Don't know why people badmouth this hotel! It is lovely inside and out, overlooking the ocean with every room having a water view. The valet charge is typical of all oceanfront hotels, so no problem! The pool is on the small side but the water is warm and there are comfy cabanas that you can snuggle in if windy. We had breakfast in the Bistro and the buffet was wonderful for only $15. Happy Hour there is also a bargain for oceanfront spots. The front desk staff were helpful but young, probably going for the Euro-cool style. But you could look up restaurants on their touchscreen that lists dozens of spots in the area, by location and cuisine. We did the Water Taxi trip from the Doubletree just over the Intracoastal bridge, just a 5 minute walk. It was great, getting on after 5pm, you pay only $10/pp. The guides told us all about the expensive houses and yachts along the intracoastal. The best trip for the money in South Florida. And if you want a filling lunch, go to Primanti's, a Pittsburgh tradition, with stuffed sandwiches that will fill you belly.
