It was only one night but it was fantastic.
We'd booked two a week holiday with a night in Miami, a 6 night cruise followed by a week in Clearwater Beach. We didn't particularly choose this Hotel as it was booked on the recommendation of the agent. (Virgin Holidays Abingdon.
We'd had the usual 9 hour flight from London and took ages getting through the formalities at Miami Airport. They had a big sign saying budget cuts had meant staff cuts and that meant you have to wait longer. Thanks!
We'd just about had enough by the time our taxi reached Ocean Drive.
Then we realised that it was Saturday night and everyone was out strolling or cruising. What an atmosphere. I think our mood started to change at that moment.
We entered the lobby and went to Reception.What a welcome!. I don't remember being greeted by such jovial, friendly and helpful people. we checked in and went up to the room. We weren't checked in as a seaview room but we were on the south side and could see out over the pool and terrace and across Ocean Drive and the beach to the sea. The room was comfy and spacious and although the original Art Deco features were there as we'd expected, there was no lack of modern creature comforts.
Next morning we went up to the roof terrace. What a stunning panorama. We could even see across to the Cruise Port which was our destination later that morning (6 nights on the Carnival Breeze to look forward to).
The staff were amazing. They took time to chat and answer questions. That and the Hotel's magical Art Deco features and atmosphere got us into holiday mood right away.
If you're looking for a classic Art Deco place on South Beach you won't beat this one.
