I like a "boutiquie" hotel and this was just that. The antiques and unique atmosphere was a nice distraction from the sameness that we have come to accept with the chain hotels. There are few amenities but the hotel staff is very kind and helpful. I felt like I was in Europe. As long as you are self sufficient you... More

Visit dorado resturant . Excellent spanish food. We only stayed for two nights . At night we would leave the windows open . If you want... More

My wife and I love funky hotels and the St Michel meets that criteria, but it's on the edge of too funky from a maintenence persective. The tub was rusty in 3 places. The bed was small - a full size, not even a queen. AC is just so-so. Curtains don't darken the room much at all. On the plus... More

My sister and I stayed here for two nights the beginning of May. Our room and bathroom were very clean. The beds were comfortable. We loved the antiques that were all over the hotel including the original Otis elevator that must be operated by the staff. Our room was at the front of the hotel and even though we were... More

First I want to clarify that the hotel amenities listed on Tripadvisor no longer exist. At the moment there is no restaurant in the hotel (though a Peruvian one is in the works), no room service, no lounge, no free breakfast -- in fact, no breakfast at all. (What there is is very good complimentary coffee from seven until noon,... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here one night before we went on a cruise. The hotel is very charming, with antiques in the rooms and an old-fashioned elevator that requires a member of the staff to operate it. There is a parking garage right up the street, which charges $14 a night. Since we were there on a Saturday night,... More

We stayed at Hotel Place St. Michel for one night in January while on a day trip to the Miami area with some friends. We agree with the other reviewers that the hotel is charming in its own way -- decorated with "antiques", pleasant and obliging staff, a bit off the beaten track but within easy walking distance of all...

Lots of antiques and very quiet. No room service. Rather funky but we liked the place and will return. Very attentive staff that appreciates you staying with them. Very clean. Dining room may open soon.
