Recently stayed at the hotel for a conderence, sohad no choice.
I DO NOT recommend this hotel.
Upon arrival your only parking option is valet and it's $20 per day upfront directly to the valet it can't be placed on your hotel bill. Also it's recommended you give them 30 minutes to an hour to get your car around.
The front desk workers where scattered at best. You would have a line of people and they would all be helping one person or to busy counting there tip money.
The hotel charges a daily fee if $15 on tip of your room rate for use of wifi (only good connection in limited areas), lounges at Pool & Beach, gym, etc.
The resort is old and while they do keep it clean it just feels old, run down and dingy. The hallways are long painted in grey with no pictures.
The room was basic. I had an ocean front view (gorgeous) but the carpet was old and pulled up. The bathroom was dark, paint pealing, cheap bath products (thank goodness for walgreens across the street). They don't provide wash clothes! My room did have a flat screen TV but the color was off.
A few other general observations:
Wifi best near rooms 07- 09, 24-26, 15-17
Elevator to the left was off by 1 floor so look at floor number when door opens.
Few nights smoke smell came into my room.
Hear next door neighbor tv - very thin walls.
Travel partner had no hot water until maintenance fixed the problem.
There is a business center but it's privately owned so you pay to use Internet and $1.00 per Page to print/fax.
It became a running joke from the conference attendees about how bad this place was.
The location was not ideal not much around at all.
For $160 a night would have expected at least 3.5 star hotel.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Steeped in pop culture history; Deauville Beach Resort is not only a present day getaway favorite, it is also historically an all-star Hollywood destination. Its most historic moment came in 1964 when Ed Sullivan brought his celebrated "Really Big Show" to the hotel's Napoleon Ballroom featuring what was to become one of the biggest music groups in history --The Beatles. Deauville Beach Resort's history of glitz and glamour has been long in the making before the memorable 1964 presence of The Beatles. The hotel was a favorite of the 1950's and 60's stars such as Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr., Dean Martin, Joey Bishop and Tony Bennett, to just name a few. They were attracted to the Deauville for both: professional and personal reasons. Holding packed-house performances at the famed Napoleon Ballroom and at the same time enjoying one of America's finest beach destinations. In 1957, the Deauville Beach Resort was reconstructed following the MiMo architecture aesthetics. It received the "Hotel of the Year" award and gave rise to the jewel it is today. Its doors reopened to a fully booked season of glamour, which set forth the coming of a new era for the Deauville. One of the jet-setting events at the hotel and Miami Beach's history was the creation of the "Cavalcade of Stars" show in 1959. Created by hotelier Morris Lansburg, guests from various neighboring hotels were transported to the Deauville for an unforgettable evening of all-star entertainment. Some of the world's most loved stars performed in the Napoleon Ballroom during these so called "rolling parties." Stars featured in the lineup included Red Buttons, Lonesome George Gobel, Judy Garland, Louis Armstrong, Sophie Tucker, The Ritz Brothers, Connie Francis and Tony Bennett. ... more less
