    Do all the rooms in the tower have kitchens? I want a king room with a baby/ocean view but don't care about a kitchen. So confused about room categories.

    Not all tower rooms have kitchens. Their are several different configurations on the bay side.

    Hi, we're very excited to come stay at this hotel for our summer vacation. How is the beach for swimming? We have a six year old. The water in the video looked a little murky but could be the camera? Also, how easy is it to get to the ocean beach? Easily walk with a small child? Are there rooms that are "renovated?" to choose from? I'm seeing rooms need "updates". Thanks so much! Can't wait!

    Just to add to sunflower's response, the store and restaurant strip also includes a CVS and numerous taphouse and other everyday type restaurants. We also shopped at Ralph's and found the location to be very convenient.
