Had a confirmed reservation booked here for July 29th. Was contacted by the property this week via email letting me know that the hotel will not be open due to an unforeseen development delay. Did not specify an updated opening date. I believe this new property was originally scheduled to be open in June. Was given a reservation for the same dates/rate at the Epicurean instead. Will be excited to check out The Current once it finally opens.

As a Titanium member, debating between this The Current and Westshore Grand for a stay with the misses this weekend.

Any views from those that have stayed at either/both?

thanks!

I stayed here twice in late 2020 and early 2021 and thought it was nice, particularly for the price at the time ($100-120). I was upgraded to some sort of studio/junior suite with a reasonably separate sitting area. Breakfast was great. Nice vibe in the lobby. Would stay again

Ended up staying there for 4 nights (Wed-Sat). Here is my quick take: great location, service, decor, pool, beach, bars, rooms. Everything was excellent.

Only one drawback is the location. Since it is located right next to the airport (which is good), that puts the hotel at least 15-20 minutes away from almost everything else (restaurants, shopping, downtown, sports arenas etc.,). Also, parking is a premium @$23/day Valet only

All said, no regrets. Will do it again!
