The folks at the The Hotel South Beach are perfect, all of them...special thanks to the Concierge, wonderfully organized and kind. My room was beautiful, over the News Café, open all night, not a choice for a light sleeper. The doors and windows are very good and sound proof. Great bathroom. The balcony and street veiw was constant entertainment. I don’t know about families with children, but for couples, you don’t have to leave hotel or the the block for a wonderful time.
