This property has been under a major renovation/construction project. The rooms on the 3rd floor are currently operating and the swimming pool is closed due to the construction. Access to a pool in the neighboring hotel Shelbourne could be granted for free if needed. This was unnecessary for us because the wide open ocean behind the hotel kept us busy.
The guest service representatives at the front desk were very friendly and welcoming. They provided us with beach towels when needed.
I noticed that a security personnel was available for 24 hours on site, only one of two elevators was working, and the entrance of the hotel was wheelchair accessible.
I actually had to turn off the A/C in the room several times during the stay because it was too cold at night. The mini refrigerator in the room was so handy to keep beverages cold and the ice machine in the hallway was definitely useful.
Because we spent most of the time on the beach and outside of the property, amenities unavailable did not make our stay any worse. ( no cable for TV, no iron/board, no coffee maker, etc.)
The place was convenient to get around the South Beach on foot and to access to the beach within a block.
I would like to stay at this property after the renovation gets completed.
