I vacationed in South Beach thinking the worst about this hotel unpon my arrival, after reading reviews. They were obviously written by people that have no understanding about the styling of the Art Deco hotels. I was really impressed because this hotel has a really nice contempory decor. It was so zen, peaceful and relaxing. The room was small, staying with the typical Art Deco design. Well worth this visit and I will stay at this location for visits in the future. I didnt have a problem with room service, concierge, nor receiving my beach towels, Catherina even offered a beach umbrella.
The mattresses on the platform bed were OMG soft. I pulled the linen back, so that I could WHAT I was laying on. The mattress was soooo soft. I slept through the harshesh part of Hurricane Issac with no problem.
There was a room safe, iron, ironing board, two, yes two handheld hairdryers, toiletries, clean sheets, swept floor and daily room service.
The continental breakfast was exactly what was to be expected, muffins, juice and fruit. The breakfast setup was conveniently located in the main hallway, so you don't have to get completely dressed for breakfast.
Conveinance is the name of the game with this hotel. It is around the courner from Espanola Way, a block away from the tour reservation shop, 2 blocks from Loews Hotel, and one block over from the beach (you can safefly cut through the alleys, instead of walking around the city block. There is a $9.99 buffet around the corner on Williams St., with a miniMart next door, AND there is a Walgreens coming soon.
I felt very safe staying here alone. I decided to sit on the porch one early morning. The gentleman that was working the front desk, slid his chair over so that he could keep and eye on me. (awesome!!!!!)
I will definetly be back! My only negative is that I wish that there was a customer rewards program.
Oh yeah!!!! I left my bottle opener at home, their "sister" hotel waiter opened it for me with no problem. And he refuse to accept a tip! (awesome!!!!)
The standard room is you typical 13x15 bedroom with a full size bed. You have to really LOVE the per...
