My wife and I stayed at the Illusion for 3 nights in late May of 2009. We were drawn to this hotel due to the location. We wanted to stay close to 5th Avenue but not on 5th ave due to noise concerns. This hotel is close to everything. The staff was friendly and our room was satisfactory and clean.... More

This hotel was in a perfect location. The beach was down the block and the staff was very helpful. Violeta at the front desk/bar was wonderful. It was a group of 12 from NY and we had a great time. The beach club associated with the hotel had very comfortable lounge mattresses with pillows but the service at the beach... More
