After multiple stays at Park Central, we decided to try something with more modern fixtures. And since we regularly stay at Roommate Grace in NYC, we knew what to expect from Roommate Waldorf Towers on Ocean Drive. It did not disappoint. We stayed in the deluxe ocean-view suite. I knew when I booked that I had picked a good room, but the desk clerk told me we had “THE room.” It was on the top floor (3rd floor) on the corner with windows facing both east toward the ocean and north along 9th. The room was quite large with a long white couch, and the bathroom was big too, with both a bathtub and a shower. This room is designed for accessibility, so it is extra spacious. Like most Roommate hotels, closet and drawer space are limited. A simple rearranging of the shelves and safe in the closet would allow longer clothes like dresses to actually fit. Duh. Being on the corner, one would expect lots of noise, but the window are double-layered, making the room surprisingly quiet. The goofy frig makes more noise than Mangos across the street. The AC worked great. The restaurant that fronts the hotel is a bit annoying to pass through, but that comes with the territory on Ocean Drive. Unfortunately, the hotel has no arrangement with anyone on the beach offering chairs and umbrellas. That was a come-down from what we were used to with Park Central. All in all, we had a very good stay in the Towers.
