Traveled with my two girlfriends during the last week of March. Had a great time. It was during the Ultra Music Festival. Super trendy hotel, the lobby greeted you with techno music during all hours of the day... and night. It was fine though once you got to your room. You couldn't hear the music from down stairs. It was fun coming out of the elevator when you're getting ready to leave. Pre-party in the lobby, then head to the beach, dinner, clubs, whatever. Staff was great. The location was just two-three blocks from Ocean's restaurants and then the beach. In addition, it was close to the stores, so you didn't have to travel far to shop. The lunch/dinner patio was inviting and the food was delicious. I liked staying at the boutique hotel vs a chain because it gave you a different feel for the city. We felt like we had a little apt that no one knew about. decor was trendy and inviting, and all white, which for us is very miami. Hope you choose to stay here. Enjoy! Not really welcoming to families looking for the pool, etc. I would think that it attracts people in their early 20s-early 40s.
Try to get a room on the higher floors for views and not hear the music coming from the lobby.
