I love these people that blame the hotel for Expedia's faults. As Jerry Seinfeld says" Anyone can TAKE a reservation, but to hold that reservation is the key element." How does the previous reviewer know that Expedia actually contacted the hotel?!?! Just because you get a reservation number doesn;t mean anything! I have traveled hundreds of times for business and like clockwork I arrive to the hotel with my PAID receipt from Expedia and the hotel looks at me like I'm from Mars. This is true for Holiday Inn's, Ramada you name it. Hotels must pay a fee for Expedia and generally are not to fond of some outside company making false claims like guarantee a room "with an oceanview" HA! how do they know! Have they been there and are they the ones actually booking the room??
With all that being said, the staff is helpful and courteous, I learned that the newer management and staff is much more helpful that the last. The rooms are amazing, straight from South Beach! There were renovations taking place that did not bother me one bit, which was a concern of mine going in. Loved the breakfast and the whole feel of the quaintness. Saw a few ants and flies, but nothing worth writing about....Its Florida and its on the beach!! Overall I would stay there again and for the price, good luck finding a better value!
