This lovely boutique/art deco hotel is a stones throw from the beach. I found it immensely frustrating to valet park, but that's because the street itself is very busy.
Once the parking attendant was able to take out car, we checked in and quickly made it to our 2nd floor room. The rooms were small but functional, with a fridge for my Bud Light Limes :)
The complementary breakfast offered fruit and breads better than most other places, but the woman running it is quite rude and always on her phone. Be sure to get there before 10.30am because as soon as 10.30 hits she puts her phone away and packs everything up!
Definately reccomend this hotel, its right amongst it on the beach and isnt far from better restaurants that don't rip you off along the strip. It is a short walk to most places in Miami Beach, as well as the 7th Street Beach access where I spent most of my time swimming and enjoying the Miami Sun.
Try and bring your own beach towels, as the towels provided by the hotel for beach use are simply white bathroom towels which are quite thin and not suitable for the beach.
