Arrival Experience: Efficient, friendly with lots of staff there to assist.
The lobby itself also offers a huge "wow" factor!
Cleanliness: Hand sanitizer stations are everywhere and big
enough so that you can’t miss them. Frequent
cleaning of high touch areas. Touchless digital
transactions throughout the experience. Maid
service options. All rooms have personal
hygiene kits for guests. Television remotes are
sealed in plastic and sanitized. Electrostatic spray
used for rooms and public areas as well as
combination of ionization and UV light technology
for all HVAC.
Soft Goods: Fresh as can be!
Room Lighting: Good! Love the different lighting options over the
bed with dimmer switches
Technology in room: State of the art, plenty of table top outlets for
Bathroom: Double sinks, separate shower and tub, nice lit
make up mirror, fancy television in the bathroom
mirror, plenty of towels and two robes
Closet and drawer space: Nice size closet, safe, drawer space both in the
closet and in the room itself.
Service: 12 on a scale of 1-10!
Mini Bar: Stocked with a variety of soft drinks, beer, water,
wine, hard liquor and snacks
View: Atlantic Oceanfront room with Juliet balcony is my
all time favorite as you sit right over the ocean and
can hear the surf if you open your sliding glass
Sound Proofing: The downside to the oceanfront rooms is that you
can hear the people in the next room if they are
loud talkers. It seems to be less of an issue in the
partial ocean view or garden view rooms
Activities Rating: 10 on scale of 1-10
Concierge Rating: Although remote at present they sent daily texts
asking if they could assist in any way. A definite
10 as we can speak from dealing with them many
times over the years
