Flew in from Atlanta to connect in Miami. Our flight out of Miami got cancelled, so we booked here on a whim for a one night stay after we had been in the airport all night trying to get our flights situated. In hindsight, I would have rather stayed at the airport all day/night. We arrived at the hotel from...

Valet service was fast/efficient. Location was A+. Check in was fast and easy. Ocean view was A+. I took three kids and we stayed in 10th floor ocean view. No hassles. Shops in the basement, Turkish bath, value.

I booked this place on a vacation rental website, and was a little leery that it was too good to be true. Upon arrival in the beautiful Miami beach neighborhood, and driving up to the gorgeous building, I was just waiting for disappointment. But nope--it was so great!! Our room was clean and comfortable, and the private beach and the...

You might be tempted to stay at this hotel because of the price, but you absolutely do NOT want to stay here. With very few exceptions, the service was terrible, the room was worn down, and the food was mediocre at best. The single exception was the staff at the outdoor bar/grill because they tried hard to be helpful and...

Terrible terrible terrible! Never experienced worse service than this. Workers are rude, valet takes literally up to an hour sometimes longer to bring the car and to get back in the hotel. Need renovations like 10 years ago! Will never stay here again or recommend this place. And I usually don't leave reviews but I had to make an exception...

Found this property through MiaVac .com and unlike many reviewed in this building, it was very clean and comfortable. The location on "millionaires row" was amazing, with great access to the beach and a large pool. We did notice there were not many lounge chairs available, and although we had beach chairs stored in our closet for our use there...

If you can stay somewhere else, do it. I stayed for ONE night and it was the worst night ever! They can't keep their word, they lied about allowing 12 people within two rooms. Kicked everyone out before midnight. Rooms were small, nothing like in the pictures. Security was a pest. Music in the rooms ON LOW is not allowed,...

Let's start with the positive: beautiful beach, very kind valet parking staff and stunning ocean views from our room on the 17th floor. Ok, that's it. The common areas are incredibily dirty (as if the hotel were under construction), the pool area is nice but there aren't enough sun beds and of course they don't provide you with beach towels....

First off, this is not a hotel, as we found out. It is a condo association....they have various management companies inside, we stayed with DESIGN SUITES... There is also Newport and a few other ones. There are also other rooms/suites that are privately rented out. Front desk - they were ok.....after you get off a long flight and finally arrive...
