Have been meaning to write a review for some time now and share with the fellow travelers my experience. First of all I was reluctant to stay here as it’s not a famous “hip” hotel but let me tell you the stay exceeded my expectations. It’s run like a family hotel and everyone from the General Manager to the housekeeping staff makes you feel right at home. I was recovering from an appendectomy and I really felt taken care of. Asked for a microwave for the room but as they didn't have one to provide for my room the housekeeper let me in the “staff room” to warm up my oatmeal there. Now that’s friendliness! Location is perfect, just blocks away from the action (Ocean dr., Lincoln, Espanola way) but still quiet enough for when you want to disconnect. Be sure to try out the Italian restaurant downstairs. Please keep up the good work! Notice this hotel has been climbing up the Tripadvisor ladder and rightfully so. Look forward to staying here again when I’m back in Miami.
