Gale vs The Hotel

Looking for a 3.5/4.0 star hotel in South Beach for 1st week of April for under $200 a night. .

Wish list: Very close to beach, middle of the action and nice pool.

I looked at both the Gale and The Hotel of South Beach. Both look great and with promotional rates, I can get just under $200 a night. Which one would you stay at?? Does anyone know of any other hotel I can stay at that meets my wish list? I know most of the hotel rooms in South Beach we all small. We are just staying for 2 nights and basically need a place to sleep (with a nice pool) =)

I'd pick the much newer Gale - the rooftop pool is pretty sweet.

Thanks AG! My concerns about the Gale is the location. Do you think its too North away from the action? Also, you have to go to the Shelborne Hotel to pick up beach chairs...is this a hassle? The Hotel of South Beach has a beach person set the big, cozy chairs up for you....no carrying them. What do you think? Thanks sooooo much!

The Gale is across the street from the beach but is in the very center of the action (closer to Lincoln Road Mall).

I do not know about the chair-setter-upper person at the Gale ~ sorry.
