"excellent hotel but did not like the pressure to b"
We were pressured to attend a 1 1/2 hour talk which would have pressured us to buy timeshare or condo. After telling the marketing lady we were not interested, we received a phone call the next day again asking us to attend the talk. Then, two other people asked us to go to the talk!!! Other than that, everything was excellent!!
The hotel staff are exceptional and the property itself -- location, layout, room design -- is high quality. The only negative was the view from the oceanfront rooms: overlooks the HVAC rooftop units of the pool bar and adjacent buildings. Still, a small blip on an otherwise unblemished screen.
A beautiful small hotel, with personal touches that helped make my stay very enjoyable. Exceptionally clean and comfortable room, quiet location in heart of busy strip. Room temperature comfortable, bed soft. Water taxi stops at hotel when requested. Would highly recommend this hotel, and would definitely stay here again.

We stayed at the Drift Hotel in Nov. 2014. The hotel must have been renovated this summer, everything was like it looked on the pictures of the hotel, big bed, lots of pillows, white blinds, dark floor. Parking was available in front of the hotel. The staff was very kind, always open for a little chat. The hotel is located close to the beach, it's only a short walk. Also, there's a stop for the water taxi closeby. In the evenings, we walked to restaurants and bars in the area. The hotel staff gave us a map with all the important stuff, it was very convenient. The hotel breakfast was similar to the breakfast we received in most other US hotels: A lot of food and drinks came in plastic containers. If the space of the kitchen allows it, it would be great if some of the plastic containers could be replaced with glass in the future, makes the juice taste better :) If in the area again, we'll definitely pick this hotel.
