    Very good

    Was close to the beach. Liked being able to walk to St. Armand Circle. Was easy to get places. The staff was very helpful and friendly.

    Know that you were paying for beachside, but the penthouse room we were in was very old. Walls were extremely thin as we could hear our neighbors at all hours of the day/night. Rude guests. Staff had talked my husband into upgrading to penthouse room-felt like a goldfish in a bowl-would have preferred balcony room.

    Nice beach access..but, many other hotels nearby had beach access as well

    UNDER CONSTRUCTION - No consideration for the guest who had to deal with 8:00am drilling and hammering, elevators out of service, and early closing for hotel amenities. For the $$$ - NOT WORTH IT! The front desk staff was not helpful when questioned about early hammering.. "Nothing I can do about it". BS!! I'll not be back here even when they are done or they become the best looking hotel on the beach. Not worth the $$$.

    Very close to the beach and shopping while not being in a busy area. Room service us available. 7th floor restaurant has a beautiful view.

    There is a 2 lane road you have to cross to get to the beach, although the road was not very busy. Parking is limited. Staff were excruciatingly slow in restaurant, but this may be due to Sunday brunch preparation that looked very interesting.

    We liked the location, the staff iin general s very kind, specially at the cafeteria, we don't have any complaint about them. Congratulations!!
