“perfect location, great service.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2012

This was our first trip ever to Miami, thanks to the beacon it won't be our last. We were checked in early by one of their best receptionist Christian. The room was beautiful although no view. The food was great at their own restaurant " The Place". We will definitely stay there again.

We stayed here for one night in March 2012. The check-in desk staff were exceptional. We were early, but they got us into a room. We happened to accidentally leave a blackberry in the room when we checked out, and when we called they found it in 5 min and overnighted it to us. We had no problems at all with the valet, despite being on the busiest road in all of South Beach. They 100% have their act together.

The room was small, but that's to be expected. The bathroom was smaller. Still, we weren't in the room much so it wasn't an issue. Would I want to stay here for more than 2 nights, or spend a lot of time in the room? No. Probably not good for families, either because the 2 of us were pretty much stepping on each other already. Not a place where you'd say, "Hey, let's go back to the room and chill out for 2 hrs with our 6 friends."

They have cookies and snacks and stuff on their second floor lobby, which was a nice touch. It's a very almost Key West vibe more than a South Beach vibe, if that makes sense. The elevator is REALLY small/slow, but you can take the stairs to the higher floors so we just did that all the time and then didn't have to wait quite so much. Great for our purposes overall.

This is a nice hotel. Rooms are very clean and come with beach chairs. The beach is directly across the street from Miami Beach. Right on Ocean Drive in the center of the Art Deco district. Can walk everywhere. We stayed the day and night before a cruise out of the Port of Miami. The cab fare from the hotel to the Port of Miami was just about $22.00. The room came with a full breakfast. Great value for the location

Being in the heart of SoBe has it's advantages and disadvantages. You've got to know what you're getting into. Across the street from the beach, lots of activity and people watching, and near tons of shopping. But it's very noisy (get a room facing the courtyard), busy and crowded. The hotel was a grand dame of it's time. It's a bit older now, but still has the art deco charm. The hotel service and staff were fantastic. Smiles, hellos, and always willing to help. Not so much from the restaurant staff, however, where getting a coffee took 20 min. We were in a small, dark room, but apparently got the last room in the hotel, so I don't fault them for that. Most of the rooms in the art deco hotels are small (from a by-gone era). The room was clean, but the beds were only doubles and excessively soft. Not my best sleep, but hey, after a king-sized margarita on Ocean, do you care?

Room Tip: Rooms on Ocean are very loud. Get a higher-up room, or one on the courtyard.

Great location, room was small but had evrything needed. Large shower comfy bed. Had an ocean view room, it was great. Can be noisy at night but if you want location, location this is the place to stay. Staff were friendly and helpful. Beach chairs and towels are a great inclusion. Would stay here agin without hesitation.
