Had an opportunity to spend 3 nights at the hotel recently and was quite pleased with the overall experience. We arrived in early afternoon and they front desk person was determined to upgrade us but was not able to make it work-- not a problem as long as a room was ready and we could settle in. The rooms are small so don't plan on spending a lot of time there-- but that's not why you go to South Beach. What the room lacks in space it makes up for in comfort and decor-- simple, clean, white, and quiet. The bathroom was functional and also on the small side but the toiletries and amenities were a good quality. Staff was pleasant and helpful; they were attentive to requests and made some good recommendations while we were there. The only complaint I would have is about the valet parking arrangement. Valet seems to be a franchised operation with a few of the smaller hotels and they are reliably, undeniably, very slow... sometimes as long as 30 minutes or more. If this were a large hotel, I would understand but for hotel with about 75 rooms I think they could do better. The restaurant FIX is really very good and should have been packed the night we ate there-- but it wasn't. You really have to go into the hotel to see the place so it doesn't benefit from walk-bys like so many of the other places serving food of a far lesser quality. We ate at some of the best places in SB and by far this one was the best for quality, freshness, originality, and service. The bartender was terrific and the entire staff of FIX made sure we had a great experience. This is a great location and I expect the place to book fast once it catches on in the area. It should.
