Nice Hotel Next to Fort DeRussy Park
We chose this hotel to be close to Hale Koa Resort where my son's fiancee and her family were staying. The hotel is about a 10-minute walk through the Fort DeRussy Park away from the beach. The hotel restaurant was closed due to renovations while we were there. One of the elevators (out of 3) was being renovated as well, so elevator waits were sometimes long. (It's a 16-story building.) We were lucky to get a 1st floor room because the first floor has the ice machine, the laundry room, the pool entrance, and access to a BBQ patio, as well as having larger lanais (balconies) than the other floors. The staff were very nice, but the concierge is an Expedia Local representative and may try to convince you to go to a "free" breakfast at another hotel which is actually a time-share presentation. They also upsold me when I booked an island tour through them. The room has a daily resort fee, so take advantage of the free DVD Now rentals and the beach towels available.
