This hotel is a real 24 Carat diamond amidst a lot of Miami Beach fools gold. The location is perfect---directly situated on a gorgeous stretch of beach & several blocks removed from the noisy strip along ocean drive. The grounds are spectacular--2 large art deco, kidney shaped swimming pools (one heated , the other not, take your pick) surrounded by a veritable rain forest (without the rain)-- dozens and dozens of exotic trees, palms, shrubs, & flowering plants. The rooms are VERY large...in fact, most of them are not "rooms" at all but rather full 1 bedroom apartments. Many of the units have balconies with ocean views due to the fact that the hotel is kind of split in two with half the rooms lining the north edge and the other half at the south edge of the vast, landscaped pool area. There's an excellent restaurant with indoor, outdoor and poolside service. Try the fresh grilled grouper sandwich with asparagus on the side-- a real bargain @ $12. The staff are top of the line--always pleasant and helpful. Simply put, i have never stayed in a better hotel than the Savoy.
