“Great Stay!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

I stayed here with a friend for 5 nights in the superior kind suite. The room was amazing, very clean, and large i was pleasantly surprised especially after reading the reviews. I cannot say enough about the staff, they were beyond helpful and nice. We were not able to check-in early, but they held our bags until it was time to check-in which was very convenient. The location of this hotel is beyond PERFECT, it was only a block from the beach and a few blocks from Lincoln road. Also, while you are there I recommend hitting up Zesto's across the street for a quick bite!

Room Tip: Get a room in the villas portion of the hotel!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

We only stayed one night here, but I was a little worried after reading some of the bad reviews. We were so relieved when we opened the door to our room. I thought this place was really cool!! They did not charge us any extra "resort fees" other people have written about on here. We paid $25 for them to valet park our car for the night which we thought was totally worth it. The staff was very friendly, easy check in, our room was very clean and huge!! Full sized refrigerator with a small kitchen and microwave. The bathroom was huge too. The continental breakfast was nothing special, but what more do you want people? At least you can grab a cup of coffee and a banana to get you going.
The Location was great, as I said we only had one night in South Beach so we just walked around and explored! I would stay here again and would recommend to anyone.

We appreciate your gracious feedback. We are glad you did take the time to experience the hotel for yourself and are even more pleased that you had an enjoyable stay. We do have a resort fee; however depending on where you booked your room it may or may not be included in your prepaid package. Majority of our guests pay this fee directly to the hotel at the time of check-in. Parking is very costly in South Beach. This is because most hotels must rely on valet services for parking. Come and visit with us again!

You don't have to spend a fortune to have a good time in South Beach. Hotel is reasonably priced, and the concierge is particularly helpful with restaurant reservations, parking suggestions, and tours of any kind. Many languages are spoken here, and the location is one block off the beach.
Their front porch sitting area allows great people-watching and shelters guests from sudden rain storms.

Room Tip: Get a room facing the courtyard; street-facing rooms are noisy.

Decent hotel - nice and clean rooms. Could have more bright lighting in the room. But the decor of the room is good. Rooms are clean and spacious and very friendly and helpful staff. Parkign as expected is a problem in miami beach - but the hotel staff give honest options for street parking or valet depending on your requirements and stay

I stayed there with my son in Oct. 2012. It is a very nice hotel with a bit of a morrocean theme to it. Our room was a suite with a king bed and full kitchen. It is very updated and modern. They have a free continental breakfast at the bar every morning. The only real problem I had was the noisiness but i know that wasn't the hotels fault. It's less than a block away from the beach and close to a parking garage. Very nice location where you can walk to everything including Washington Ave. Where there are some pretty hip places to shop and eat.
