Prior to visiting South Beach, I was a bit concerned after reading reviews about the Gale. However, my stay was quite pleasant. I did request a room on the third floor knowing that there's a downstairs club. I could not hear a thing from my room and slept like a baby (despite being a light sleeper).
The room was clean. I would agree with other reviews that the room set-up is awkward. I did request a clothing rack as there's no drawers nor a decent size closet for wardrobe.
All in all, it was a pleasant stay. The staff wants to accommodate and the location is superb.
