When you book directly, you get a free one hour of wine and cheese. You also get breakfast buffet with eggs, sausage, cereal, fruit, yogurt, bagels, etc. The pool area is beautiful and... More

OUTSTANDING location. This small hotel on a sliver of prime real estate includes everything you need for a perfect vacation. From the street to the beach: 1) you are greeted by an expert staff who says "yes" to your requests, halls are lined with wonderful photos of old Miami Beach, 2) the room is clean and quiet and the bath...

Couldn't ask for a better location - right on the beach on Collins Ave. Nice pool area, nice access to the beach walk, friendly and helpful staff. Great area. The decor is in need of improvement. But for the price, a great value.

This hotel is directly on the beach in my favorite part of SoBe - a little north, but still within walking distance, of Ocean Drive. I like being here because you can walk to the madness of Ocean Drive if you want to, but you can also escape it when you want to. The hotel is an older art deco... More
