The Sherbrooke Hotel will be my go-to place in Miami Beach forever more. It is more like your own private apartment, do as you want, be as you will kind of place. Mitch, the owner, shows you to the room, is available to answer any questions you have about the place, where to go, or what to do. After that, you have your own lovely, giant place to get into your Miami vibe.
The rooms are clean, with beautiful, polished wood floors, full kitchen facilities, ceiling fans, sturdy air con units, and windows that open to let the Miami sound and smells breeze in at night. There are large mirrors to primp and admire yourself in your bikini and sun glazed skin, and plenty of closet and dresser space for all of your threads and gems. Wi-fi is free, televisions are large (if you are going to bother to watch the tube), and the showers are hot and with ample water pressure. I was nay bothered by noise from guest nor street. It was my own haven to have just as I want it.
Every morning for exercise, I walked in any direction, usually one block over to the ocean, and would finish my routine on the old school power tower unit, which sits in the ground floor reception for anyone to pump up on. I think I was the only person who had made use of it for a long while, but it is Miami, so anything goes when it comes to body beautiful. There is even a massive mirror on the opposite wall to reflect more light into the perfectly tiled space and/or to stare at your self, if you are that kind of work out mind.
Without waffling on, the doors are secure and the lift is totally original and works perfectly (but I took the stairs for the most part for exercise). I was a single woman travelling and I never felt unsafe at any point where a lock and key were needed. My room was tidied every day, but you do make your own bed. It is an apartment style stay, not a hotel. I swept my own floors, full of sand from my sacred hours on the beach. There is a closet full of all things necessary for a clean space.
I love the Sherbrooke Hotel, without question, and the man who runs it, is part of the magic. He works incessantly at keeping it just right. For me, it is part of my perfect Miami Beach.
Ask for the rooms with stone tiles.
