There was a nice beach across the street. The beach had umbrellas and chairs for rent. The pool had a bar in it. You could sit on a post in the water and drink. Very close to Pleasure Peir. The water temperature was 83 degreesF.

Great Hotel! All rooms have beach view. Very relaxing and convenient to drive to. Pool was great. We enjoyed the hotel and the location. Walking on the seawall was fantastic. Great restaurants within walking distance. We would stay there again.

I'm finding it difficult to express how wonderful this hotel is. We went for our last vacation before my wife will give birth. I let the hotel know this, and they had two towels in the shape of a heart, and a fresh bottle of wine in the room with a note! The bed was comfy, the room was fun...

Great location and views. A little pricey during summer months. Walk across street to beach and Pleasure Pier is only a few blocks down. Pool is small but there's a swim up bar with a restaurant on the property.

Enjoy gulf breezes from your balcony, enjoy the swimming pool and swim up to the bar or sit at the open air bar with an unobstructed view if the gulf of Mexico. Friendly staff and cold drinks. Has a wonderful tropical feel.

This hotel gives the appearance that they just slapped some makeup on a pig. I expected better from DoubleTree! I know it used to be a Holiday Inn, but all they did was paint and replace the furnishings. It still seems very old. The pillows were uncomfortable. No one in our party slept well and the A/C did not cool...

Had a great time! The hotel was clean and the staff friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the pool and easy access to the beach. Had a couple of long waits at the pool bar due to only one bartender working both the pool and regular bar but wasn't too bad.
