I rode the elevator a few days ago to the 21st floor to get a view. The view was awesome! Is the hotel under renovation because the elevators were renovated also.
We performed several renovations in the Fall of 2016 including the complete overhaul and updating of the hotel rooms in the tower building. Our elevators were also recently upgraded or replaced.
There were some repairs being done on the elevators in both buildings when I was there early May. I stayed in both buildings on the 22nd floor of the adjacent building and yes the view was wonderful even from some of the bedrooms however the only thing I would recommend the update in those suites are the washer and dryers. I also stayed on the 10th floor in the main building I was at the end of the floor so I had a pretty good view of the ocean day or two and that room on the club levels were completely updated and were amazing.
Not sure it's under renovation, but our suite was a disaster this year. Agree the ocean view is terrific though.
If you are thinking of booking, you may what to stress that you do not want a "rental" suite. This was the reason the front desk staff gave us for the poor quality of of our room.
Not sure that is true, but beware.
It being a rental would not explain the indifference from most of the front desk staff and Housekeeping personnel we ran into.
I don't plan to stay there again.
