The Gale couldn't have been in a better location in terms of South Beach hotels. It has all the amenities of a big, massive resort but with a really intimate feel. The rooms were clean and the staff was friendly. The bar in the lobby also had great drinks and bartenders. It's close enough to all the craziness of South Beach but once you get back to The Gale, you could relax and get some rest or nurse your hangover on the rooftop pool without kids screaming around you or drunk people shouting.
