We drove down to South Beach for our cousin's wedding and we are beyond glad this is the hotel we decided to stay at. We live in Florida and so we really wanted to pick a hotel that felt like an exclusive get-away but without all the South Beach craziness. This hotel was it.
From the moment we arrived, everyone was so friendly! The valet guy was nice and helpful. Before we even arrived, we had already asked to speak to the concierge to help us find the perfect restaurant for our after-wedding reception. (It was a very small & intimate wedding) So once we checked in we went down and met Richard, the Concierge to put a face to the voice. He was as nice in person as he was over the phone.
Before the wedding, we had lunch at the hotel restaurant, where once again, the service was excellent, we had Ebi shrimp appetizers, shrimp salads, and veggie wraps.. all delicious! Ezequiel the chef came over to us and made sure we were satisfied with our meals which was nice and appreciated.
If you appreciate art, then you will love this hotel, as it is covered in beautiful art pieces.. from private art collections to amazing photography. My favorites pieces were the black & white photos from the 60s. I can't remember the artist, but his pictures are amazing.
Now about the room.. the room we stayed in had a balcony and overlooked the long grassy patio leading to the pool. (can you say amazing?) The room was decorated very modern, but had a few antique pieces which I thought was a cool touch. Our room was stocked with everything we needed, it even had a floor-stand/speaker ipod docking station which was way better than the regular alarm-clock ipod docking stations most rooms have. We never heard any noise from any other rooms or any noise coming in from outside.
The next morning we had the breakfast buffet which had everything you could possibly want for breakfast, including chocolate croissants. Again, great service for breakfast.
We spent the morning at the beach where we got our chairs set up and got taken care of with drinks and towels.. there were two guys that helped us and they were both great, personable and helpful. We also spent some time at the pool which also had quite a bit of cool art pieces for decor.
We checked out later in the afternoon, and again, on our way to check out, everyone was beyond nice. James, the guest relations manager came up to us to make sure everything had gone as planned the day before with the wedding plans and plans we made afterward.
I have to say, I wasn't sure what to expect, but my husband and I loved this hotel and we will definitely be back.
The hotel room was clean and had really cool decor. the modernism with just a bit of
