Daytona Beach Resort & Conference Center is a unique condo-hotel. It is definitely one of the nicest. On a par with The Plaza Resort & Spa.

The author did not tag me in the response, and, actually, I do not know whether there was a response.I wanted to go back and read other comments but for the life of me, I coudn't...
