A great little gem right on the beach just south of the noisy SoBe "strip". Small hotel and small but luxe rooms with neat little balconies. In-house parking not cheap but very accommodating valet staff, esp Marcella. Front desk Brandon makes the best welcome mohitos "with love." Hard truth about hotel chains: elite guests get perks like free WiFi, concierge lounges, room upgrades, personal attention from senior management. Its the same with airlines. We had a great stay; but then we give marriott $6-10000 per year for platinum status--that's 75 nights a year.
