This hotel is across the street from Treasure Island Beach. We stayed in a 2 bedroom/2 bathroom unit on the 4th floor. The room was huge, it fit our family's needs perfectly. The master bedroom faces the gulf and has access to the balcony, as does the living room.
First the positives: very spacious room, fully functional kitchen (including pots, pans, silverware and dishes), beautiful bathrooms. The unit is very stylish (although not my style, but still lovely) and offers flat screen TV's with cable in both bedrooms, as well as the living room. The front desk staff and housekeepers were friendly and accommodating, the location of the hotel is perfect. Plenty of restaurants and activities within a 10 minute drive. The pool and grounds were immaculate, kept in pristine condition. The hotel is very quiet, elevators always at the ready, nice under-building parking which keeps the vehicle much cooler than sitting in the FL sunshine all day. All lights, appliances, remotes were fully functional in the room (a big plus!).
The only negatives are small: the WiFi was terrible, continually lost signal and kicked me off the server (had to re-enter access password about 5 times a day). The hot tub was drained and not functional during our stay (no problem, because the pool was beautiful). We had a missing balcony chair.
And some small logistical notices (not the hotel's option to improve): while the hotel is directly across the street from beach access, be advised it is a LONG walk, especially carrying a baby as we were... bring a wagon! Also, the set up of the room windows and balconies is beautiful... but offers very little privacy. When you sit on the balcony, you can be seen and heard by every other hotel guest on his balcony. You can also be seen in your room by other guests if you leave the shades open (and who doesn't want to see that view?) But overall, these issues are minor because the positives far outweigh them.
This hotel was an excellent value for the spacious rooms, full kitchen, and cleanliness of the grounds and unit. We would absolutely stay here again, my family hated to leave.
