First visit to Miami for a conference in October so I brought my wife and 7 year old daughter with me. I had originally booked a less expensive hotel several blocks away with bigger rooms but changed to the Surfcomber because of the reviews and proximity to everything so my family could entertain themselves while I was at the conference. I definitely made the right choice! Like everybody says, employees there are great and make you feel welcome from check in to check out. All of the free perks like champagne at check in for Kimpton members (sign up - it's free), free happy hour and treats by the pool, fruit-infused water throught the hotel and even $10 mini bar credit are the icing on the cake. Hotel is walking distance to everything - restaurants, clubs, convention center, drug store, shops, etc. Beach is right behind the hotel and the pool area is relaxing. There was a band playing there a couple of days we were there. The streets around the hotel were safe enough for my wife and daughter to walk around day or night. My only concerns were the reviews that complained about the small rooms and bathrooms but it was fine for our family of 3. Besides, if you are steps from a relaxing pool, the beach, great restaurants and shopping, what are you doing sitting in your room??? I would highly recommend this hotel and would not think twice about staying there again. The only two things I will say is that we could hear taxis honking all night on the weekends from our room late at night so if this is a problem, ask for a room away from the street. Secondly, we ordered a mojito from the pool cabana and it was way too strong and didn't have enough lime and mint. It was also small and $13 but that is probably normal for pool side service in this area. I'm sure they would have replaced it if I asked but I couldn't bring myself to complain with everything else being so perfect. I hope to make it back there some day!
