I made a last minute (literally, booking the room the day I checked in), two-night reservation at Lord's. The price was very good for the location and quality, at $135 plus taxes.
Check-in was probably the low point of the stay. I arrived at around 2pm hoping I'd be able to go straight to the room. It's true the reservation stated a 3pm check-in time, but once at the counter the agent said 4pm and when I replied that my reservation stated 3pm he just casually said "Yeah, they have to change that". As far as I know, what is written in print is a binding contract. Anyway, I didn't want to make a fuss, so I left my bags at the lobby and headed for the beach.
Once in the room, I was pleasantly surprised. Even though my room was the cheapest available, it was quite spacious and could easily accommodate two people. It also had a nice courtyard view, where I could see the pools and Collins in the distance.The decor may or may not be of your taste. I like it, but that's a personal thing.
It was interesting that, even though the hotel name has changed, the difference is mostly in the decor. I stayed at the Nash (which used to be the previous property at the building), and bits and pieces of it can be seen throughout. The bathroom, for example, is exactly the same as the one I found at Nash four years ago and could use some updating, but nothing major.
The restaurant is good, not spectacular, and the prices OK for South Beach, with a very nice outdoor area facing Collins. Great for people watching. The staff is quite helpful, mostly young people whose first language was French, I don't know if they are French or French Canadian.
A word of advice: If you go in the winter don't expect to get much use out of the three small pools as the surrounding buildings cast as shadow very early into the afternoon. But hey, the beach is two blocks away, and the location is one of the strong points of this hotel.
