Traveled as part of a group and for two afternoons a "pool party" was held at this hotel. The bar was gouging guests for drinks $15.00 for a daquiri in a six ounce cup. The pool's filters, if it had any, were not working so all kinds of crap were floating in the pool. A number of the lounge chairs... More

Naomi had the best customer service ever. She made our stay worth every penny. The hotel was clean and nice in the center of south beach close to everything. I would definitely stay there again and again. Highly recommend.

This is right where you'll want to be, on South Beach. It's close enough that all of South Beach is in walking distance, but not in the middle of the noise so you can sleep easily at night. The hotel is nice. It's not fancy, but it's clean. I didn't spend much time in the hotel, I was busy running... More
