Visited S Beach, March 14-17, during ultra music festival weekend. We were unaware at the time that the hotel would be hosting pool parties bc of this event and Winter Music Conference. However, both events did not distract us from enjoying ourselves.
The hotel is in prime location, about 2 blocks from Lincoln Rd and sits between Ocean Dr and Collins Avenue, allowing shopping, restaurants, nightlife all within walking distance. Staff was extremely helpful and attentive. Rooms were very clean and quiet.
My only major complaints were: the pool was unable to be used for relaxation due to the high energy electronic pool parties. Had this been publicized on the Kimpton main website that we booked through instead of the surfcomberpoolparty.com. and surfcomber.com, We may have decided to opt for a different hotel. I enjoy Kimpton Hotels, so hopefully the brand can communicate events such as these on their main booking site in the future.
A suggestion for the hotel when they throw pool parties would be to allow non partying guest access to a section of the pool that is closed off from the main pool party just as many other S beach hotels do during this festival. I enjoy the music and have attended the festival for the last 6 years, but there are times when it is appreciated and much needed to have a relaxing area. It is nice to hear the music but sometimes fist-pumping isn't what every guest enjoys from 11am-11pm.
Overall, this is a great place to stay and I would recommend it for anyone looking for a 4 star SOBE experience. Kimpton is awesome for having wine tastings each evening, being pet friendly, and maintaining a chic comfortable boutique vibe.
