While this does not live up to the Waldorf Astoria standards in other cities, it is still a good hotel. The location is pretty central and is very near to many restaurants and clubs. The clubs are late night clubs but you can't hear it from the hotel so it is fine. The rooms, I stayed in 2, are comfortable and clean. The gym and spa are good and the pool, while small, is nice. It also has a pretty large hot tub.
The drawbacks to the hotel in my opinion are that you can only see the ocean from a few rooms and the pool area, there is only one real restaurant, and the bar in the hotel is always empty. Basically it is a nice place to stay if you know what you are getting into. By the way, while I did not see any, the bartender in the lobby told me that there are quite a few hookers from Colombia in the area and he sometimes sees guests bring them up to the room. My friend also told me that the area is known to have a lot of hookers who seek out rich, older men.
If you want to be in a hotel with more people and amenities, I would suggest the Trump Hotel. It is half apartments and half hotel rooms with 5 or 6 bars inside. Plus the architecture is very cool. You don't have views from it either but it is still a cool hotel.
