The discrepancy in reviews suggests that the rooms must be partially refurbished. We stayed in a beautiful large, ocean view room with king bed. The furnishings all seemed quite new, and it was a really nice room.
The hotel is on a quiet spot, right on the beachfront, convenient for everywhere in the area, and a short walk to St Armands Circle where there are a number of restaurants and shops.
We booked through hotels.com and, whether or not we got lucky, could not have asked for a nicer room for the price.
