I just got back from a staycation in Miami Beach. Originally, I made reservations to stay at the Bentley Hotel on South Beach, but I was advised at check-in that we would be transferred to The Gale hotel due to renovation issues. This was a good upgrade. The Gale is a new hotel with a lovely staff. Gili, the concierge was very helpful. One of the perks to staying here was that the hotel offers a free shuttle to anywhere on south beach. Both drivers that we had, Reggie and Brian, were awesome! My only concern with my stay was that our room was a dungeon. There was a window, but we could not see out of it because they blocked it out with fake grass (kind of a bummer if you're on south beach), and the room didn't have any furniture like a chair or a desk for us to put our things. So if you stay here those are things to be mindful of. Also, make sure you budget for the daily $25 resort fee that they include in addition to your rate. You get access to the beach/pool chairs and towels, wifi, and a $15 credit toward food/beverage. Your average drink is going to run you $15 anyway. They get you coming or going, but it's a standard staying on the beach. The Gale was good!
