No free wifi
You can dress a hotel up as much as you like but at the end of the day it's the little things that matter. No amount of cool design and edgy décor can cover up shoddy (and rude!) service, uncomfortable beds, loud and difficult to control air conditioning, or disappointing food and drink. The check in staff was rude, the cocktail waitress was rude and slow, the food at breakfast was cold, my room was hot and cold, and the bed had been made by someone who doesn't believe in tucking in a fitted sheet to eliminate wrinkles. Even at half the price it was a rip off.
the hotel is clean, good location & nice pools
the ocean front pool was to cold they charge $34 a night to park they tried to charge me $25 just to take the goodie box & alcohol out of my room - insane
Not the best or easiest to get around
Loved the glass shower and beach front view from the balcony.
Long check in wait time.
The staff was friendly and verv accommodating.
There was some confusion with the check in and check out times. The bathroom in the room lacks privacy.
Beautiful hotel, great rooms, excellent in house restaurant, cool bar and lounge, wonderful staff
Design to the top. "W" stands for "Weird". The lobby is the "Living Room", the health club "Sweat", the pool is "Wet" and so on. Great glass shower in the middle of the room => do not share your room with someone you're not intimate with. Jelly fish tank in the restaurant with LED lights. Fur alligator on the bed with remote control in its mouth etc...
I arrived on Saturday evening when the music in the "living room" (sic) was so loud, that I had to scream at the lady behind the reception to get heard. Also, the air condition was way too cold, up to a point where I got so cold in the bar, that I wouldn't have a drink.
Very friendly attentive staff
No help offered with luggage or to find room or to work gadgets in room. AC set to 55 F on arrival -ridiculous waste of energy. Dirty spashes on wall took 3 days to remove. Room service took 70 minutes to deliver. woken at 2am on first night by alarm radio. Woken at 6-30 am on last night by wake up call to wrong room. Not enough elevators, long waits and crowded elevators. Little things, but at that high price it should be perfect.Not worth the extra for a south view. You still could not get sun on the balcony in March. View not much different to north view, but a big difference in price.
Your employees were very helpful and kind.
a little expensive,however competitive.
Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Made you feel welcome and nothing was too much trouble.
Noise between rooms was surprising. Walls disnt seem to be well insulated. We were shifted to another room though upon request and thsi was done very exoediently.
it is very well designed, the staff was super cool and the whole ambiance is tres chic!
very, very expensive on the food & beverage side. We has food and drinks poolside all day and then dinner at steak 954 and we spent about $400 daily!
