My wife and I jumped down to Miami South Beach for a few days last weekend and while I wanted to stay near the beach I didn't want to pay those rates so I looked for something close to the action. The hotel is in a great spot and easy walking distance to the beach and strip. We had very good service from Carlos who valeted our car to Carlos who checked us in. We had room 211 which was a King Suite and was very large looking out on Collins. The rooms are modern and sparse which fits the art deco theme of the area. We had a refrig, coffee maker, large TV, very comfortable bed and nice sized bathroom. Don't expect luxury in regards to bathroom supplies (e.g. soap and shampoo) and stepping out of the shower/tub is a pretty big step so make sure you have a towel ready. There is a bar and you get a free drink when you check-in (well vodka or scotch and a mixer), you have to get ice from the bar/front desk and parking is either meter(pain), public ($15 - $20) or valet with in/out as needed for $25, pick valet in my opinion.
