We just send 2 nights at the Sense in South Beach. What you have to realize is that the Sense offers almost no services. There is no bar/restaurant, so like for breakfast you have to go someplace else. Which would be ok, because there are a lot of places around. But all the time we were there, we saw only... More

This is a great Miami hotel if you are on a budget but have high-end taste. I would totally recommend, with only one complaint (ok, 2) - thin walls and VERY loud doors. They just need new hinges or something like that, so they don't slam. The elevator also has a loud beep when it comes to your floor, which... More

A new(ish) hotel with no facilities (ie. own bar or restaurant) but located on the art deco "strip" in Miami Beach where there are no end of different bars and restuarants to suit all tastes and wallets. Our airport taxi man had an initial problem finding it as it was not in his directory but as it is on a... More

I stayed at this hotel during Art Basel after receiving a great last minute deal on booking.com (150/night). The hotel was bright and inviting and I checked in at 2 am due to flight, rental car and roadwork delays. Check in was quick and painless and there was a young couple inquiring about availability being quoted a rate that was... More

This hotel IS very moden, new, and clean BUT VERY Stark, plain, quiet, and understimulating. The hotel lobby is much larger than it needs to be, it would be much better if they filled the space with a bar - or anything to stimulate the senses. I will admit, Alex gave amazing customer service, but when that guy had the... More

We booked Sense South Beach after reading some reviews and we weren't disappointed. People tend to visit South beach for the weather and the nightlife and we enjoyed both immensely. We were actively encouraged by Alex, who is so lovely, to stay out as late as possible! We arrived Saturday teatime, sort of unpacked and decided to get a bit... More

On fourth street which is one below where the night life starts. The hotel is at the start of a residential area. Large clean rooms the hotel has no bar or resturant so is really quiet but is only one block away from as many bars and resturants as you could want. The pool is small

I only became aware of the Sense South Beach Hotel after a disasterous experience at another south beach hotel (Royal Palm). It turned out to be a great deal and an unusually new and nice hotel on the beach. First, the service was excellent. I lived in Miami for three years and had no expectations, but was pleasantly surprised by... More

Overall this hotel is nice and our stay was pleasant. A large part of the appeal here is that it is a new and therefore clean and modern hotel. Aside from that it is very basic with little pizazz. It seems to be missing a wow factor but it definitely has great potential. Right now there is no restaurant or... More
