Pros: Fantastic upgrade to beautiful 1BR SUITE. Spacious, two bedrooms, and prime access to promenade and beach. Really a wonderful hotel. Felt like superstars living here and would highly recommend the 1 BR suite. We had three kids and it was cool.
Cons: it took about an hour before our reservation showed up in their system. Smaller elevators felt a lot like NY, but it was a cozy experience.
