I stayed here with my sister in July for my sisters 23rd birthday and we had an absolutely amazing 5 days. We wanted a hotel close to the beach and ocean drive, a pool, nice rooms and affordable and this hotel ticked all of those boxes.
The hotel is in a great location in a quiet street just off of the Main Street which follows down to the beach and ocean drive where all the bars, restaurants and amazing nightlife is. The beach is a 5-10 minute walk away and we got in a cab to ocean drive from the man street which was a 5 minute taxi ride for $5 so for us perfect location! Shopping is also really close by (approx 5-10 minute walk). Overall, close to restaurants and bars but not right in the business of all the clubs/bars.
The hotel itself was nicely decorated and rooms were very clean, modern and comfortable, perfect for our 4 night stay. Our towels were changed daily and all toiletries topped up.
The pool was not massive but perfect just to lay around and sunbath and to cool off in. Pool was clean and sun beds were some of the most comfortable sun beds I've experienced. The restaurant (well I would call it more of a pool side bar) was very nice too. They had a tap with iced water with lemon and lime in which we could help ourselves to all day which was lovely as it was so hot! We ate lunch here most days and the food was nice. We had pizzas and toasted sandwiches and salads mainly and they were very nice. We wouldn't have eaten dinner here though as there are lots of great restaurants in south beach.
The staff were very friendly. the two women at the front desk were really nice and advised us with places to go to eat and also on what bars to go to. The concierge (can't remember his name now!) was so nice and he also advised us on where to go. Towels were given by the pool which was handy too.
Miami was amazing and we will definitely be returning and will definitely stay at this hotel again!! Thank you for a great stay!!
