Some places you like so much you just want to keep it to yourself. The Surfcomber is one of those. (I stayed there a couple of weeks ago and tried to get a booking in February - but no luck!) But in the spirit of sharing with my fellow travelers I won't hold back.
I travel to Miami at least once a month so am always on the lookout for good places to stay. I chose the Surfcomber because I stayed at the Philadelphia Kimpton and had a great time. I was not disappointed. I don't usually stay in South Beach because of the tourists and how frenetic it can be, but this unpretentious looking hotel is so calm and cool (as in hip, but not too hip) inside you can leave the South Beach scene just by walking in the doors.
The spotlessly clean rooms are small but have everything you need including luxuriously comfortable beds and linens. You can hear voices and noise from the rooms next door, but that is true in most older hotels and the guests were all quite civil and polite, so even though there was a family with children next to us for 4 nights it was very quiet. The bottom line is if you have Charlie Sheen next to your room it will be noisy no matter how think the walls are. Oh, the i phone clock/charger, wireless, and morning New York Times were such thoughtful touches. The staff were helpful and friendly without being cloying or overbearing. Whoever does their professional development and training gets a tip-of-the-hat.
The beach at this part of Miami Beach is unmatchable. There are excellent restaurants nearby if you venture out from Lincoln Road. What can I say? Its Miami - what's not to love? How I hated to leave :-(
