Great location! Downfall was my ac in the room went out and I called twice for them to take care of it. Well that wasn't the case because they didn't fix it nor did they do anything to help me out. I had to sleep in a hot room sweating! They said to wait in the morning to talk to... More

Very helpful staff especially Juan Vargas who was so nice with us. The room was nice and big with a huge bathroom. The location is perfect in the middle of the Art Deco district, of course it's a bit noisy because of the clubs outside, but it's Miami Beach
