We stayed here for a night before a cruise. This was far and away the best hotel I have stayed in in South Florida. The hotel itself is beautiful with a curated art collection.( Be sure to pick up the "Art and Illusion" brochure). The staff was friendly, helpful and accommodating. If you have stayed in other hotels in Miami, you know that this is not always the case. We want to give a particular shout out to Henry, the concierge, who helped us select an excellent restaurant with vegetarian food within walking distance. Our room was clean and comfortable. Upon check-in we received coupons to use at the bar. We used them and were so comfortable on the pool deck on a beautiful night that we scrapped our plans to explore other bars in the area and made a night of it right at the hotel. My only slight criticism is that it is hard to catch a cab at this location. If you are in a hurry to get somewhere, head down the street toward Brickell. I suspect that this situation may change once cabbies get more accustomed to the hotel being there. I will definitely stay here again when in Miami.
