    Friendly staff, great location!

    Front desk was fantastic, friendly and helpful, so was valet guy (although didnt use his svc). The restaurant ("The Buillion??) is awful! We waited 1 hr 45 min for our meal, and we were there before they were even busy. They literally kept making other orders instead of ours. Talkedbto waiter many tmes and the manager. Would avoid the place. Great coffee/cafe Brews & Bites on site! Huge old property, convenient location. ** Royal Caribbean is using this hotel for onboard check-in **.

    Our room had a view of the roof right outside our window with old pallets and paint cans. When I asked to change it they said they were full. Thank goodness we were only there one night

    Very good stay.

    Very comfortable for precruise night stay. Great location near downtown. Rooms small but well maintained. Food a little pricey at hotel but was good. Nice sun couches and pool.

  • 6.0.Good

    The hotel was built in the 1920's, with the age of the property comes ventilation issues. We had to request to be moved to a different room due to extreme dampness and musty smells. If you have allergies or asthma you may want to consider a newer hotel. The hotel was very nice, the room was clean, and the staff was very accommodating.

    Beautiful historic hotel in the heart of Nassau

    Beautiful historic hotel in the heart of Nassau. The private beach is amazing!! Excellent customer service. Friendly and knowledgeable staff throughout the hotel. The perfect location for walking and exploring Nassau. ATM in hotel, full service restaurant and bar. Note: we called the hotel the day before we arrived and were told the hotel offered a shuttle from airport to hotel, only to discover once we arrived at the airport there is NO shuttle service. Plentiful taxis available however. I would definitely stay here again!
