Loved this hotel! Beachfront on Ocean Dr. in the heart on South Beach. Very cool vibe, art deco building with a unique, retro decor. It was not your typical, generic resort feel but full of character and beautifully designed. Everything is a little smaller as it is an original art deco building from the 1920's but the interiors are so interesting and all of the rooms have a different theme, ours was nautical with a lot of industrial elements. The wall the bed was on was covered with old canvas sails. The beds were a bit firm for our liking but everything else was great. They give you a voucher for a free cocktail at happy hour and the "people watching" on the sidewalk cafe was priceless. Service was good too, only issue was a disconnect with valet about fetching our car but it was not a big deal. Definitely recommend this hotel.
