The hotel is a very good choice for South Beach. The front of the hotel is on Collins Dr and the rear of the hotel is on Ocean Dr. It is located just North of Lummus Park. You can walk along Lummus Park to all of the best restaurants and clubs. Once at the hotel, a car is not necessary... More

Love the hotel! Also loved David with the beach service. We had chairs and towels incl with our stay and he really took care of us. Only 1 negative to say, the lobby bar service was atrocious. Bartenders were slow, inattentive, rude and complete lack of personality. Not sure who is hiring them since all then them have the same... More

Lovely rooftop terrace room but the following problems encountered that I wouldn't expect from a $500 a night property 1) Unable to connect to wifi from room (424), had to stand outside front door or go upstairs on roof terrace 2) Bar in the 'Breezeway' plagued with Mosquitos, surely some controls could have been used? Bitten to pieces! 3) Hot... More

A fabulous hotel. From the time we checked in to the time we checked out, this hotel was excellent. When we arrived, the person at the front said our room was not ready so we left our luggage and had some lunch. By that time our room was ready. Robin at the concierge counter was very helpful as was the... More

A great location on Collins Ave. My only complaint would be that my bed was a bit too firm for my taste, otherwise, it was a five star experience. I did not eat in the restaurant or use the massage service. The pool is small but very nice. The hotel offers two free beach chairs and one umbrella. A third... More

This place is not one of the flashy, visible Sobe hotels, so you may overlook it, but it is really nice. It's a new building so doesn't have the Deco history but I think they make up for it with excellent service, cleanliness, nice rooms. Go for the Penthouse rooms, they have 2 levels of terrace, with a jacuzzi on... More
