Stayed here with 2 teens for Hunter Hayes charity fundraiser at Stone Pony at 2 a.m. Original concerns with safety quickly diminished with heavy security and police presence. Hotel still under renovation so no restaurant or room service... Great view ocenafront 8 th floor ..we had a blast... Great staff... Room was clean and quiet. A little pricey but worth it for safety and short well lit walk to and from The Pony.

Everything was great, clean and as expected, beds, shower, furniture, retriggered. All in excellent conditions and very clean. The view to the sea/beach was great, clean windows, clean towels, everything nice.

Rooms were very dirty. Check in took and hour and a half. Had to change rooms 3 times. Missed a wedding ceremony we were there to attend due to lengthy check in and dirty rooms. A horrible experience.

This hotel had great public spaces for a wedding and the bed was very comfortable. However, the bathroom was a complete mess. The sinks are poorly designed and didn't drain well. The shower, inexplicably, was half open so that the floor became completely soaked. The shower also didn't drain well. The bathrooms are such a joke that most everyone I spoke to about their room could only talk about the disaster that was their bathroom.

They also charge you $20 a night to park in the hotel's lot. Must be an indoor, or at least secured lot, right? No, just an open lot behind the hotel with zero security. You're better off paying the meters.

On Saturday morning, I was awoken by repeated yelling in the hallway by some hotel staff member at about 6:45am. I was then bothered by housekeeping knocking on my door on 3 separate occasions before 11am. The last time they came, the staff member told me his information had us vacating the room that day, even though I was staying another night. So poor coordination between the front desk and housekeeping caused repeated disturbances on what I had hoped would be a quiet, relaxing morning.

This hotel is fine. Don't get me wrong, if you are having an event like a wedding, this hotel will do a very, very nice job. Our friends wedding was fantastic and the public spaces in this hotel are really great. Just be prepared for some pretty lackluster aspects of your stay that leaves you questioning the price tag.

We had a wonderful time. Being so close to the beach was a bonus. The wedding was beautiful and the food great. Plenty of dance space. The rooms
were good size with comfortable beds and pillows. Loved the separation between the beds and the couch area.

I think there are just a few kinks they have to work out. Don't think hotel is finished renovating. The hotel itself is beautiful, we were here for a wedding. Love the chandeliers. The staff is helpful and professional.
