    I worked at Destination Hotels full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Beautiful property with lots of potential and great employee benefits.

    Cons

    Inexperienced front office management. Inept and out of touch with their team. Their turn around is out of this world for good reason. They hang on to people who don't deserve to be there and get rid of anyone who highlights their shortcomings. Avoid this place like the plague!

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I worked at Destination Hotels full-time

    Pros

    If you work on boardwalk, lots of babes and friendly people, plus great atmostphere. If not on boardwalk, it is not so special, it would almost seem like a giant neighborhood with all the houses.

    Cons

    The beach was eroding away when I was there, but I think it is being fixed.
