Nice big flatscreen tv on...

One of the most photographed hotels in Miami. You can sit at the bar/restaurant tables outside and people watch (an experience!). The rooms are small but clean (you won't be in the room long enough for this to bother you) , the beds are comfy and the staff friendly. It is full of party people on a weekend so you...

We came here on a friends recommendation at the beginning of April. Since it was cold and awful in NYC we were happy for the warmth and Miami sunshine. We arrived at the hotel and were happy that we could early check in, although it's weird if you are on the first floor you have to hike your bags up...
