“Loved Everything About This Hotel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 days ago NEW

My husband and I are from California, and we currently work out of the country. We like to stop in South Beach for a few days between work and home. I loved absolutely everything about this hotel! This hotel is clean and fresh! I loved the room, loved how quiet the hotel is. The pool area was perfect. The beach associated with the hotel is just a short walk across the street. We took the bus from the airport. It was easy and about a 15 minute ride. The walk from the bus stop to the hotel was about half a block. This is a quieter part of South Beach, which I really liked. There is a Walgreens a few blocks away, and a couple of places to get quick food in the area. You can take another bus into the busier part of South Beach. The ride is about ten to fifteen minutes. But, the best part is just having a wonderful hotel to relax and enjoy. We go through Miami every year, and this is the place I want to be.

The hotel was OK, but the service in the restaurant was awful. When having dinner, the waitress brought us wrong food, and after we complained, she started to blaim us for the confusion, although without doubt the waitress had made the mistake. We promised to have the wrong dish if the price would be cheaper, but in the end the waitress brought us bill which was double the price of the original order, and did this all in an arrogant manner. After discussing with the manager the bill was finally corrected, and the explanation was that the waitress was a new worker. As a compensation, we got two small bottles of water! Next morning we went in the same restaurant for breakfast, which should start at 7 am, but we had to wait half an hour, because it was ready only at 7.30.

We encountered some of the same issues described by other reviewers. For example, why add an additional charge for Internet service that is exceedingly slow. If I am being charged, I expect the service to work flawlessly. Second, we also were told the breakfast was included at check-in and then discovered it wasn't by staff seemingly intent on embarrassing us at breakfast telling us (and all the other guests) that it wasn't. Lovely..... Fortunately, at check-out our bill was adjusted to reflect some of these shortcomings.

On the plus side, the rooms were clean and bright, the garden and pool area was pleasant and staff in the hotel bar were professional and courteous.

As an aside, we visited the La Ventura mall via bus (traffic was horrible so we left the car parked). You can take the S or 120 bus lines, but the 120 is MUCH faster.

On the surface, the hotel is lovely. Newly renovated rooms, and updates decor - but thin walls that allow for noise and disruption. Internet access advertised and paid for with additional fee, but so slow in the rooms that it is often useless. A breakfast cafe that was touted to be included at check-in but wasn't. Definitely an average stay as each positive was balanced by some aspects that require improvement.

While we were not guests of this hotel, we did dine at the outdoor cafe twice during our stay in Miami Beach as there were not a lot of dining choices close to our hotel on Collins Ave other than the pricey hotel restaurants. I thought the food was tasty and fresh. It's a nice option if you want to pop out for a quick bite but don't want to eat fast food or venture far from the beach.

We stayed at the hotel for two days and had a wonderful experience. Was clean, the staff were responsive and was overall good bang for the buck. It's very similar to European hotel ambiance, yet the rooms are somewhat bigger. My only reservation is that room had shower as opposed to bath, but don't know if that is all the rooms on the property or just some.

Room Tip: Ask for a room near the wifi as signal in our room was weak.
