I booked this hotel a month in advance when most hotels with vacancies on Miami Beach were going for $500/night. The deal I got was for an executive suite, half price. We paid $155 first night, $195 second night (Friday). This was the time period between Christmas and New Years. In that context, it was a real bargain.
When we got there, 5PM, the room wasn't ready yet and there was a man complaining that he hadn't seen housekeeping in 2 days. Not a good sign, I thought, but soon after the room was ready.
It was spacious and the floor was tiled. The bathroom was clean. The windows had some kind of lattice outside them- obviously for plants that were no longer there. They were dirty but , you couldn't see out of them anyway with the lattice. The room felt dated probably because the hotel is an older hotel.
A lot of hotels have made changes to become more energy efficient, this isn't one of them. There is not a recycling bin in sight and the room still has incandescent bulbs. This bothered me.
On the third floor, our sleep was uninterrupted by street noise and generally quiet. For that and the price, I felt it was a good deal because I've stayed on South Beach before-in a nice hotel on the 13th floor and street noise kept us up all night.
The WiFi didn't work and when we brought that to the attention of the front desk we were told-yes, it wasn't working period. I was able to catch a signal of a nearby business and use that.
Valet was $26/day and the hotel wasn't helpful with other options. "There are parking garages around but we aren't affiliated with them." And any of those other options would be a good idea for you- there are 3 garages literally steps from the hotel lobby. We chose the Miami-Dade municipal garage on Oak and Vine (super short walk) and paid $5 a day to park our car. I'm sure this was the best value and it was clean, safe and quiet.
So all and all the staff was non-chalant and not very helpful. The hotel was dated and energy efficiency and clean windows weren't a priority. But the location- proximity to Miami Beach, Coral Gables, Key Biscayne and downtown were stellar. And the time of year we stayed there, it was the best dollar value we could find.
