We stayed in the south tower of this hotel/condo complex which is privately owned and I get the feeling the owners shouldn't really be renting their apartments out. We booked through a company called Feel Miami who asked for a deposit but this turned out to be their introduction fee to the owner. They also referred to the apartments as Calico apartments which meant I couldn’t find them on Tripadviser. Our owner was prompt in replying but informed us that there was a 50 dollar resort fee and a 150 dollar fee for checking our character references. Neither of which were mentioned by Feel Miami. It took 10 days for him to get our resort passes and in the meantime we had to tell security we were friends of his and were just visiting (whilst showing our I.D) every time we wanted to get in which soon got a bit old. The complex itself is OK - there are 2 pools and a gym but the gym wasn’t part of our rental agreement. Suggest you are a dog lover as there are dogs everywhere and the grass in the middle of the 2 towers is used as their recreation area. The apartment was a studio which was big enough but the furniture was dated and tired and not all the electrical appliances were in working order. One good thing though was the high speed internet in the apartment which was both reliable and fast. Location is good - not far from Lincoln Road and Washington Avenue where all the shops and restaurants are.
