THE MARINA TOWER IS NO LONGER A PART OF THE EQUUS.
CONS- When we arrived we thought that it didn't look very nice. You have to walk up a flight and a half of stairs to get to the main lobby. The elevator is right when you walk in so it felt like the staff doesn't have to communicate with you if they don't want to. We were really sad that there wasn't a hot tub. We came back from our first day of walking all day and all night and wanted to soak in the hot tub and they said it was apart of the "Marina Tower" an they no longer are apart of that. They have a teeny tiny pool that is freezing cold and it is shaded so you can't lay out in the sun. Another problem was hotel parking. We rented a car in the morning and then at night when we got back to the hotel there was 1 slot open. So we parked in it and went to tell them we were parked (it's $18 a night) and they said the lot was full for the night. They only had 8 parking slots for the whole hotel. We had to go to a parking garage across the street. It was okay but it was just inconvenient. and annoying. I asked in the morning if there was any open slots and they said they wouldn't know for awhile until someone checked out or returned the car. The hotel is right next to the street so the road noise was extremely loud.
PROS- The room was fine. The mini fridge was nice so we could buy bottled water at the grocery store to save a little money. I say the room was nice because we were only in it at night to go to bed. It was a good location. Close to many fast food and restaurants, shopping and the beach.
