I booked this hotel kind of last minute for spring break so my 2 QN ST Suite wasn't the cheapest but I was happy to have found a good hotel room still available. I didn't follow the directions from their webiste but my Maps app to me directly to it with a couple of interpretations. Upon arrival, I was happy to see the parking lot wasn't too crowded. I already knew it wasn't directly on the beach, so that didn't bother me. At check-in, I was immediately greeted (long strwbrry blnde), asked my name, re-assurred it was pre-paid, told about the small hold for incidentals, and given the keys. I took my mom & daughter up. We were on the 3rd fl on the end (higher fl/end of hall best). We were completly excited to see the spaciousness of the room...mini kitchen/bar, big sofa, chairs, tables, nice powder area, and huge closet. The action bathroom was small though. But there are two sinks in the room. I went back down to unload. Luckily, there was a luggage cart available (sometimes hard to find here). We then decided to grab some food.
That night's rest was pretty good. Limited channel availability (compared to what we're use to at home. They do have HBO. Only one issue the first night, the water was only lukewarm for showering, not steaming hot. Fine the rest of the time.
The next and subsequent mornings we enjoyed the hot breakfast in the lobby. Hot items vary by day such as omellette, sausage patty, potatoes, bacon, sausage links. They always have the bread items, including waffles, oatmeal, fruit, cereal and the best robust coffee ever! Kudos to the lady that works that area. My daughter made the biggest mess from her high chair and she stayed friendly even remembering her name.
The best part, my toddler would have to say, is the kiddie pool/fountain area out back. The sprinklers shoot out at various heights with a couple being perfect for my little one. She loved it! She even liked sitting on the first step of the actual pool (while I watched of course).
Overall, if you don't have to be on the beach, you like spacious suites, free hot breakfasts, and you're looking for a kiddie pool, pick this hotel. Convienent to all the happenings at Pier Park too.
