We stayed here twice in November 2012. First stay was 4 nights (room 103) and the second stay was 1 night (room 206).
First impressions were very good. A small boutique hotel, located perfectly in Miami Beach. Within walking distance of everything! The staff was excellent, especially the ladies who work there! Helpful in every way, they even took care of 2 packages we had sent to the hotel.
Room 103 is very nice indeed. A king sized bed and a nice big bathroom which had just been renovated. If I had to find a fault with it it would be that it is close to the lobby and you hear everything that happens there. People talking, coming back late at night etc. Perhaps some of that door tape on the inside of the door frame would help?
Our second stay was only 1 night and we stayed in room 206, upstairs. Nice also but a lot smaller than 103 with a smaller bed too. Just enough for 2 suitcases on the floor. These rooms have the advantage of less noise (there is a door at the top of the stairs that quietens it a lot (when it is closed!) Wi-fi reception is sometimes weak in the rooms but in the lobby it is perfect.
The beds are fantastic! So is the linnen!
All in all a very nice stay and a hotel we would recommend to friends.
