Conveniently located near stores such as Zara, Tommy Hilfiger and Mac, and only one short block away from Ocean Drive and the beach, this new boutique hotel has very modern amenities and décor, and has an enthusiastic manager who greeted us upon our arrival and talked to us, and staff members who assisted us with our luggage and throughout our stay. There is a family-feel to this hotel and the check-in process is very different from the traditional (long) ones.
Our room (two double beds) was spacious and had a pleasant aromatizing scent. Its décor was very modern and the room’s flat screen TV (carries Dish Network) also had a free Internet access feature, Web TV. We took advantage of it since the remote was very easy to use; we went on Google, Pandora, and even on YouTube for karaoke! There is also free wi-fi for those carrying a laptop.
The room also had an alarm clock with an iPod/MP3 dock (great sound), a phone, a work desk, two sofas, three lamps, a mini refrigerator (with two complimentary water bottles), a large mirror, in-room safe, and numerous pillows on the comfortable beds (linen and cushions were top quality as well). There were robes and slippers on the room’s cabinet. The bathroom (with a hair dryer) was very spacious and nicely decorated, as the rest of the room. From our balcony we could even see the beach!
From 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. there is breakfast in the lobby with coffee, tea, orange and cranberry juice, and delicious pastries from the nearby restaurant Manolo’s, where we went for lunch several times (excellent pizzas). During the day, in the lobby there’s fresh water with a hint of lime/lemon and green apples that come in handy before going out for a walk. Underneath the hotel there is a large souvenir shop that is extremely convenient for tourists since all sorts of souvenirs. Ithaca is also within walking distance of Lincoln Road and Española Way. It was a very enjoyable stay and we would definitely come back and recommend it to our family members and friends.
