We chose this hotel as we wanted somewhere small and quiet off the main drag as I don't like big noisy hotels. This really suited us. There was a municipal car park on 12th so we planned to use that rather than the hotel valet. We arrived in the middle of a massive thunderstorm so we drove directly to the hotel hoping to use their valet but unfortunately, as with a lot of South Beach, the seemingly neglect footpath/road works prevented pulling in front of the hotel. We had to turn back then and use the car park. This turned out fine as we didn't move the car for the 3 days we were there at $20 a day. When the rain eased off we made a dash for the hotel and the very pleasant female receptionist must have felt sorry for us arriving in a bit wet as she upgraded us to their grand suite and it was fabulous, like our own mini condo. The room had a beautiful, spacious bathroom, a good sized living room and a bedroom with dressing room and a small balcony with loungers. It suited us perfectly for our short stay and I would highly recommend the Impala for anyone looking for a lovely, quiet, small hotel in busy South Beach.
