Hotel is two minutes walk from beach, five minutes to starbuck's & many restaurant, clubs & shopping. Perfect when you want to leave car in hotel garage after paying $25 a day! Takes only 10minutes by taxi cost approx $20 to Downtown Miami, American Airlines Arena. Room & furnishings are dated but service at reception by Sebastian & bellhop Kevon was exceptional. Walgreen opposite the hotel is still under construction, would be nice when it's up & running. Tours can be arranged in hotel by Monty... Be sure to bargain on the cost like I did! :) Usual $45 city & boat tour went down to $40 per person. Yay!
Be sure to check price on drinks in some restaurants on Ocean Drive...my frozen magharita end up served in a salad bowl size glass with 2 opened beer bottles struck in it & costing a whopping $60 when all I asked for was a "magharita please" totally undrinkable as I do not like the taste of beer. I wish I could remember the name of the restaurant as my bill came up to $209 for appetizer & a drink. Highway robbery!!! When questioned waiters & manager were suddenly unresponsive. At 1:30am I was too tired to argue. Overall, hotel was sufficient for a 2 nights stay but area is absolutely gorgeous. Perfect.
