“Great Location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2012

My wife and I stayed at the Anglers a year ago, but decided to try The Hotel this year. Based on two nights in each place, The Hotel has a better location, bigger rooms, a better pool and the Anglers has better service. The valet system at TH needs work. It took 30 minutes one time and 25 minutes another time to get our car. If you weren't careful, it could cause you to miss your plane. The room was great, the pool was great, the beach chairs were wonderful. I would stay again, but think about finding a ramp for my car instead of using the valet service.

I liked the location of this hotel, the roof top pool, and the open shower was cool. What I did not like was the loud toilet, paper thin walls, ikea type furniture, dirty carpet, frosted window (can't see out), slow elevator, and every time the person above us walked it was so loud it sounded like they were going to come through the floor. The place is not bad but I would not recommend with all the other options.

Location of this hotel is wonderful, right behind Ocean Drive where people watching doesn't get much better. The restaurant is located outdoors and we found it to be too noisy to have a conversation, quality of food (breakfast) was excellent.
The rooms are funky with a few nice touches like jelly beans and some nuts at no charge. Beds very comfortable, service was cordial even though Jim, the concierge, screwed up big time by forgetting to tell the tour company we needed a pick up for the city tour.
All in all, worth a return visit.

This was our second stay at The Hotel and was once again very pleased with the overall accomodations. The location and staff are top knotch. The pool area remains a poplar option over spending time on the beach which is less than one block away. Beach chairs and towels are included in the room rate and are set up for you by the beach staff. The chairs are super comfortable making a day atbthe beach quite inviting. The rooms are small but well equipped. This is a great spot for couples- not a large pool area for kids.

We stayed for one night after visiting Cuba so the whole affluence of the area was quite a contrast. The Hotel was the perfect size and location. The bell boys were very helpful. The rooms and bathrooms are small but interestingly decorated in the Art Deco influenced style. It would be great if they had a place to hang your wet bathing suit. The windows open so you can enjoy the sea breeze!
The roof top pool has a beautiful view of the ocean, a variety of comfortable chairs and a good bar. The beach is only a block away so you have another swimming option.
Lots of shopping and dining nearby. We enjoyed getting the NY Times and having breakfast at the News Cafe a few doors away.
