We visited a lot of different hotels while in South Beach, and were so happy we had booked our stay with Z Ocean. The other hotels along the same Calibur (SLS, Delano, etc) were around the same price, but we got a much better value at Z Ocean: bigger rooms, better more personable service, and our private jacuzzi on the roof! (Tip: Do not go to the roof to look at the jacuzzi or furniture until after they set it up. There's a reason they put towels on the patio furniture - its very old and outdated with rips and stains all over it)
The front desk staff and concierge were very helpful and seemed to know everyone by name. We got to the hotel at 7am, and by 10am they had a room ready for us. Unfortunately, the room that was ready at 10am was one of the rooms that was facing the empty lot next door. We called and asked to switch rooms, and they said there was nothing available but to check later in the afternoon at normal check in time... and guess what? They moved us then.
The Front Porch also had an amazing happy hour deal: $5 appetizers and half priced drinks. I think we had happy hour there almost every day! The bartenders are great, so if having happy hour, please be sure to leave an extra tip on top of the 20%, since it's based on the half price discont you're receiving.
Only complaint is that the pool really isn't a fun place to hang out, but who needs a pool when you have the beach across the street!
