The Viscay was an ok hotel, it did help me understand art deco. Art deco is the word people use to describe the run down buildings all over south beach. When the paint starts to peel off your house and the neighborhood association starts to complain, tell them you are going for an art deco look, it will save tons of money in renovation. The room was small and somewhat dingy looking. The cleaning staff did a nice job with what they had to work with. The bathroom was a mess, the sink, toilet, and shower were all small. I am average size 5' 9" 180 and felt cramped good luck to those who are larger.
The hotel is close to all the action which allowed us to be in the hotel as little as possible. South Beach is a great beach experience, but the nightlife leaves much to be desired. The popular stops are crowed and have long lines, the other clubs use gimmicks to get you in only to find them empty.
Good luck on your trip to Miami, it can easily be a memorable vacation or a comedy of errors, so be wise in your decisions.
