I was pleasantly surprised at how great this hotel was. No, it's not the Fountainbleu and its not super fancy, but they have done a great job restoring the lobby and making it artistically interesting. This is an older South Beach hotel located on the best part of South Beach-south of fifth. its AMAZING that you can stay in this... More

The place IS old, but for the price it was alright. We only needed the room for a place to sleep. The rooms are pretty small. We stayed on the second floor back hall, and it was quiet all night. The place smelled a little musky, but nothing too bad. Cleaning lady doesn't really do much cleaning, but the bed... More

Don't stay here. Very nice staff but the place is old and ugly. Beds and rooms are tiny. Read reviews AFTER we looked at room... Not "art deco"...just old. Hotels in Miami are ridiculously over priced. This was $135 on a Saturday night. Many other cities that might have been a typical rate...not Miami...we ended up paying $399 at another... More

So I stayed here for 3 nights. Since the moment I got here, all the carpeta were dirty and smelled, my room had a strange odor (which stayed for as long as I slept here),the sheets looked old, then I found hairy balls in my towels so I literally was scared to touch anything. Last but not least, I arrive... More

I traveled here just for an overnight stay, and chose this hotel because they were pet friendly. The location is fantastic. Room was small, and had some type of weird odor, which was odd, because there was tile floor. My biggest complaint, which was out of the control of the hotel itself, was the power went out at 2am and... More

The hotel is in a good location, the quieter end of Miami Beach and a short walk from the restaurants, bars and shops of Ocean Drive. Also a 3 minute walk from the beach. The hotel itself is a beautiful building but the rooms are slightly shabby and in need of an update. Reasonably clean, breakfast not great, staff ok.... More

The good thing about this hotel is the location (quiet but in a walking distance from the more lively part of Ocean Drive). But the hotel is old, the room needed to be updated, the AC was really noisy, the breakfast was poor, the bathroom incredibly small... It wasn't even cheap, cheaper than other hotels in Miami beach but not... More

This location is good if you want to be close to a beach access, within walking distance of the action, but far enough away that you can get some sleep if you want to. Beach and park are across the street as well as a Starbucks if you need to nurse your addiction. I stayed at this hotel after a... More
