The hotel was recently renovated so the lobby and rooms have very modern decor and are very well maintained. The location is great, it's only a few steps from the beach and far enough from the main strip that you don't have to deal with the street noise. The rooms are a decent size, however, the bathrooms are pretty small, especially if you have more than one person. Walls are pretty thin, so we were woken up a few times throughout the night by loud guests. Also, on our first night we could hear someone snoring through the air vent. It was pretty loud but the hotel staff was really nice about it and moved our room. Staff was really friendly and I would stay here again if the price doesn't increase too much.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Opened June 2013: The Lord Balfour made its debut after a multi-million dollar renovation. The Lord Balfour molds well into the rich diversity of Art Deco styles as its exterior is marked with forms of the industrial era. Originally opened in 1940, the Lord Balfour hotel opened its doors as the influx of tourists streamed to Miami Beach, with an enthusiasm for the warm and sunny climate – continuing to do so today. The hotel sits in close proximity to the city’s ever growing arts and culture scene. Enter the hotel’s public space comprising lobby and bar, and you’ll discover a chic vintage setting combined with animated and witty design details. A prominent display of mirrors, on a backdrop of soft textures is a playful homage to Lord Balfour, a man who was considered thoroughly vain. Guest rooms feature natural and sustainable bamboo hardwood floors and all of the modern comforts required of traveler’s today. Oversized windows overlook the interior palmed courtyard, Ocean Drive, or offer city views of the SoFi neighborhood. Furnished with custom designed writing desks and chairs, and leather lounge seating, additional amenities include ETRO bathroom products in a scent that will satisfy both men and women. Comforts include luxurious bed linens along with plush robes, towels and slippers. Fully modernized for today’s guests, rooms feature docking stations, 40” televisions and complimentary WiFi. ... more less
