We stayed here for a week while on vacation and our stay was just ok. The hotel is fairly new and pretty modern and it just wasn’t what we expected. We had some issues with our bill during the week with vouchers we were given for food and drinks and valet parking, so just check your bill carefully before leaving. They are building two new hotels right in front on this one, so the view of the Gulf is definitely going to be affected once they are completed…just a heads up. We won’t be back to this hotel next year and most likely will return to the Opal Sands, which has better views and amenities. Safe travels!

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for a quick getaway. We were met by valet who was friendly and then I took the elevator to the 5th floor to the lobby to check in while he got out car situated. There was no one was there to greet me for about 5 minutes and just as my patience started to wear thin from a long travel day Stephanie appeared and got us checked in and went over the details. I liked the overall decor of the hotel including our bay facing room. There was a small fridge inside with complimentary water which was a nice touch. Just outside our room was the ice/water machine which was great because I was able to refill my water bottle and the machine dispensed the ice pellets that I like. The hotel was conveniently located to many restaurants, the beach, the pier, many shops- it was great! We only had to use our car once and that was to drive to Tampa. The hotel was pretty quiet even though there were a few kids there. There is bar inside that we never got around to going to, there is also a rooftop situation that we went to check out but didn't stay because there was no view. We did spend some time at the pool but it is very small with limite seating so we didn't stay long. The truffle fries and drinks we got while we were there were good though. Overall, it was a pleasant stay at a conveniently located hotel that had a friendly staff.
Great Stay, Amazing Staff!!!

A short trip to Florida for the holiday. This was right after the hurricane. I was shocked to see all the businesses open.
$29 a night to park
$20 a day for breakfast
At check-in we were advised they were at low capacity for the weekend.
It is a 2 minute walk to the beach
We had a good time utilizing the pool area although I feel the pool bar closing at 5pm was a bit early. I think it was 5p-530p
The hotel has beautiful views at sunset on the bayside/rooftop area
Unfortunately, there are 2 hotel being built on the oceanside which will block most of the ocean views.
I was in room 612. I had 2 sleepless nights at this hotel.
The first night my husband and I thought the music blasting was the small club a few doors down. I mentioned this to front desk with no real reaction from anyone. Come to find out on the 2nd night it was the people in room 610. I called the front desk and they advised they would send someone up. 45 minutes later I called back to front desk then saw the security guard come down the hallway, walk by the room and get back on the elevator. He did not knock. I went downstairs and spoke with the front desk. Finally, they had then turn the must office. At 130 am, the music went back on. They started singing, talking loud and banging on walls.
When I spoke with the night clerk, I advised I would need my room changed if these guests were not checking out the next day. I was advised they were checking out.
Not 1 person offered me any compensation. A free night of parking, a discount on the room, a free meal, free drink. Just nothing. - AGAIN. I did not sleep for 2 days. Finally got some sleep on the last night.
Great location and very comfortable atmosphere

Wonderful hotel with great atmosphere. The bartenders were very friendly and helpful. Rooms were comfortable. A couple we were with, their room was over looked by housekeepers. Front desk tried to assist, but their room never did get serviced. Overall I would recommend. Great location!
