We've just completed a 7 night stay and I can't speak highly enough of the Outrigger.
When we checked in I asked to be on a higher floor, away from elevators. The manager at check in offered me three different rooms - one on the 6th floor closer to the beach but also closer to elevators; a second room on the 8th floor which was similarly positioned; and a room on the 14th floor, a bit further from the water but also far from the elevator. We chose the room on the 14th floor in the Pacific tower and really loved it. From here we had a great view of the water - think the trick here is to get on as high a floor as possible. Only small issue was the sound of delivery trucks reversing to unload in the hotel next door which could be heard from around 6am.
You do get a bit of sound from people in rooms around you but this is the case in most hotels and we weren't impacted by this at all.
Balcony was small but easily fits two people.
At $35 a night valet parking is expensive so we chose to park at an outdoor car park a couple of blocks away. Max here was $20 per night or $10 if out by 7am. We didn't have any problems with this. Valet were a bit frustrating whenever we pulled up to drop something off but I suppose it's their job to know how long you're going to be there etc.
The Wyndam timeshare folk are a pain both inside the hotel and on the street but a firm no worked ok for us and we weren't overly harassed.
Hotel restaurants weren't fabulous. Our favourite was the Ocean House given it is right on the water and there's full table service. Shorebird requires you to cook your own dinner on a massive BBQ which wasn't our thing. The other restaurant towards the front of the hotel plays live music until 9pm each night but we didn't try that one so i won't comment.
Overall we loved how close we were to the beach and felt very comfortable in our room. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel to others.
