The hotel location can't be beaten, right by South Beach with all the shops down the road. The room is a bit dark and could do with more lighting but it was always clean. Bathroom was a good size and well lit so we used to get ready in there.
The corridors are a bit tired looking but the decor is quite dark so might be better if it was a bit lighter also there was no ventilation in the corridor so at times could be a bit musty. Not a problem but just a minor issue.
The resort fee of $15 includes happy hour between 7-8 so the cost is easily covered by this. Also covers beach towels and wifi in the lobby - would be great to have wifi in the room. I would recommend this hotel for younger travellers as it's definitely geared around this. Wouldn't stay there with a family as there is music until the early hours and most of the guests are here to party rather than relaxing at the hotel.
All of the staff are excellent and extremely helpful. Gave excellent recommendations on where to go and can get passes so you get reduced club entrance fees. Would stay here again as is a reasonable price for what you get.
