I stayed at the Shore Club from June 30- July 4th and I have to say that I was extremely disappointed by both the service and the accomodations. The rooms are very small and are furnished with IKEA looking furniture. The floors are concrete, grey and unpleasing to the eye.
The pool area is nothing to write home about either. The hotel boasts a pool bar that has over 75 different types of rum, but when I tried to order a simple pina colada the bar tenders didnt even have the malibu rum that I requested and did not want to make one for me fresh (they wanted to give me a pre-made drink out of the machine). Price is not an issue for me when I travel and Im receiving top notch quality and service, but to get a pre-made pina colada for the price of $18.50 in a paper cups is absolutely ludacris.
The service at the hotel was non-existant. When I travel I like to be waited on hand and foot (why else stay in a 5 star hotel?), I did not hear "can I help you?" once during my entire stay.
I live near Manhattan so I have been to quite a few elegant resteraunts and clubs and was not impressed at all with the Skybar (the club) or Nobu and/or Ago, the two resteraunts on the premises.
The hotel seemed to accomodated guests who looked liked they had saved their whole lives to stay at a five star hotel. It was very transparent that the guests who stay there generally are wanna be's we stay there simply to say that they have stayed in a 5 star hotel. The behavior by the pool was classless..people cursing and yelling and acting like wild animals.
I went to the Delano for dinner (at the Blue Door) and the hotel was beautiful. If you want to stay at a true 5 star hotel, I would recommend this place. The bungalows alongside the pool are simply fabulous.
Hope this review makes you think twice before you book the Shore Club Hotel.
