My husband and I stayed at this hotel over Labor Day weekend 2013 in the Amber Suite. The reservation process went smoothly. I booked online but then due to some travel plan changes called the hotel to switch some dates around. They were extrememly helpful in helping me, being accomdating, and explaining the changes in price. Upon arrival check in was fast and efficient. I arrived early at 1pm but my room was ready and my luggage was very quickly taken to my room. There were free welcome drinks and complementary sparkling wine and chocolate covered strawberries. Lori at the front desk greated me by name every time I walked by. She was absolutely amazing.
The best part of the room was the amazing bathroom that overlooked the beach. The tub was comfy and the separate glass shower were both big enough for two and had the best ocean view of any hotel that I have stayed in in the US.
The food is good but a bit pricey. Some people complained about the noise. I thought it was Ok on the 9th floor and I slept great with the windows closed. For those who complained about it, it is South Beach and noise from the awesome night life is expected. I never used the pool because it was tiny and ticked away but it's Miami Beach so I mich rather go to the beach anyway. Housekeeping was great. They cleaned our room twice a day.
I would recommend this hotel based on outstanding quality and location. You can walk to everything in South Beach! This trip was a splurge for my husband and I so we went all out for the suite. We would definitely come back on a regular vacation stay in one of the regular rooms.
