Our flight was to arrive at MIA at 6am on a Wednesday. Our Expedia confirmation note had mentioned that the hotel provided free shuttles between MIA and the Hotel. So we called the day before at 11pm from the departure airport to ask for the shuttle timings and pick up point. A man answered that the first pick up of... More

My husband and I stayed here during Pride weekend, the hotel was great! After reading other reviews, I was a little worried about the noise from the lobby, so I brought earplugs just in case. We didn't need them, we were able to sleep through the night with no problem. It is more of a party atmosphere, which is what... More

This place was an absolute nightmare and I am not even over exaggerating the word nightmare. I cringe at the thought of this place. First off the room was so small I still can't get over it. Second the toilet still had a pee stain as soon as we got in the room. Are the housekeepers that lazy?? And thirdly... More

Stayed here with my best friend. We're both 21. We were meeting friends in South Beach and wanted a place to sleep for one night. The location of this hotel is absolutely perfect. Close to the ocean, shopping, and bars/restaurants. The hotel lobby is cute, as pictured. The room was clean. The beds were fine. The bathroom door didn't lock... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at this hotel for one night! It was awful! First off, we had to drive to the valet to have our car parked (literally took an hour even though it was one block away), get to the room and there was an overbearing smell of bleach. Given the week we went was spring break (nothing... More

Only positive for this hotel is location. Happy Hour starts at 7PM and people do not leave the bar area until 5AM. If you get a room on the first floor all you hear are doors slamming and loud racket from the bar! We asked if we could check out early do to noise levels but were advised we would... More
