This hotel is in a prime location for enjoyment of the beach at Lido Key and the great shopping/restaurants at St. Armonds. Attentive, pleasant. responsive staff with the hotel in the midst of receiving upgrades. Gulf front rooms offer beautiful views of the Gulf of Mexico.

This was our second time staying at this property. We had a gulf front King room both times. The gulf view is great. Convenient to walk across street to ocean. As guests we were able to rent umbrella and 2 chaise lounges on the beach for $20 from 9:30--4:30 each day. We would walk from beach back across street to hotel for lunch. Hotel is in walking distance to St. Armand's Circle with lots of shops and restaurants. We also found a couple of great restaurants a short drive away in Longboat Key. The reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 was the room size. The first time we were on a higher floor about midway across the front of the hotel and we have no memory of that room being so small. This time we had a room at one end by the stairwell. (Room 300). It was like staying in a cabin on a cruise ship it was so small. If you bring your luggage in on a luggage rack and need to get on the other side of it you will have to crawl on the bed to get around it. If you sit on the toilet, be careful not to hit your head on the wall in front of you when you bend down. We love everything about this property except the size of the room. It did bother us enough that we probably will not stay there again.
