If it wasn't on South Beach, there would be no reason to stay there. I think this place pretty much trades off of that and it's notoriety, because there is nothing else going for it. Our room phone and clock didn't work (and the phone was kind of grimey to begin with), a request for a wake-up call was ignored, and the desk staff would go missing for several minutes at a time (which was kind of disconcerting since the hotel is generally pretty wide open to whoever wants to walk in). The room and hotel itself was generally pretty clean, though the cleanser smell was so thick it seemd like someone was trying to cover up some kind of odor. There were also strange odors in the stairways. While the art deco hotel is a unique concept in a lot of ways, it seems like boutique/upscale/unique hotel companies like Kimpton have these folks beat hands down.
