Stayed here last week on a business trip. Check in quite quick. Stayed in one of the renovated rooms on the 6th floor (Ocean front, cornerroom). New colors, look fresh. Only thing they forgot to replace was the bathtub. Looks like it dates from the 50's.
Staff great as always. Lot of them have been working there for the past 8 years at least. which I think is a good sign. Breakfast buffet is one of the best you will find. Live cooking, great variety of breads, fresh fruit, cheese, meats, etc. When having breakfast; find yourself a table on the terrace. Quick service. Bar at the pool is nice. Had dinner in the restaurant once - lot of choices.
Is about a 20 minute walk to Lincoln Road. Taxi is about US$ 8. Gym has basic machines (with water and clean towels). Only comment would be that rooms can be quite noisy - but neighbor was one of the business colleagues - not a family with young children.
All together; this is one of the best value for money hotels in SoBe.
