I will be attending a conference in MB in January taking place at the Sheraton MB Convention Center. It looks as though that hotel is not right on the beach. I realize that January isn't beach season, but for a New Englander, the opportunity to see a beach in winter is a special thing. I am seeking any suggestions of nice and/or favorite hotels to stay in this area. It needs to be a quick and easy walk to and from the Convention Center. Ideally, we'd really like to be somewhere that is right on the beach so we can see/smell the ocean if it gets warm enough to open our window.
Am also welcoming suggestions of your favorite places to eat in the area, also within walking distance.
Thanks in advance for your help!
