I booked this hotel a few months ago before the recent favourable reviews so it was a bit of a gamble. We got a corner beach view on the 14th floor. We were only there for 2 nights and as we were seeing friends in Miami we did not spend much time in the room. Bed/bedding comfortable. No bath in bathroom but shower was large with a decently powerful shower head. Used the gym first thing in the morning so there was no one else around. Not huge but perfectly adequate. Also used pool early before other guests around. Perfect water temperature. We didn't have breakfast at the hotel. It looked as if there was a buffet on the Sunday, but we missed it as we were going out. On the Monday morning there was no buffet, it was a la carte only, so we gave it a miss - if you wanted fresh juice, a few coffees, fresh fruit & pastries, the breakfast cost would have been quite high. Overall, we were pleased with our stay. The location was perfect for us - the hotel backs directly on to the beach & does not have a busy noisy road between hotel & beach like hotels such as the Betsy. The room was really quiet although voices carried from people walking past our room during the night/early morning. I would highly recommend it for a short stay, and rate the location 5/5 but if we were going back to Miami beach for a longer, more leisurely stay, I would prefer to choose a hotel with more luxurious rooms.
