Beautiful Historic Property

Las Vegas, Nevada

This property has so much history that aside from reading about the property take the tour. Former guests include Marilyn Monroe, Joe DiMaggio, presidents, etc. It was the home of the new York Yankees for Spring Training during the Depression, etc. Bed and linens are high quality. Bathrooms are small, but their is a nice vanity in the room. Use the vanity! Plan accordingly. Excellent amenities on the property with our rate, check details when booking. We had access to beach chaise lounges, etc. Nice gym and yoga room. Daily beach yoga, is a must do!

Wanted to be pampered

Fort Myers, Florida

My husband and I enjoy getting away, even if it’s just for one night. We like trying different hotels and restaurants. We had wanted to give this place a try. Aside from the beach front property we were looking for a fabulous dinner. Upon arrival we were greeted my very nice staff. We were able to check in early. We were ready to eat. We had to wait a little while for the pool bar to open, because we didn’t want breakfast. We had a really nice server out there. We had tostados and wings. Both were great. We were looking forward to a fine dining dinner. Unfortunately that didn’t happen. We weren’t impressed by the menu. We ended up stopping at one of the bars for a drink and ceviche. The ceviche flavor was good, but literally less then two forks full. We ended up at the only other restaurant open for dinner. Sadly that was a let down as well. Our room was wonderful. The beach service is also great. Service was good, other then a few incidents. We will definitely stay there again. We will just have dinner elsewhere. Room price is up there, you can self park or valet. Either way you are charged. The room has candy, soda and mini fridge. Anything you chose to use, there is a charge for.
