Room was tiny for the cost! No lamp in the room, not enough towels! $49 to valet park, $25 amenities fee and they Took $300 on the room for incidentals!!!!! Apparently no manager or supervisor available at 6pm and I checked out over 7 hours ago AND I still haven’t had a call back... First time staying here and will NEVER stay here again! Back to the Viceroy/Shore for me!!
Ocean view room and location
Service slow and bartender at pool inattentive and forgetful The room had a lot of prior damage to it and the bed was so uncomfortable
Very disappointed. The lift didn't work so we had to walk up 5 flights of stairs or use the small service lift. There was no bedside lighting only overhead main room lighting so we could not read in bed or have soft light without waking the other person. Very frustrating. Rooms smaller than expected Badly positioned light switches we couldn't find.
I loved the location, the Art Deco design and the amenities: coffee, free bottled water and fast reliable room service.
The broken elevator!!!! It was such a hassle lining up with the penthouse bar visitors!!!!
Excellent staff super location
Room we stayed in could do with some updating but overall stay was very good.
