I'm always in Miami. I definitely feel like a local more than a tourist. This wasn't my go-to spot...but it definitely is now. Additionally, I refrain from writing reviews...but this spot, I voluntarily & wholeheartedly wanted to write a review. Our stay was from the last week of July into August. The hotel is very attractive. It gives off a... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Sanctuary August 25-30 and had a lovely experience. The staff are very friendly and helpful- especially Maria at the front desk! She told us all about the "freebie" taxi that is free for your use during your stay and will take you to any location you'd like in South Beach. Just remember to... More

hotel has good style and great front desk staff. Rooms and building could be a little more up to date. Some leaks, water marks, tile discoloration. That was all fine with us - had a good stay. Only complaint was heavy use of artificial fragrance in the rooms. May be an anomaly that day, but was present in 3 rooms... More

It was a good place to lay our heads. The hotel met all of our basic needs and for what it lacked, we could find at the Gale or Bentley, which it is associated with. The text messaging guest service was a great feature, and the staff was friendly.

Other then that and the rooftop pool being a joke...the stay was good. The guest room was clean and the cleaning staffs were very... More

When checking in was provided with no info at all, I was handed my key and pointed to the direction of my room. Not told about beach access, breakfast, transport. Not helpful at all. Room was clean and great size

The rooms where modern and fresh. The roof pool was really small, I recommend the sister hotels pool instead! The location is ok, a small walk to the beach. Though you have to pay for the sun umbrella

Conveniently located within walking distance from the night life. Nice rooms, ask for a room with a couch if traveling as a part of party of three as there is only one queen bed. Great place for people who like to party.

I expected a 3.5-4 star hotel but the hotel was more a 2.5-3 star. Pool should not be advertised as a pool. Pleasant staff. Breakfast wasn't varied. There was nothing special about the hotel. I would not recommend
