Absolutely loved the room - spacious, beautiful furnishings, very comfortable and spotless. Good ethernet connection instead of WI FI - but that is the case in half the hotels I've stayed in from coast to coast, despite what some reviewers have said. If they stayed in hotels more often (some years I have logged 250 hotel nights), they would know better than to expect WI FI everywhere they go.
The saying goes "you get what you pay for" and if it weren't for the construction noise seven days/week, I would say this property might be worth the high prices. Even with the warning, it is very tedious to hear the work going all day. Supposedly it will be over soon.
After the construction ended, I went out onto the good sized balcony to enjoy the view of the Gulf. I was on the top floor of my building so the view should have been quite nice. However, after sundown, you literally can no longer see the Gulf from any of buildings that face the pool because an ultra high intensity light has been hung outside the wing closest to the pool. My guess is that it was done due to guest complaints about folks misbehaving in the pool at night. If so - why not hang it lower near the pool so those of us on upper floors can still enjoy a bit of the view we had looked forward to? As it is now, it is so bright and placed so that everyone's view is wiped out by this intense light. Ugh.
If I return, I will opt for the oceanfront buildings and the oceanfront rooms so that I can look out and see the lovely Gulf in spite of the ultra intense lighting of the pool area. And the construction will be done to further enhance my enjoyment of this great setting.
