Crowded, noisy, adjacent to the beach. The ocean is only a hundred yards away down the boardwalk.
An attractive brand new hotel, and great for families, but I am not sure how well it will wear long-term.
I'd say it was an excellent four star category with its 49 rooms/suites, and additional one to two bedroom residences for rent through ther hotel.
Be aware that there are ONLY four full-on, stunning ocean view accomodations -- 201 (atlantic suite), 215, 301 and 315.
The website makes it look like there are lots of direct ocean views rooms - not true - you might have to walk out onto your balcony and crane your head to the left in order to see the ocean and not just the neighboring homes.
If you are going to ask for a good bay view, try to get one on the 3rd floor. Ask for 310, 312, 314 or 316
Most incredibly comfortable bed I have ever slept on.
Fabulously comfortable vanishing edge jacuzzi tub. But the towels were shockingly small, thin and rough.
Nice to have the gas firelpace that flips on with a switch, and the flat screen tv.
Bathrobes were soft but only one size and far too small and short. They need to order larger sizes for women, let alone for men - if you are anything bigger than a women's size 8, forget it!
A/C was efficient. There is free wifi. I
Housekeeping was very nice and so were all the other employees.
Room service breakfast was great. Dinner at Seasons was very good too.
Maintenance of the hotel grounds is a bit sloppy - trash was by the beach shack, chairs are stacked up on the lawn by the boardwalk and remained so for a few days, chairs were stacked up in the hallway by our room, the elevator smells a bit stuffy and strange, etc.
The famous Mansions at Newport are only an hour's drive away, so that is a nice day trip.
