4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
This hotel was lovely, great facilities and restaurants, absolutely fantastic service. I didn’t give it the highest possible rating because of noise. My room (ocean view king) was right above Appian way, which gets a lot of pedestrian traffic at al hours of the night and it was LOUD. It sounded like drunk people having loud conversations right next to my bed every night. The hotel doesn’t control the street, but maybe could invest in more soundproofing?? Because the noise was a problem and woke me up several times every night. Every other aspect of the hotel was fantastic, but if i go back, I’ll sacrifice the ocean view to make sure I’m in a quieter area of the hotel.
