Lovely hotel, lovely location!
Posted Jul 2, 2015 on Hotels
We stayed for two nights at the Hotel Astor and wish we could have stayed longer. The room was very spacious, though a teeny bit dated. We had a suite which had a tremendous amount of storage and hooks for hanging wet towels/bathing suits/etc. Our children loved the indoor pool. The location is directly across from the beach, restaurants, and shops, which was very convenient. The street to get to these spots is a bit busy, but cars recognize and obey crosswalks. We rented an umbrella/chairs for a small price across the street for the day, which was perfect.
The hotel staff was very accommodating. They called cabs for us upon request and made check out/check in quite easy. The complimentary breakfast was pretty extensive and the waitstaff was very professional and friendly. If you are coming from the train station, you will need a cab, or be prepared to walk 3.5 miles or so, though it is a fairly direct route. Cabs run between $10-$15.
Overall, would definitely stay again!
