It seems that people here at Tripadvisor are upset because they booked a room at Handys and then discovered (gasp!) that it isn't a 5-star hotel and offers no coupons, transportation service, and--god forbid--no pool. Which proves that people are basically stupid and don't do their homework before booking..
Look folks, if you want the 5-star treatment, then book a $350.00 per night suite at the Marriott. If you want a clean, no-frills, inexpensive place to stay, then book a room at Handys. I recently stayed at Handys from July 15 -- 21 and I have no complaints. My suite was very clean, the bed was comfortable, I got free wifi, the staff were very efficient and helpful, and I received a voucher for breakfast at the hotel next door. I didn't expect anything more because I DID MY RESEARCH BEFORE I BOOKED AND KNEW WHAT I WOULD BE GETTING FOR MY MONEY. I paid $106.00 per night through Hotwire, which is actually a very good price for the summer season.
I will definitely stay at Handys again the next time I'm in town.
