I was definitely hesitant to stay at this place because of the very mixed reviews. But for the reasonable mid-week price and location, it was irresistible. For $185 I got a 2BR, 2BA fully-furnishes apartment -- full kitchen with beautiful countertop and bar stools, dining table and chairs, balcony overlooking the bay, even a walk-in-closet in the master bedroom that leads to the bathroom with double-showerheads.
I was blown away.
Everything in the room was spotless and new. It was beyond perfect, and I could not believe the value. I wanted to move into that apartment.
Outside of the apt was a slightly different story. The lobby is clean & charming, but the service is VERY lacking. The front desk was not always staffed and those who worked the front were not professional. They weren't rude, but it did not feel right. I'll list out my thoughts below:
- huge & gorgeous apt that you can honestly live in.
- great mid-week price; overall FANTASTIC value (especially considering that most hotels in Miami run around $400/night)
- pool & gym available
- great view of the water
- lackluster service staff
- the lobby & hallway smelled funny
- they had an elevator that was under construction but was still in service?!? It felt completely unsafe.
- All doors use traditional metal keys, which can get stuck & jammed. I had to get another set of keys and slam my door to get it open.
