The overall room was absolutely gorgeous. Clean, comfortable, the beds were fantastic and everything was fresh and modern. However, a couple of hours after check in, I ran in to two separate circumstances where housekeeping entered my room without knocking and un-announced. The first time I let it go, while not thrilled. The second time was when I had just...

Thank you for alerting us to the unannounced visit from our Housekeeping team. We will be sure to review our strict standards of knocking and awaiting a response before entering a guest room. Glad you enjoyed our Food & Beverage outlets and we hope you will allow us an opportunity to redeem ourselves. We're always here for you.

We booked months ahead but when we arrived on Sunday, February 26 they gave us a room overlooking a roof which was for handicapped guests. The shower was tiny and hard to use. The shuttle service to St Armands Circle was very good. The pool area and beach were pretty. We had dinner at their 8th floor restaurant which had...

What a great room with a fabulous team. CB took the time to make me feel welcome as I worked overlooking the beach from the 8th floor - thank you! The front desk was efficient and welcoming, especially our VA team.

We were staying in a condo across the road and spent most days here. Right on the beach, good sized pool and separate pool for adults. Happy hour starts at 5:00 - 7:00 pm with amazing sunset views on the I think 7th floor. Staff friendly and helpful

Beautiful clean room, a few steps away from a very cute clean clear water beach! Parking garage is safe with lights and camera! Shuttle service always available to restaurants and shopping! I'm very picky and this resort is perfect 👌🏽

Romantic great location. Stay in south tower. Close to St. Armand's for great shopping and restaurants. Beautiful sunset view and great restaurant on site. We loved it and will defiantly go back. Could hear the waves from inside our room when we open slider doors. So close to ocean. Great fun atmosphere by the pool and wonderful courtyard too.

I paid over $700 to stay here for two nights. That was a discounted rate from a room block. I didn't get to enjoy the resort amenities because I was there on business. But, for this kind of money I don't think I should have roaches in my kitchenette or a loud whining generator that I could hear everywhere in...

Compared to some vacation resorts this is small but still very enjoyable. I would recommend it for families or couples. Clean facility with all the amenities. Great convenient location walkable to many shops and restaurants. We had a beachside room on the 14th floor so our view was fantastic and the room was spacious, updated and clean. It was in...

I stayed on the top floor, 14, and the room was to die for. My jaw dropped when I saw the room , balcony, kitchen, dining area, and bathroom. Just beautiful. The views were gorgeous from the balcony. I would highly recommend this resort for business, couples, or family.
