Lovely hotel by the beach with a caveat
Heads up! Do not stay on the south side of the "Tower" unless you like listening to heart pounding music and LOTS of people having a LOUD great time at the on-site nightclub/bar until 2 AM that I did not know about when making a reservation. I think the hotel has an obligation to inform its guests of that situation when you pay a premium rate for a room and expect a premium experience. The room had a great view of the beach and ocean, was well appointed but quite small. On the good side - every staff member I interacted with was very professional, genuine, helpful and pleasant. They made the stay worth it.
