books - which is a lot ... However, I prefer staying here... For personal reasons, if I'm staying here, I don't have a gazillion client peeps at every step... And the best part... The rooms are more spacious - and with the renovation a few years back - quite attractive. There is a small kitchenette - refrig, microwave, sink. Nice decor. All rooms have a balcony.
Yes, the lobby is weak...... However, The Tiki bar on the intracoastal is probably one of the best tikis on the intracoastal bars in SoFla. Really. (I've done the research ;) And the prices are reasonable. $5/6 for a call drink... On the water... Great sunset views.... Nice bartenders.... Skip the Westin Diplomat... Sure the Dip is grand and all... However, this place is worth a glance...More
