This room had a great view of the ocean, even tho it was partial, it was amazing. And only on the 15th floor. The king size bed was perfect too. a few of the plug ins didn’t work, but small setback for the rest of this wonderful room.

The hotel has a great location but it’s old and not worth the money. If you’re going to spend $100 a night there’s better places. But if you get this one on a deal for 60 or $70 then maybe it’s worth it.
