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

This is a beautiful modern hotel. The room is absolutely beautiful, the bathroom beautiful, and the beds are very comfortable with memory foam and memory foam pillows (plus regular pillows if memory foam pillow is not your thing). The shower is very awesome too, one of those rain shower heads where the water comes on you from above. The only... More

I could not have asked for a better stay at the Sense South Beach. My sister and I booked the hotel shortly after its opening and was slightly nervous about a brand new hotel, but what we experienced on our stay far beat my expectations. The hotel itself was very modern. In great shape compared to the older Art Deco... More

I just got back from a trip to Florida with my girlfriend and cannot praise Sense South Beach enough. First impressions were of a new and cool hotel with modern and minimal entrance and foyer. The location is great, located very close to the beach and one block south of the 'busier' cafe and shopping roads. This gave the hotel... More

I highly reccommend this hotel! For a boutique hotel, the rooms are a nice size. I have been to south beach many times and have stayed in various hotels ranging from the Whitelaw, to Hotel Victor, to the Ritz Carlton. Sense is my new hotel of choice when visiting south beach. The location is great, as its right on Ocean... More

Sense is a great choice for the South of Fifth (SoFi) area of Miami Beach, which is itself a good choice of neighborhoods 'cause it's far enough away from the madding crowds of Ocean Drive. Proprietor Alex is extremely helpful and knowledgeable, and will steer you away from tourist traps and toward cool places like Big Pink. Our room was... More

A brand new hotel within walking distance to the beach and deco district. The customer service was outstanding, the best I have ever come across. Rooms were very clean and energy efficient. The bed was like falling asleep in heaven. A little pricy, but it was because we were staying over the weekend. Watch out for Valet parking, they slap... More
