Most of the hotels in Miami were built in the 40s or 50s so don't expect to find a Hilton resort type here. This hotel is located right in the middle of South Beach, so you will have access to everything. We had room 222 which was a nice corner unit. It was about the size of a cabin on a cruise ship. We did find bugs in the room in the morning. I thought that was really bad. They were located by the waste in by the desk.
Our room was quite and the staff was very kind. I emailed them ahead of time to let them know we were going to be there.
Check in and check out was easy. We did Valet parking.. Its 20 overnight to find parking yourself, and 25 plus tip for them.. that's ok.. I left the phone in the car by accident, so I located the car and phone.. they use city parking on 7th street which is safe..
Don't be fooled by the buy one get one drinks at the bar... Yes you buy one and yes you get one... but only the one you pay for .. total scam lol...
Overall I have to say this is a 3 star hotel for the area It was somewhere else it would be a 2.0.
I would go back with a deal, but might not if it was at full price.. Its Miami
