We stayed here in July of 2013, and we actually booked the President for our trip this year... Until Andrew the attendant heard it was our anniversary and upgraded us to an ocean-view room at the Penguin, the sister hotel one block away.
Based on our previous stay, we can say the rooms are quite similar to the Penguin's: small and simple, but adequate. However, I liked the shower stalls better at the President, and the bathroom definitely had more space in general.
Breakfast was pretty good, and the bartender made great conversation in the evening. If you want to be in the Art Deco district but don't want the horrendous noise of the 6-10 St. area on the oceanfront, this is a great place to get a good night's sleep while still being close to everything that makes South Beach wonderful.
Not five-star quality, but those kinds of hotels in Miami Beach don't preserve the local style and flair like this one does.
