We loved the few days we spent here. It was relaxing, the staff was friendly and the beach chairs and umbrellas were a well needed amenity in the Florida sun. We stayed in a suite on the top floor and had a hot tub and bar of our own on a large patio overlooking the ocean - very private with... More

This hotel's lobby and public areas have a very nightclub-style feel, with blue light and aluminum walls and electro-lounge music playing. The rooms are spacious and have a wet bar with barstools and a sitting area with couch and armchair in addition to the bed area and bathroom. These rooms would be good if you were in town with friends... More

My husband and I stayed here on 2 separate occasions during 2009; 3 nights in February/March and 2 nights in November. The first stay was fabulous and we had absolutely no complaints, which is why we returned in November. Unfortunately, this second stay was not so good. The room we were allocated had an unusual exterior walkway to get to... More

Nice hotel, a short walk from South Beach and several restaurants. We stayed there in november and had a room on the pool level, the stay was pleasant enough, the rooms were well equiped if a little quirky. Due to renovations the bar and restaurant wereclosed. The thing that tarnished the stay was being charged for use of beach loungers... More
