Right next to the beach (2 min walk) and just close enough to all the night life on south beach without all the noise! A special thanks to Jose who made our stay perfect!

We spent 3 nights in this hotel and had an amazing time. The rooms are neat and spacious. Our only point of (minor) critique was that the A/C in our room was cranked up to a chilling 64°F. You can luckily control this yourself though. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We made use of valet parking provided by... More

Nice staff, clean rooms and excellent location with short distance to South Beach. Also beach towels & chairs included. No extra noises since we didn't have a window towards Ocean dr. Rooms had individual art paintings also.

It is a very cool hotel with very nice staff. The beds were very comfortable and the location is fantastic. You are close to all the bars, restaurants and nightclubs but far enough to get a great night sleep. They give towels for the beach and have an area with lounge chairs and umbrellas for the hotels guests. When I... More
