I've stayed here three times. This time I paid extra for the Catalina Lower Suite. I wouldn't do that again. It overlooks the rook of the Surfside building, and you don't have a 180 degree view of the ocean. Also, it overlooks a terrace where there were a few weddings, so there was some extra noise with the set-up, etc. The rooms/furnishings are in need of an overhaul. The sofa had a stain on it, and it's all looking a little old. Overall, the staff was amazing and you can't beat the location.

I like how close our room was to the beach. The views were spectacular! The food at Splashes was excellent! I thought the hotel was beautiful! It just needs a little updating.

This hotel is in an ideal location. You can’t get closer to the ocean unless you’re on a cruise line. Beautiful views and soothing sounds of the ocean at night. Rooms could use an update as they are a bit worn. Small pool area can get overcrowded depending on when you go.
