My wife and I stayed here for a couple of nights in April for a friend's wedding and the hotel was quite good. The room was somewhat 'standard' but the bathroom was very nice. We also used the spa, which was reasonably priced and had good facilities.
We had a view of the outdoor pool (which is gorgeous) and the Sea... which was the view you want.
The breakfast, which was included, is probably the BEST hotel breakfast I have EVER had (and I've done quite a bit of traveling) with LOTS of selection, tremendous quality, and great service. If I was staying in Beirut again, I would return just for the breakfast buffet.
We also liked the hotels proximity to the rebuilt downtown, the "Souk" mall and the Zaitunah Bay. All were very close, and a nice stroll.
