This place was great and the staff was even better. The only negatives that we have are these...the rooms were super small and when I booked online, I called and I assume that Palmer House and Dream were in the stages of changing management--I'm not sure. The person that I spoke with before arriving (Palmer House) was extremely rude. I called to ask about the sizing of the room and to book "double beds." I was told there weren't any double beds during the time of my stay. Being that I had already paid thru an online service I thought it couldn't be that bad (because I couldn't cancel my reservation). The hotel is super cute! But upon entering the room (myself, and TWO guests, lmao) we found that the blue lights were rather dark and the room super small. BUT, we did really like the decor!!! So, the 3 of us had to share a king bed. It was really funny!!! The other negative was the blue lighting...it is rather dark. I was told they only have the king sized beds. The room is like the size of a studio with a washroom and shower. Somehow, the decor makes up for the small space. :) And the cost was very affordable!!! I was hoping that there would be free WiFi in the rooms but you have to pay for it. However, you can purchase it through a beach package that includes beach chairs, flip flops, towels & wifi for your room. I found this helpful since we were there for the beach.
Other than that, we LOVED this place!!! I would say that these rooms are more so for couples or 2 people that are really close, as there is no privacy in the room. The staff of Dream went WAAAAY above and beyond to help us and suggest places for us to try. They were MUCH more friendly than the person(s) I spoke with when I called and they answered The Palmer House.
The rooms were quiet, other than the occasional noise of a neighbor laughing loud. You can hear some noises in the other rooms. But it wasn't too much to complain about. We couldn't hear a word or noise from the drunken monkeys from the streets. We slept like babies. lol We didn't get a chance to order room service. I just bought food from the locall places and took back to our room. I will suggest a cheaper, better alternative to all the not so great cuban places and pizza joints--11th Street Diner. Its right up the block literally and the food is delish! The other thing I wasn't to thrilled about was the gratuity automatically being added to ALL of our checks at the restaurants. But that has nothing to do with the rating of Dream.
Although I have grown bored of the whole hype of "SoBe" I won't be returning to south Miami Beach & the overpricing of everything; But if I do I WILL be staying at Dream. I really loved this place. :) And Thank you guys for all of your help (Dream staff)!!!
