We stayed at the Setai for Presidents' Day weekend in 2011. The hotel is very nice, with a very luxurious and cool feel and an asian theme. Great location, right on the beach in the northern part of south beach, and right near a bunch of other hotels that also have lounges and restaurants (w, gansevoort, shore club, Delano).
Overall, it was great, though I do have two complaints. First, the hotel, though full, felt a little dead. It lacked the happening vibe of some of those other hotels nearby. Second, the service was a little lacking. We didn't get that personalized touch that we expect for this category hotel, and while I appreciate the keeping with the Asian theme, very often the people at the front desk couldn't understand what we were saying (an vice versa) in English.
I would still recommend the Setai - the positives outweigh the negatives - but they do have room to improve a bit.
