If location is everything, this hotel would be a "5" as it sits right in the center of South Beach, however, while it is recommended, it is not for everybody. In addition to its location, the positives include a very attentive staff, modern art deco surroundings and above average size rooms complete with a full size fridge, dual burner cook-top range, dishwasher and microwave. The negatives were a very tiny 23 in LCD TV, no desk (although there is a pull out table in the kitchen but no chairs!), uncomfortable furniture, and a lot of noise on my second floor room located farthest from the ocean and the South Beach Strip. Parking is steep (typical for South Beach) at $25/day for self-park and $34/day for valet, so save some money and park in the public garage less than 3 blocks away for just $20/weekday and $15/weekend day. For just $79/night on Hotwire (plus the $12.50/day dreaded resort fee) this is a very reasonably priced hip modern chic place to stay with a great staff and good location, but still falls short in a couple important respects. For a party or romantic weekend, it would be a fine choice; for anyone else, there are better choices.
