After reading other reviews (some not so kind) and seeing that this hotel was 1/2 the price of the others, I was a tiny bit worried.
There was no need to be! The hotel was clean, our room was clean (yes it was a new one), and all of the staff was extremely friendly. Lots of people visiting from other countries so it had an "exotic" appeal.
You can complain that it costs a few bucks to park or rent beach chairs, or you can realize that you're in a resort area where that's going to happen.
You can find flaws in any hotel. Here, the elevators could be redone, but they worked, were always available and I kept thinking, I'm staying at a totally nice hotel for about 1/2 of what people are paying two hotels down.
And the location! Right on the best part of Miami Beach - This is the area where celebrities would stay as evidenced by the Ferrari's and Lambo's in an adjacent hotel. It's two blocks from Lincoln Road Mall, two or three more to Espanola Way and about a mile to the base of SOBE where another hot spot is.
My only regret is renting a car because there was no need to do so. Everything is right there and cabs and buses are a constant.
