This is a very nice hotel and feels very comfortable with the old Florida charm. There is construction going on with a new condo being built next door but that is not the fault of this hotel. There was little noise before 9 or after 5 so the people that complained on here shouldn't blame the hotel. The hotel is very clean, modern, and the staff is very friendly. It is right on the beach, close to many things to do within walking or short cab ride. The restaurant downstairs is excellent with plenty of choice. Additionally, the covered porch is very nice in the evening for a glass of wine and relaxing. There is also plenty of lounge space for getting sun with four separate areas to lay out, and, as a bonus, the pool never shuts down at night. You can also walk right out and watch the sun come up.
We paid extra for an ocean view room which I probably wouldn't do again. I'd rather have a balcony to sit out on. The room was large, plenty of space, plenty of toiletries (Aveda products) and a separate toilet/shower. The shower was one of the best I've had in a hotel, very powerful and always hot. Air conditioning worked great.
Only complaint is from the service level. When we got there, it took over an hour to get our luggage to our room, over an hour for room service, and when we left, over an hour for a bellhop (we finally left the bags and went downstairs) and had called ahead to have our car ready and it wasn't there (took about hour twenty minutes). Its sad that the service level isn't there yet because this is an amazing hotel that is worth staying at. I'd come back again for a nice long weekend as I can look past these issues, but for someone catching a plane, it could be tough.
