Stayed here just this past weekend (Sept 14-15 2013)...fast attentive valet parking...beautiful lobby with pristine Crema Marfil (I think) Marble tile throughout the entrance/first-floor common area (two thumbs up to the housekeeping staff, floor is beautifully kept! sparkles like the Nile!). Nice rooms with modern light-wood decor and platform bed...room is spacious w/ extra sitting area and 2 nice baths. Rooms were super-clean upon arrival and after daily house-keeping. Awesome view of Collins Ave looking north from room. Very Friendly server at the Cappuccino/Ice cream counter.
Two very small minuses...one...some very loud siren-like alarm was going off for a couple of hours...I believe it was coming from one of the lower floors of the hotel but I could be wrong..very loud and annoying..not sure why it was allowed to go off for so long....Second...cleaning staff by the pool was using a liquid chemical from a jug and a push-broom very near the edge of the pool while guests were in the pool just after dark....may have been harmless but maybe it should be done 3rd shift when pool is empty (could scare some guests!). Overall awesome stay and beautiful property throughout...will stay here again!
