The hotel's location was excellent. Walking was a lot to see and a taxi to the main shopping centers, convenience. The air conditioner was horrible and really loud. The pool area lived cute pet lizard.

I simply loved the hotel for several reasons. 1. The excellent service and kindness provided by the staff. 2. The Cleanliness of the hotel and rooms 3. The location was perfect with access into the beach as well to Lincoln Rd. I highly recommend this hotel if you're going to vacation in South Beach Miami.

This hotel has an excellent location in South Beach, and very friendly and attentive bilingual staff. The pool was very attractive, and the beach was just steps away (with private chairs for hotel guests). The hotel itself is a beautiful Art Deco property.
