Wonderful staff makes up for some wear
We were here for a festival that takes place on the grounds right next to the festival so there were a few friends staying at the hotel with us which was really fun. One thing to note is that if you pay extra for a "sea view" room, you will be facing the festival and will not being going to sleep until the last band of the night is finished which some nights may be at 4am. I've stayed at this AC before, and I have to state that it seems that it's become a little worn this year. The bathrooms look like they need a bit of updating - I could see the wear around and under the sink. The closets don't really make much sense - they could be designed better with more room. In fact now that I mention it the whole room could be laid out better in general. The towels seem a little thin, less luxurious, and even the amenities - I don't remember the toiletries being a no-name brand before. The lobby once had a light fragrance, now is outrageously overwhelming like a person who overdid their cologne. I've never rented a car before when I stayed here, but we did this time and found that the driveway to parking only fits one car, which can be rather dodgy. But we never had an issue finding a parking spot which was appreciated. I still liked staying at the AC however, and that is because their staff is SO NICE. I've stayed at the hotel across the street and the one on the same block and the people who work at the AC are by far the nicest and most accommodating. That really goes a long way.

The thermostat was not adjustable and the room became unbearably warm. Management opened the window for some comfort but street noise was intense.

Could have been better
The hotel is beautiful. It is very modern and very clean. Close to the beach and we had a nice sea view. Pool area and restaurant area are very trendy. Our issue was that outside of the hotels entrance was a festival with music blasting. We called at 8pm and were assured the music was only until 10. At 1:30am it was still blasting. I wish more information had been provided. And offering to move my room would have been more appropriate at 8pm not when I called back at 12am.
