My husband and I spent a fantastic week in miami in February 2013. The weather was great and the hotel was as described. Very deco with the most fantastic pool. The restaurant and bar area were beautiful and the service impeccable. We ate at the hotel on our first and last nights in Miami (valentines day) and found the food to be of a high standard although the wine list was, in our opinion, over priced.
The only problem with the hotel was the walls were paper thin. We heard every conversation and ablution of our neighbours. On one night, our neighbours came in at 3 am and decided to have a mini party in their room. We called the front desk and security came straight away (we could here them too!). Despite this the noise continued and by 5 am we gave up and asked to be moved to another room for the night. Reception were very accommodating and apologetic but they did say that the lack of sound proofing was a common complaint. We think they should put signs up in the rooms reminding guests to be considerate of their neighbours.
So, in short, fabulous hotel in many ways but we would never stay there again as I really hate hearing other people's noise. I value peace and quiet too much.
