We have stayed in many boutique hotels in SOBE, but The Gale hotel was by far the most well adorned. The building has been totally renovated into a modern interior designer's dream. The staff was extremely friendly and went out of their way to make sure our stay was comfortable and nice. The rooftop pool is wonderful as well as the restaurant and lounge. Definitely order pizza at the restaurant if you want some authentic Italian style pizza. The room was small but well designed so felt large enough. We had a corner room in the new section so we had absolute quiet during our stay. If there was only one critical thing to say, it would be that the servers at the restaurant were not always friendly or attentive; considering they add 18% gratuity off the bat they should be much better!
