Great location

Posted 18-Nov-2014
Pros: We loved the location and the staff.
Cons: Although it is tricky being right off the beach, they could do a better job of vacuuming the sand out of the carpet.
Location: Great beaches, restaurants, nighlife and shopping. Perfect long weekend location.
The Essex House provided a great relaxing retreat one block from the beach and the option to party at their sister property, The Clevelander, which is right next door. The staff was very friendly and accomodating.

Posted 4-Nov-2014
Pros: friendly and helpful staff
Cons: windows for fresh air, no leaves in the pool
Location: everything is nearby or in walking distance. The clevlender is always lively with entertainment. it is steps away from the beach and the strip
Hotel staff is very welcoming, friendly and helpful. They made sure we were comfortable. The windows in the room dont open so it wouldn't allow for fresh air, and the pool had alot of leaves floating around. good location, and overall good experience.

Nice hotel. Close to the beach

Posted 9-Oct-2014
Rooms were not huge unless you stay in a suite. They were big enough for two people though.(bathroom and a king size bed. The hotel staff is really nice. They have complimentary breakfast which was a bonus. They have half off appetizers and alcohol from 4 to 8 everyday. A nice pool which is not huge but very relaxing. You can use the Clevelander hotel right next to it which has an outside pool with 3 bars and live music with a dj all day and night. Overall the stay was great and the hotel was clean and affordable.

Charming staff and beautiful hotel

Posted 3-Oct-2014
Pros: Rooms-clean,comfy bed,aircon, spacious Hotel staff, hotel resturant, location
We stayed for a 2 week holiday. We were always warmly greeted each day. helped with best places to eat. Front desk booked shopping tours, taxis you name it! The staff really went above and beyond . Room was always cleaned to perfection. The hotel lobby is gorgeous! Our room was lovely. No complaints. No noise like I'd read on trip advisor. The resturant attached to the hotel has the most Devine sushi. A must while staying.
