Good location. Good breakfast. Hotel was being renovated at present no pool no parking. Disappointed. May be better after renovation but we were told that it had been renovated we weren't expecting to stay on a building site. The lady who served breakfast was only interested in looking at herself in the mirror and looking at her phone she was not interested in customers at all. William Morales was helpful.

I had been in a lot of south beach hotels and something that you need to know about the place it is that is expensive, parking is limited and again $$$$, so I took the express bus from the airport and in less than half and hour I was about 20 yards from the hotel so even with my bags was a grate spot.

It is about 2 short blocks from the beach but the location is the the middle of the action, clubs and restaurants but also it is quiet and you can have a good sleep. Most of the hotels on the area for that price are old or a dump and I was expecting the worst because of the mixed reviews but to my luck I had a great stay, the lobby was nice and also the clerk was a lady that I dont remember but she was friendly and also at check out i had a nice chat.

The hotel has a nice pool and for south beach it is a luxury to have one and very nice after a day on the beach to refresh on the beach, also they provide you beach towels and the are seems fresh, inviting.

Overall it is a great place to stay for the price that you pay, I got a great deal and for sure I will be there if I can get the same rate.

We stayed here at the start of our honeymoon to see a bit of Miami. We were upgraded because of this which was a nice touch. The rooms are fine, a little dated but they have tried to updated with brightly coloured walls and art deco style. The best thing about this hotel is the location, it's literally 2 minutes walk from South Beach itself and the bars and restaurants etc. I guess the draw back to it being so centrally located is that it's quite loud at night time. Definitely worth a visit, a great base to stay for a short break.

The hotel is very close to sea. The room was quite good and well maintained. The hotel lobby staff are quite friendly. They also suggested a good restaurant for lunch. The breakfast they served was good but that does not fall in to Wyndham category.

This is a lovely place to stay. It boasts a great location - just a few minutes walk from the beach. It's close to all the main attractions, bars & clubs and it's about 15 minutes walk from Lincoln (the main shopping precinct).

The rooms are relatively small but all Art Deco Hotels are the same. Our bed was comfy and the room was always clean. Breakfast was nice each morning and all the staff seemed friendly & accommodating.

Will definitely stay here again.

The Garden sits at Washington ( 2 blocks from Ocean Dr ) and 11th. Pool, Continental Brkfst, Valet Park., accomodating front desk staff. Plenty of food in every walking direction. Rooms are good for just two peeps so don't have kids. Rooms could be modernized but they are clean and colorful. Entire staff are friendly and courteous. Pricing is good for value and amenities. Safe neighborhood.

Room Tip: Stay in main building, preferably facing north or east.
