We had a night at this hotel to celebrate my birthday at the end of a two week holiday in Florida. From start to end, this hotel is excellent. From the valet parking to the beach staff, all staff are friendly, helpful and they all remember your name. You cannot beat the location, right on South Beach, and all rooms overlook the sea. Rooms are large and well equipped. The only thing I didn't like was the clear bathroom window, but they do supply courtesy blinds if you ask. The cocktails are amazing and the pool is lovely and quiet. I would not stay anywhere else in Miami!
