First of all - I must commend the office staff for helping with a mix up with our reservation through Expedia - they were diligent about fixing the problem. The staff was wonderful......as for the hotel --- This hotel -- though located right on the beach was a big disappointment. Where to begin - the phone in the room did not work and we asked the front desk to repair it 3 times and it was never done. The safe in the room did not work. The water in the shower was never warm - we complained about that also, but nothing was ever checked or done so we took cool showes every day brrrr. The hot tub was empty and in dis-repair and the pool was dirty. We were surprised to see that the hotel was only about 1/2 full and it was SPRING BREAK -- Now we can see why!! When we first read reviews on this hotel we did not see anything bad, however, now, after returning home we see all the bad reviews and BELIEVE ME - THEY ARE TRUE!!
The owners of this hotel need to take a good long look at the place and begin some updating and renovatins if they want to keep customers coming back.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Steeped in pop culture history; Deauville Beach Resort is not only a present day getaway favorite, it is also historically an all-star Hollywood destination. Its most historic moment came in 1964 when Ed Sullivan brought his celebrated "Really Big Show" to the hotel's Napoleon Ballroom featuring what was to become one of the biggest music groups in history --The Beatles. Deauville Beach Resort's history of glitz and glamour has been long in the making before the memorable 1964 presence of The Beatles. The hotel was a favorite of the 1950's and 60's stars such as Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr., Dean Martin, Joey Bishop and Tony Bennett, to just name a few. They were attracted to the Deauville for both: professional and personal reasons. Holding packed-house performances at the famed Napoleon Ballroom and at the same time enjoying one of America's finest beach destinations. In 1957, the Deauville Beach Resort was reconstructed following the MiMo architecture aesthetics. It received the "Hotel of the Year" award and gave rise to the jewel it is today. Its doors reopened to a fully booked season of glamour, which set forth the coming of a new era for the Deauville. One of the jet-setting events at the hotel and Miami Beach's history was the creation of the "Cavalcade of Stars" show in 1959. Created by hotelier Morris Lansburg, guests from various neighboring hotels were transported to the Deauville for an unforgettable evening of all-star entertainment. Some of the world's most loved stars performed in the Napoleon Ballroom during these so called "rolling parties." Stars featured in the lineup included Red Buttons, Lonesome George Gobel, Judy Garland, Louis Armstrong, Sophie Tucker, The Ritz Brothers, Connie Francis and Tony Bennett. ... more less
