I've stayed at Cecil 3 times before and always loved it. The hotel is well maintained, nice friendly staff, a lot of history there and good food. But unfortunately its one of the few remaining hotels that still allows indoor smoking in public areas. The reception had many people smoking and the second floor conference room had many people smoking inside and outside the room, so whenever we had to take the stairs or go to the lobby, it was frustrating specially since both myself and my wife are allergic to cigarette smoke. I would urge the hotel management to reconsider their smoking policy.

Norfolk, Nebraska65 contributions6 helpful votes
I stayed here with a travel group and had a wonderful time. The hotel reminded me of the old hotels of Europe and it was very well kept up. Our room was small, but very clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We ate breakfast and dinner there and the food was quite good with a nice variety. The small lounge was cozy and the staff there was super-friendly. They advertised live music, but it was only karaoke when I was there. The hotel sits right on the Mediterranean, so the location was perfect. There was some renovation going on, so our balcony was full of building materials - which did not allow us to enjoy the view. Just a couple blocks from the local shopping district. I recommend this hotel!
