We were given a below ground level room. There was a small basement type window and you could hear people going by at all hours of the day and night. The wing of the hotel we were put in reeked of smoke, and the minifridge was clearly not cleaned.

Cost of valet parking is $60 for one night. Valet lot must be pretty far away, the valet guy took my ticket and said be back in 8 min. Not too awful, but maybe try to have more than 2 valet guys at check-out time. Also, a call ahead car retrieval.

The staff were accommodating when I wanted to check out late. The location is right on the pier, which is this hotel's best quality (because of food and touristy things) and its serious downside (because of parking).
Bad Tags
The parking was over $50 per day at the hotel--nearly half the price of the room itself. This was a serious gotcha moment. I will never be going back.

It has separate buildings, and we were placed in a room away from the pool. When we shop for hotels, and choose the pool option, we expect to be able to use the pool without crossing the street to do so. Also, both rooms we used were old and need updates.
