This was our post-cruise hotel, we stayed for 3 nights. We checked in on Halloween and out on November 3rd. Because we had to leave our ship at 10AM and could not check in until 1PM, we dropped off our luggage and went to explore south beach. The location of this hotel is great and the price was very reasonable. It's one block off the beach and there is lots of shopping to be done if you want to rent a cab or walk to it. I will say that we opted to walk along the boardwalk the 25ish blocks down to where one of our tours was and it was very quick and not crowded at all, plus we didn't have to deal with crossing the streets/watching for traffic. We stayed in room 406, and it was fine. The air conditioning in this place works and it works well! The hallways were always cold. The doors will slam quite loudly so if you are leaving early in the morning or getting back late at night be mindful of others around you. The elevator is very slow, I have to agree with others reviews and the staff at the hotel freely admits it. I did notice the certification of the elevator being inspected had expired on 9/30/2013, more than a year ago. Maybe a visit from an inspector would fix the problem with it? We did not have housekeeping clean our room any of the days we stayed because we were hardly ever in our room except to sleep. You are in the heart of South Beach after all! We did notice they were still cleaning some rooms as late as 5PM on our floor when we would come back to change for dinner. The downsides to this hotel is that the wifi is a $10 charge. But for how cheaply we were able to stay here I guess we could live with that, we just did not use our tablets while we were in our room. Oh and one more thing, we loved to sit out on the front patio of the hotel and just people watch if we didn't have anything planned.
