This will be a glowing 3 star review based on the value Hotel 18 was, and with some small improvements it could easily move into the 4 star category.
First the positives, on my stay it was only about $125 a night. Located only a block away from all the action of South Beach it was very convenient, clean, and the staff was very friendly. They offer parking at around $25 a night which was also nice. The room was more like a studio apartment as it had a fridge and an oven. Additionally they also have free wifi that worked well.
On to the less good. I found the bed to be mediocre, just super soft and squeaky at times. I'm pretty tech savvy and found the tv/cable to be not all that user friendly. For a hotel that was just reopened/remodeled I found the electric outlets to not be in convenient locations, I had to move furniture slightly in order to have my phone charge on the nightstand, I would've that they might've had a USB outlet.
Overall I would recommend Hotel 18 and would definitely return as many of their competitors were twice the price of this place.
