Brittany was above and beyond! Check out was really nice as well, Evelyn was very helpful and attentive. Rooms are really nice, modern decorated, everything is pristine. We loved...

Stayed overnight before our cruise. Paid a little more for a corner room with large windows but view was worth it. Arrived around 2 pm but had to wait about an hour for room to be ready- checkin time is listed as 4 pm so can't really be upset. Had comfortable couch in lobby to wait on. Found a fantastic...

We stayed pre and post cruise and they couldn't be more different. Our room was on the 12 th floor, the room was shabby and the toilet wouldn't refill properly and the cold water tap just dribbled out. The following morning we asked reception to send someone to look at it. We returned to our room around 6 pm and...

The location was great. The view from our room on the 12th floor was amazing! We needed to stay an extra day because of a snow storm. The front desk staff directed me to go to booking.com for a cheaper rate. This saved me over $60... Joe at the pool bar is as good as it gets for service. The...

The hotel is decorated modern/minimalist which is fine and you can't beat the view of the ocean. Attention to detail in our room needed improvement. Replenishment not consistent, one day no clean glasses, another day only decaf coffee no regular. One day no water bottles. Only had breakfast ordering menu for use on the first day.

The hotel is nice and very clean. The pool and hotel grounds are small, but the beach across the street is lovely and you can walk for miles on the beach. The hotel workout room is located in a tiny corner of the lobby and only has a few machines so it didn't appeal to me as 2-3 people made...
