We stayed at the hotel for 3 nights at the end of September. We had a luxury room overlooking the ocean on the 5th floor. It was clean and well maintained. Normal sized room, the bed and bedding were very comfortable. Personally, I loved the big walk in shower, real nice. The bathtub was a situated a little wierd but we never used it, no biggie. Nice large screen LCD TV, plenty of channels. The room was quiet, never heard a peep from other rooms. All the staff that we came in contact with were nice and friendly. The concierge was great, very helpful with directions and eating recommendations. Valet parking was expensive at $31 a day but my car was always waiting for me when I called for it...
Short walk to the pier and close to the beach. We LOVED watching all the activity on the beach, people working out, etc. very entertaining! Resturants were close, Montana street is in walkable distance, overall good location. We didn't do the pool program but it looked pretty busy.
I would recommend a stay at this hotel without question. Very nice, we enjoyed our stay.
