I booked this hotel through their website a few days before we arrived in Miami for just one night before we left on our cruise. I was a bit unsure because of some of the negative reviews, but this hotel turned out to be perfect for us. Our flight was arriving early so I let the hotel know. We were able to check in early, no problems. Staff was helpful and we went from lobby to room to beach in about 20 minutes! The location is a short 2 min. walk along a pathway to the beach. The hotel provides beach towels, which was very handy too. The location is to the north end of South beach. It's quieter and about at 10-15 minute walk from the busy pedestrian area.
The room was only ok, but it served its purpose. It was worn, had no working alarm and the tv didn't get many channels (which was only a bummer because the Oscars were on that night!).
The breakfast is all carbs, but it's a nice perk. There is a great little cafe right beside the hotel which serves good reasonable food and great cappuccinos (It doesn't look like much but the food is good!). They had delectable-looking pastries but I didn't stay long enough to try any. You can also get takeout pizza.
The staff were so nice that they let us leave our bags for the day when we got back from our cruise and wanted to go to the beach for our remaining time in Miami.
TIP: If you are flying into Miami airport the airport flyer bus will take you right in front of this hotel for just a couple of dollars. Very economical!
I will return to the Lorraine for a longer stay another time. Next time I just have to be careful to sunscreen the tops of my feet to protect them from that Miami sun!
