What is the difference between a deluxe double room and a double room?
The deluxe is higher up. Supposedly better view. But the view is pretty from whole place.
If not mistaken, it's just the difference of the floor. I stayed at deluxe double floor which was located on 3rd floor. But I don't think there's a big difference between 2nd and 3rd floor. It's a three-story building.
As the others have said it is being on the third floor and having more of an uninterrupted view of the water. You're also a little higher up and away from the bar noise at night. It's not a huge hot spot but there are people there all the time since Raymond is an amazing bartender. We stayed in a deluxe room and loved it. If you aren't into climbing stairs I would get a room on the first or second floor.
