Reviewed October 13, 2012

nice hotel in a great position, rooms are ok not top class but comfortable, nice garden area to sit and relax but any one seems to be able to walk in at night and just take a seat. the position of the hotel is execellent minutes walk from the beach, bars, restaraunts and shops.

Easy way to look as the cheapest option. They put a low price on websites an then you find that they charge you $12 dollars PER DAY as "hotel fee" (and also you must add the 13% sales tax + 3% county tax and the 3% state tax)
I asked what that fee was for and the answer was "Just the hotel fee, you can check on the confirmation of the website you purchased". and yes, it does say that they will charge you an extra fee that is not even settled.
That means they can overcharge you whatever they want as "hotel fee". I have been in better hotels with lower fee´s and they do publish the amount that will be charged and why.

The hotel was OK until I saw this. Not the best deal at all.

Lots of spiderwebs on the windows.

NOT COMING BACK

Room Tip: Very noisy street, not very thick windows.

All we really need is a clean room. Our room looked like it was recently remodeled and we may have been the first to stay in it. Very Clean. They were busy and this is the off season. You can tell when a business is being actively managed or is on cruise control. The stock in this property is on it's way up. We will definitely give them another try.

The worst were the two guys, that call themselves Concierge's. Very low level people, that always try to flirt with female guests and they make stupid comments if someone books any activities through other agencies. The Hotel management should really observe if this 2 guys are not giving the hotel a bad reputation. several (younger) women complained.
The best of the hotel is its complimentary breakfast.

Room Tip: if possible courtside, the rooms to the street are very noisy

We stayed here on a mini vacation for our anniversary. The rooms and bathroom was VERY small. I will say that it was extremely CLEAN!! We stayed during the Olympics and wanted to catch some of the events on tv. Needless to say, the tv reception was terrible! In this day and age there is no excuse for not having a crystal clear picture. There were a couple of other items that bothered us...namely the A/C. It only had one fan setting which was high. No matter what setting you put it on...it still blew very high and was noisy. The shower curtain was too short and caused the floor to get wet when taking a shower. The other thing that needs to be updated are the pillows. My neck is still hurting. The front desk clerk, Jeribeth, was very nice and accommodating. We would probably stay there again due to the cleanliness of the room and the location. Right in the heart of South Beach. Don't waste money on Valet parking..there is a parking garage just a block from the hotel.

Based on the internet description (breakfast, bathrobes!) I expected a place with a bed and breakfast feel. Did not happen. Our room was in a courtyard and up a steep outdoor staircase. The room had a bed, a night table, a tv with a few channels and that was it. There were no drawers so we had to live out of the suitcase. I have never before been in a hotel room without furniture. There were also no bathrobes. The breakfast had signs warning to take only one of each item. The wifi was out the entire time we were there (5 nights). On Friday night, they attracted a large crowd of rowdy drinkers which we had to pass in order to get in and out of our room. We did not feel safe. It is only 1 block from a beautiful beach and close to Lincoln Road shopping and restaurants.

Great location. Clean room, light continental breakfast and available valet parking for a fee. One block from the beach and ocean avenue. Great shopping on Collins avenue. Older building so I was alitte concerned on the 3 person elevator limit but would definitely return.
