One of the main reasons we booked this hotel was because of the reviews, and we're very glad we did. The location is very good. Yes, it's a few blocks from the beach and a few more from what feels like the very center of South Beach, but the walk is short and pleasant. We actually liked that it wasn't in the center of all the madness and was very quiet. There is also a bus stop right in front of the hotel for a local bus that only costs $0.25 each way and goes up and down Washington Ave, how convenient! The room was large, as was the bathroom. It was also very clean! The water pressure in the shower could have been better, but that often is the case in hotels. The staff we interacted with the most were Juliana and Michael and they were both GREAT! Overall, we definitely recommend this hotel to anyone looking to be in a central location, but not in the crazy mix of South Beach.
