We stayed two nights in the Century ( total $198 + tax) which has a great location at the quieter end of Ocean Drive, just a few minutes from the beach & a short walk to restaurants etc.
The room was quite small, but seemed clean enough. However the aircon was noisy & for us a major inconvenience was not having any reading lights by the bed. There was only one central ceiling light which was extremely bright.
Flat panel TV was good, no in room safe.
Small shower/bathroom area: clean with a number of useful toiletries (sachets of branded shampoo, toothpaste etc) but the shower door did not close completely so the floor got quite wet.
Bed was comfortable, however there was a light outside which flickered on & off all night which disturbed my sleep even through the blinds.
Breakfast was unremarkable- bagels, toast, cereal, juice & hot tea/coffee.
There was a very unpleasant smell in the upstairs corridor-cross between urine & carpet freshener to my nose.
Staff seemed pleasant enough.
We would stay again- just for the location.
