South Beach is a beautiful area... charming, historical, lively, vintage. so much more. BUT THIS HOTEL IS ABSOLUTELY NOT 4 STARS NOT EVEN CLOSE!!! This is a fair assessment of the hotel, I have stayed at hostels up to The Ritz... I understand value and I understand luxury. Having said that... again, this is a fair assessment of the hotel....

We booked the hotel and we had a special price deal. It was supposed to be 4 stars... We arrived at the hotel and you enter the hotel through the bar/restaurant where you have staff every day thnking that you are a new restaurant/bar customer which is annoying every day. The room was designed in marine style which was quite... More

We choose this hotel due to the price. It seemed the best value for money on Ocean Drive. It is directly opposite Miami beach, location can not be faulted, its right in the middle of the hustle and bustle of Ocean Drive. However the quality is reflected in the price. The welcome we received was fantastic, check in staff were... More

A great hotel if you like being right at the centre of nightlife in Miami and you want to be close to the beach. The hotel is quirky with each room following a particular design. Rooms are adequate in size and my bathroom was nice and large. The aircon is great but don't use the overhead fans...my room vibrated at... More
