Great place to stay. I've stayed here a few times already. Very clean place with pleasant staff. Right in the middle of the fun. Mangos cafe and is just a few feet away. Nothing but shopping and eating. All in close proximity to the hotel. Right across the street from the beach. I highly recommended this place.

Great service, staff very cool and accomodating. Reasonable prices, considering the area. Rooms are very cool, spacious and well... More

This hotel is nice and modern, and the rooms were pretty nice as well. I traveled with my boyfriend and 1 year old daughter, so if you have small kids it's really not the place (I knew that beforehand). It is very loud because it is right on the Ocean Drive strip. It's a great location for the price. We... More

Very professional and friendly staff, the only thing I could mention was breakfast, which could include a bit more options to choose from, however in general great place. I loved the fact that I could take the bike... More

Great location, couldn't have been any closer to the beach, shops or restaurants. The hotel was immaculate and you could tell they took pride in the appearance of the staff and the hotel. The food/drink in the rooms were slightly expensive (but that's Miami for you). Pool wasn't the best but they had obviously made the most of the space... More
