I live locally so we did a "staycation" for 2 days as its called. Staff was nice ,curtious. friendly.
The hotel itself is old from the "art deco" era so locals always have a idea that these were old folks homes 30 years ago and some south beach hotels have not been updated much since then .
My wife and I were surprised that the room was nicely updated with a queen size bed,flat screen TV and a decent view of south end of beach overlooking pool.Bath room was nice also as fixtures appeared to be updated .The AC was COLD and new A/C split so no worries over some old ac unit from 1962 . As it has a pool although small is one of the few hotels on Ocean drive off the beach so it s refreshing and unique. Roof top area is perfect for a smoke and the view .Met some great people up there although few went up there during the day .
Only negative is that the free beach chairs and towel service currently not available .That may change but as of Aug 204 bring your own towels from hotel and buy a beach chair from Walgreens 1 block away as the current chair service on the beach charges 20.00 pp and that has nothing to do with the hotel.Also go park your own car - valeting anywhere in South beach is an issue ,not just the hotels' issue .Park it by the convention center where it's cheaper and leave it there a couple of days - rent a bike back for 4.00 to the hotel unless you want to pay alot for valet parking.And you don't need a car anyway .Hallways are looking a little old though but I understand a renovation is planned later this year
Other than that had a great stay - I want to go back and for the locals and didn't know what hotel to go to at a decent price- this is the one
