I stayed here for one night only because the night was non-refundable when i purchased early March. (If i would've read earlier reviews, I may have not booked this hotel at all) For starters I requested early check in because I knew I would arrive before 3pm. As I expected, No rooms available. So we placed our luggage in the...

I was kind of expecting breakfast to be complimentary. When I came downstairs, I found that they were trying to charge me $16 for the "best value" breakfast buffet. They also had a happy hour special the night before where they gave me a "free" $1 drink, but turned around and charged me $8 for a beer. It seems like...

Hello there Sebastian S, We take our guests comments very serious, and thank you for sharing yours with us! We apologize that you expected breakfast to be included. We do not advertise complimentary breakfast. Also, as is the policy in most South Beach hotels, breakfast is not included in the room. We do have a terrific café that is open...

I would rate my experience with this hotel 2.5 stars. The service was friendly but they didn't go out of their way in any way to help us. The nicest person I met was the gentleman who held our luggage for a few hours on our last day. I'll start with the outside appearance. It's nothing spectacular. There's construction on...

A trip to South Beach is always expected to be a great time. When your hotel staff goes out of their way to make you feel special though, it just takes your vacation to an entirely different level. Every staff member I interacted with, Mari, Shirley, Guy, Loana, Jean Carlo (JC), Alain and Gilma, all treated me with a distinct...

We stayed here for two nights late April, we were upgraded to a suite at check in, definitely was a great surprise to us! The hotel is beautiful, the staff is very nice and friendly. Don't judge a book by its cover, the whole street is in construction. Nice big pool, the place is huge. Modern look to it, it...

We took two rooms here for 4 nights as part of our vacation. Overall it is a nice place but nothing outstanding. It's not cheap but it isn't expensive for Miami Beach. It isn't up to the standard of what most would expect for an American hotel but it is one of the older buildings close to the Art Deco...

Found this place at the last minute on trivago. It has good ratings and the staff was nice. Here is what was not nice: hookers!. I kid you not. When we walked in, one was arguing with the front desk and swearing up a storm because he wouldn't give her a key. Then my son and I had the pleasure...

This was a fairly average hotel. Room was clean, but plain. No hair dryer, but the bath products smelled divine! (citrus scent). We took part in the Happy Hour out on the patio and the bartender there gave us a great recommendation for dinner that we thoroughly enjoyed! (Monty's Sunset).. I don't know that I'd stay here for an extended...
