This location is good if you want to be close to a beach access, within walking distance of the action, but far enough away that you can get some sleep if you want to. Beach and park are across the street as well as a Starbucks if you need to nurse your addiction.
I stayed at this hotel after a cruise to enjoy South Beach for an additional few days and found the staff to be amazingly warm and accommodating. If you have a wish, they will do everything they can to make it happen. This is also one of the very few hotels that offers some sort of breakfast, a little extra bonus if you stay. I also enjoyed the bathroom amenities-high quality shampoo, conditioner & soap-citrus scent so both men & women can use (just a tip to help you reduce packing additional liquids if traveling by air).
Room location is important, we were in room 103 & had noise from the hotel ice machine all night and the condensation line drained directly into our bathroom plumbing so it sounded like the toilet was running loudly constantly. The window in this room also faces the adjacent restaurant patio, so we had commotion until about 2 am. This will not bother people who are staying in odd numbered rooms beyond 105. At the time of our stay in January 2014, there appeared to be the beginnings of a foundation being prepared for new construction on a building to the even numbered room side-nothing was happening during our visit, but you may want to inquire prior to booking your reservation for noise purposes.
Would I stay here again? Yes, but not in room 103.
Was it a good bargain? It was one of the most affordably priced in South Beach and on Ocean Drive, so yes.
