This is a beautiful hotel, 1 block from a fabulous beach. The accommodations are very comfortable and very clean, and as numerous others have mentioned, there are a tremendous number of extras (books to read, DVD's to borrow, cookies, pie, croissants, wine, cheese, and on and on!). It's really one of the most pleasant places I've stayed and I travel for both pleasure and business quite a bit. I can hardly wait to get back! And, yes, the staff at the hotel is outstanding..so helpful and nice to work with.
