Breakfast buffet was a bit too simple, not enough choices. We expected some eggs...also they have no gluten free bread options. I... More

We are a group of ten staying here overnight on our way to Key West. The location is good and right on Ocean Ave facing the South Beach. The steaks in the restaurant are very juicy and tasty particularly the American Wagyu. After dinner strolling on the beach is an exceptional experience. The bars on the same road are just... More

At the North end of Ocean Drive you will find a sanctuary that feels like an oasis miles away from the chaotic nature just blocks away on South Beach. If you want to be in the middle of it all (if you can still call SoBe "it"), but be able to get away at the end of the night without... More

First visit and it was beyond my expectations. The staff was exceptional. Jordon from BTK went out if her way to make our stay memorable. Even the housekeeping staff was amazing, especially Maria who went above and beyond to accomadate me. Hendrick at the front desk topped it off by being so helpful at checkout. The ambiance at the hotel... More

Its a small hotel in Ocean Dr. Part of SLH chain, the location is great if you want to be in the middle of the beach. The hotel is nice but very tiny rooms and bathrooms. Many options in Downtown with better prices Nd higher standard. Very good service though.
