I'm flying from California to Miami and I like to stay at the Daddy O as it's in a great location, away from the neon lights and loud music of South Beach, but still close enough to go there any time.
The beach is only a few blocks away, and the area is safe and clean.
I also like the small vibe of the Daddy O. It's modern, hip, clean and friendly. The staff is great.
I just have to say a little shout out to Harold who works at the front desk. I've had to change my reservation a few times as my stay keeps getting extended, and Harold helped me each time with graciousness and humor and I really felt like i was getting personalized service that you don't get with big hotel chains.
Oh - and don't miss the Thursday night wine and cheese that the hotel does. It's nice to just relax at the hotel on the large front patio. I'll would recommend Daddy Hotel for anyone looking for a relaxing vacation near the beach.
