Great hotel - the vibe is upbeat, current, and fun. The staff are incredibly nice - reception, servers, housekeeping - everyone. Each room is unique. Food is good - complimentary hot breakfast, wonderful location - directly across from the beach. Really close to shopping (one street over). Close to bars and restaurants (and they have on in the building). Beach... More

Great location right across Ocean Dr from the beach, great night life location with bars and restaurants to walk to. Stayed in the Zebra room, very fun decor and great view onto the street and beach to see all the night life.

This is a boutique style hotel and each room is themed. I would suggest you review the hotel website to see if the room you want is available. I stayed on the third floor (304),which is a double twin room - the theme was aluminum. The bathroom was older and needs a little work, but the room met my needs... More

Stayed here over the week of July fourth, therefore the area was quite crowded at all times. Some could argue that the hotel is a little dated but I didn't mind since it was spotless. The people at the front desk were always helpful when I had questions. Restaurant staff was pleasant too. Location wise, the hotel is close to... More

One of the nicest hotels I've ever stayed in - the rooms were lovely, beach towels and chairs available for use, free breakfast and free cocktails during happy hour. The hotel staff were very helpful in organising tours and transport throughout the stay. Definitely will not hesitate staying here again when I return to Miami!
