close walk to beach and to Lincoln road. Very nice and upscale for south beach. Not Ritz but comparable to Mariott Hyatt etc - this is a boutique. Generally very very pleased with the hotel. only small complaint is that parking is in a garage about 2 blocks away - no valet is provided. This is a bit of hassle... More

Well located, close to the beach and to many rest/bars, the hotel has a discreet art deco architecture renovated and well preserved. Rooms and service are average/good, medium size pool with a pleasant bar/rest for a snach or a drink. The only problem is that this hotel is part of a portuguese chain and full of portuguese and brazilian people:... More

Nice experience, good breakfast, good, pool, awesome bed, excelent location, for the first time in Miami, I was not disapointed. They have some sort of agreement with the chairs service on the beach, that gave us huge discounts. And they speak portuguese!!

The white paint and fresh look is appealing and makes this hotel look attractive. The rooms are fresh and look clean (a closer look and you will see this is not the case).
