This property is perfectly located close to the beach and comercial / restaurants area at Ocean Drive, but not right into the noisy area. Comfortable room, elegant decoration and prime taste amenities. Some people might find the bathroom too small, but it was not a problem for us (just me and my daughter). The breakfast was simple but enough, with choices of bread, drinks, fruits and yogurts. The staff was very helpful and ready to help. Although it is more "european oriented", the manager is Brazilian and was very kind and friendly from even before check-in till time to leave. The parking (valet) is not cheap, but average Miami and the service is good. Beach service impeccable, with chaises, towels and shade umbrellas. Gay friendly. Highly reccomended for any party, we will sure come back.
- 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
