I have stayed at Daddy O on many occasions, most recently on two occasions, both in May 2014.
The hotel's location is ideal, walking distance from Bal Harbour shops and Surfside restaurants, and safely far enough from the shoddy vulgarity that South Beach has turned into. It is a welcoming place and we felt like arriving at our home away from home on both stays this month.
The staff is professional, welcoming, warm, and efficient. Natalia and Asher stood out during both of our stays. The rooms are pleasant, clean, and modern. They have safes, minibars, a Keurig coffeemaker, and free local, long-distance, and international calls. There is free Wi-Fi everywhere.
Daddy O offers a complimentary breakfast and free water and coffee all day in a small lounge. The free coffee comes from a Starbucks coffeemaker, each serving ground and brewed on the spot. A great touch!
