Big Baller living by the beach Jan 09, 2011
This hotel is awesome! I reserved the room blind through Priceline and was pleasantly surprised. I stayed there for 7 nights, with my Mom, over the Christmas and New Years Holidays. We arrived early on Christmas day to a warm welcome. They had rooms available so we received an early check-in. Due to the length of our stay, and our interest in "getting along", we opted to upgrade our room from a studio suite to a 1-bedroom/premium suite, which includes separate living and sleeping areas.

The room was huge. It featured a long entryway that had 2 closets and a washer and dryer. The kitchen was fully-equipped and included a sink, with garbage disposal, full-size refrigerator, dishwasher, 2 stovetop burners, place setting for four with glasses, coffee cups, and all the forks, knives, and other utensils you may need. There was also a coffee maker, with coffee, tea, sugar, a toaster, a dish towel, and dishwasher and laundry detergent. The kitchen also had an island with 2 stools. If pots and pans are needed, you can request them from the front desk.

The dining area is between the kitchen and living room and featured a nice 4 person dining table. The living area featured a sofa bed, chair, and a 32" flat screen TV. The decor was chic, contemporary, and had a warm cozy feeling. I felt very relaxed in the space. The bedroom was huge, had a king size comfortable bed, a walk in closet, and a second 32" flat screen TV. The room was on the 9th floor so our view was amazing over the inter-coastal waterways. The balcony spanned the bedroom and living areas, and had a table with 4 chairs and a lounge chair.

The hotel has an Italian restaurant, fitness center, swimming pool, cabanas by the waterway, a yacht you can rent by the hour, an Escalade that will shuttle you to locations within a 3-mile radius, if its available, and it's located on the water taxi line. The restaurant's chef is Todd English, whom I've never heard of, but we had lunch there one day and it was very good.

The location is great with some restaurants and bars within walking distance; however, I'd recommend having a car. You can also walk to the beach but it's a bit of a longer walk. I didn't do it, but they say it's doable. If you want the touristy more popular section of the beach you have to drive there or take a taxi. A Winn-Dixie is nearby so we bought groceries, we ate at a delicious restaurant called Greek Island Taverna and listened to jazz and blues at a bar called Blue Jean Blues. Both are in walking distance.

I loved this place. We felt at home, it was cozy, the people were nice, it was decorated for Christmas, the Concierge was extremely helpful and made a couple reservations for us. All of the staff was exceptional and the amenities exceeded our expectations. I would definitely recommend this place and look forward to going back.
