My wife and I stayed 4 nights for the AAD conference. Friendly employees, the concierge was quite helpful educating me as to transportation options. Being located at 39th, it is a long walk to South Beach, so you're either taking a bus, taxi, or bike rental. Room was clean, bathroom very small, we were in 127 with a nice view of the pool area. Nice bar and nice pool area. We had lunch at the restaurant, high end cafe quality. Per other reviewers, we skipped the $9.95 breakfast buffet, nothing special based on my visual assessment. For breakfast, I highly recommend the Primo Market next door. They do an awesome egg/bacon/cheese bagel, and nice cuban coffee. Easy walk to the beach (though they had record cold temps during our stay), with free use of the Bluefin beach chair service, though if you want an umbrella, its $10, and they want cash. Here are some minor improvement opportunities: maid service occurred between 4-5pm, and I called the front desk on it twice. I was told that's how they do it, last priority to those staying on, vs rooms checking out. Not a huge deal, but would prefer my room made up in the morning. Our iron was cracked and leaked water all over one of my sweaters, and the floor when I tried to use it. I wrapped it in a towel and was able to "Macgyver" it. I told the front desk we needed a replacement iron, upon returning 6 hours later, it had not been done. When our maid came by, around 4:30 pm, she took care of it. They could use a coffee set up in the morning. We departed between 6 and 8am, there was nothing! This next one is a "good news/bad news". Kudos that they offer complimentary wireless internet!! Unfortunately, it is painstakingly sloooowwww (less than 1Mb/s download speed, ala "dial-up). We tried to stream a movie, it would run for 20 sec, stop for 5-10 seconds. They need to fix that. All in all, good value for the money.
