Overall this is a fine, budget boutique oriented place to stay in a great SoBe location one block from beach and surrounded by bars, restaurants and shops all in walking distance. I had a room on the third floor front with good light and a decent view, it was pretty quiet despite looking over Collins Ave. There's a nice big flatscreen TV and a minifridge, however, no drawers are provided for clothes so you have to place them on the closet shelf, there's certainly enough room to have even a small dresser so the hotel should provide one. Also much needed is a comfortable chair to sit in, not the 2 aluminum desk chairs provided that are painful after a couple of minutes sitting in them. Again the room is big enough for a lounge or club style chair so the hotel should provide one (the deluxe king rooms/suites have them). The bathroom is decent and has a rain shower with slate-like tiles providing some style, with plenty of new towels. The queen size bed is comfy enough, but the base is very squeaky and should be replaced. All in all not bad for a budget boutique with few frills considering the price paid, so I'd stay again, It'd be very easy for the management to upgrade this hotel a bit as mentioned - with new chairs and dressers in rooms, so they should just do it. For anyone who appreciates architecture the building itself is an art deco gem with some great details from that era, just like much of SoBe.
