Unfortunately all rooms don’t have fire pits on the balcony. Those are upgraded rooms that you could pay extra for to reserve. You’ll love the hotel! True Ritz style and service!

"pay for ocean view if you can afford it"
"Ocean front with fire pit on first floor."
"Ocean front rooms are lovely!"
"Some 1st floor rooms have patios w/fire pits adjacent to public spaces so you don't have much privacy."
"The hallways are really long, so ask for a room close to the stairs or elevators, if you can't get an oceanview room."
