This place was a really pleasent surprise all the way from the checkin to checkout.
Lady at the checkin was very friendly and so was all the other hotel personnel. The apartment we got had just about everything you could ask for. full kitchen, separate living room and bedrooms, big flat screen TV's in both rooms. Apartment seemed to be recently renowated and atleast for our taste the room and the whole place looked very nice. Hotel has also also nice swimming pool.
The location of the hotel is also good.Hotel is close to Collins so the restaurants, shops and nightclubs are within walking distance, but yet far enough to escape from all fuss that is goind on in the evenings at the Ocean Drive & Collins.Beach is few hundred mater distance.
Also Walgreens is close to get the basic supplys and Publix is within walkable distance.
This hotel as all the one belonging to SOBE group offer a free shuttle pickup from and to airport at scheduled times.Also there seemed to be free happy our drinks at Catalina for anyone staying at the SOBE group hotels.
Only negative sides that I could think about from this place where the apartment doors. When the door is left to close it really slams down heavily making sound that you think that whole floor is shakin. We had some youngs in the next room and they were constantly going in and out from the door so the slamming of the door was getting bit annoying. On the other hand there where not much sounds from the streets or anywhere else.
Also one thing to consider is the parking issue if you have a car.We did not have at that time so this was not an issue for us but the reception told that parking is quite a nightmare.They offer valet parking which is around 20 dollars per night if remembered correctly but there is only limited amount of these available and there are no free spots here.Msot of the area is marked as residential parking.
Anyway I would defenetly recommend this place for anyone.
