Stayed here for 3 nights. Location is great if you want to be close to beach. Rooms were a little worn but the beds were queen size and very comfortable. Hotel was quiet. Has two very large closets. Bathroom was open (no door) and has a glass door to toilet area so it was a little awkward if you need/want...

Dear Susan K, Thank you for your review! While we're happy that you enjoyed portions of your stay, I am sorry to hear that other aspects did not meet your expectations.

Great hotel, great location and super comfortable beds!! The pool was great! The hotel was very modern and clean. The mini fridge was fully stocked which I loved not having to leave the hotel to get anything. The food from room service was great. The parking was valet only which made it so convenient. Will definitely stay again!!

We have been to this W a few times. It has a great bar and outdoor area as well as a unique pool that has glass sides so you can watch people from below. It directly faces the ocean and if you get a room with a view has a very nice breeze. The hotel has a Steakhouse onsite with...
