This a lovely boutique hotel. It’s very modern and the controls in the room like light switches, opening drapes, lighting colour, TV are controlled by an iPad which they give you upon check-in. You can use it to access the internet for free. The service I received when I arrived was lovely, friendly, professional and helpful. I was checked in by a lovely girl who made me feel so welcome and the reception smells so good, they had some sort of lovely refreshing spa aroma smell going on. I caught the bus from the airport to the hotel for like $2.50 and it stops about one block away so it was very convenient.
I was upgraded to a bigger room for free and allowed to check in early. The room was lovely and spacious. I really loved the selection of different colours for the lighting. It was studio with a separate lounge area with a couch. The bathroom was very clean and modern, it had a very large shower with very good pressure. The hotel is located one block away from Ocean Drive right in the heart and action of South Beach, it’s a very short walk. I travelled on my own and felt safe even at night. There are a million eating places near the hotel. The beach is only one block away and you can easily walk to Lincoln Road Mall
Earlier reviews mentioned the studio in the hotel which can play loud music into the night, I heard it maybe once and it did not spoil my holiday, it’s South Beach in Miami after all, people do not go there for peace and quiet. I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough, it was right up my alley (modern, clean, safe, location, service), anyone who makes a booking will not be disappointed. FYI a taxi ride from the hotel to the airport was $35. The staff members were all so friendly and I really really enjoyed my stay
