Rated 4 out of 5 by Jackie27 Hotel location
Although the hotel is overshadowed by highrise condos, it is niely removed from the trinket shops and minigolf tourist strips. However there was no shopping or restaurants within walking distance.

This location was outstanding. I would expect a few more amenities from a hotel that calls itself a resort. Yes it was a conference that was hosted here, but it still lacked that something extra.

Really very accomodating staff.. Room was a decent size with great views. Breakfast Buffet not worth it. Bathroom on the small side. No Spa. Clean Hotel again cannot say enough about the staff.

Relaxing by the pool, sitting under the cabanas on the beautiful beach, hot tub time at sunset and amazing breakfast buffet and pub. We would definitely come again! Sweet staff and lots of fun!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Asag My Spring Break Stay
This is my 3rd stay at this hotel. The last two times I have booked with points as I am a SPG member. Last year I was put in what I think is the worst possible room I could be put in. To make sure this didn't happen again, I booked a couple of months out and called the hotel twice to ensure I was not put in a room that was on the same side as the year before. Guess what, I arrived and was put in the exact same location of the hotel! I also had reserved a refrigerator and was told when we arrived that the hotel was sold out and we may not get a frige. The hotel did find us one. My question is this - why would I use my hard earned hotel points at this hotel or any Starwood hotel if I am going to continue to be put in the worst location of the hotel? I tried in every way to prevent this from happening on this trip. There were even notes on my reservation with my request. Can the hotel not reserve a room for a Preferred gold member based on two request? I even offered to pay for an upgrade but the hotel was sold out. The hotel ended up moving us after two nights so they did meet the needs eventually but it was not ideal to move in the middle of our vacation.

Needs some updating of rooms. Hotel built in mid 70's. Carpets in hallways worn. Replacement of carpets in rooms above us started promptly at 7 AM each day providing an unwelcome wake up call.

Overall very happy with our stay. The location is ideal (away from busy are of Pier 60 but yet nearby to enjoy there). Nice pool, private beach, nice and clean rooms.

It was a very enjoyable visit to the Sheraton. The food was excellent and the staff in each dining area were excellent. I've put on 7 pounds since my visit. Thank the staff for a nice visit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Paulie59 lousy bed
if the bed we had(a king size) was any mushier, we'd have been better off sleeping on the beach. you guys need much better pillows. they felt like they were stuffed with flattened Kleenex.

Mattress is too soft. I felt that I was lowered into the bed. Pillows gave me a stiff neck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by upsmartin Overall a wonderful property
We stay at this hotel on average every two years. It seems every time we come back some major upgrade/improvement has taken place. This time the lobby and front desk had been changed to a very modern and open concept. The fine dining restaurant (Rusty's) and the lounge/bar off of the lobby have also been remodeled and upgraded in the last several years. We love the pool area with a beatifully maintained swimming pool and good sized hot tub. A pool area cafe and separate bar make spending all the time we wanted to out by the pool very convenient. The long walk out to the beach is a slight inconvenience. Perhaps a future upgrade to the facility will include a boardwalk. This year we learned that the hotel rooms are systematically being upgraded. We stayed in one of the new rooms and it was wonderful. The king size bed was very comfortable and provided an excellent night's sleep. One of the small changes that make a major impact is the amount and location of electrial outlets, including "device" friendly USB charging ports. Few and difficult to access electrical outlets in a room has become more and more of a problem any more as the numbers of devices we have needing daily recharging increases (I am up to three such devices). When traveling with my spouse outlets can become scarce quickly. Not a problem in the newly upgraded rooms at this property. Plenty of outlets and charging ports at convenient spots in the room. All of the food we ate at the hotel was excellent. All staff that we came in contact with were friendly, efficient and helpful. My only regret was that we did not have two or three more days to stay at this property.

Fabulous resort and ecellen service but i would stongly suggest a golf cart shuttle from the pool area to the beach area running all day long because it is just too long of a hike walking.

The hotel clean, the staff is very friendly. I was disappointed in regards to the fact the beach was very far away. Also, the fact that Wi-fi was not free and that they charged for cribs.
