Pros: Fabulous ocean facing room, feels like you are right on the water. Great design on the first floor with the living area a few steps below the bedroom. Great bathroom. Great fireplace. Good coffee. Staff were extremely helpful and service very prompt. Great little 4 to 6 wine/cheese platter. You pay for valet parking, but can take the car out and in as much as you like, plus (and this is a very big plus), they let you keep the car in the valet (with suitcases) until 4 o'clock, (past the 12 o'clock check out after you vacate the room), so you can wander around a bit after check out. Cons: No hot water for my bath. Bed was lumpy and uncomfortable (if they are going to put a feather insert under the fitted sheet, first of all they should use a fitted sheet, and second, make sure the feather or whatever it is under, is consistently spread throughout the bed instead of heavy lumping in the middle! Breakfast coffee was good but the fruit platter was downright bad. Grapes where off, orange slice was juiceless, watermelon not ripe, altogether bad. Eggs were perfect. Muffin and coffee cake were good.
