This is a new hotel concept in Miami with a brand new location in Miami. The hotels is gorgeous with its open space lobby and clean lines (both in the common areas) and in the room. When I entered the room, I felt like I was in a trendy contemporary NYC apartment with its small open kitchen and stainless steel fridge. I was in Miami for business and was not leaving the area until the afternoon. The checkout time of 12pm is a hour later than most hotels, and if it is slow, the will allow you a little extra time. The staff was friendly and accommodating. They serve a healthier breakfast than most hotels, with eggs omelet on English muffins, fruit smoothie shots, fresh fruit, juices, cereal etc. They also have a small coffee self-service bar that is available all day. I got a 1 bedroom for their website prepay rate of about $122/night. For the fact the hotel is new and size of the room, I thought it was a steal. Now, the only negative - the location. As most of the other TripAdvisor members mentioned the location is not the best. I arrived at the hotel around 10pm and I was fairly concerned driving through a remote, grimy industrial area by myself. I did get concerned for my car in their parking lot since the area outside of the hotel’s perimeter was kind of dark and dreary. If you do not have a car, I would not recommend this hotel. In the afternoon, there were detours around the area and traffic was a nightmare. It was hard to find a decent restaurant for quick lunch. However, despite the location, I would definitely stay here again.
