This is an interesting little apartment-style hotel near South Beach. It has basic amenities as well as a few extras, which proved to be useful.
Probably a good value relative to the other area hotels. While I have not been in the others, based on the area and what I see of the exterior maintenance, those hotels are likely way overpriced. This one is overpriced compared to hotels in other parts of the country, but location drives the cost.
A block from the beach and close to many restaurants.
Dishes (plates, small cups, small wine glasses), a minifridge, hot plate, hair dryer, and a reasonably-sized room.
Beach towels provided
The microwave was not plugged in, so when I went to use it, it of course did not work. The interior light was on and it claimed the closed door was still open. The desk manager of course offered to check it out, but it was a one-time use and it would have been inconvenient to wait (warming a sandwich while watching a game).
It is a noisy area. There is nothing the hotel can do about that, but the air conditioner did not help since it cycled on and off so frequently and was very noisy itself. A constant noise would have been better (white noise).
No facial tissues? Really?
The floor is hard faux wood which looks nice, but apparently does not clean real well. Lots of hair in the corners when we arrived. The bathroom is designed to be quick mopped, but the door must be cheap because it is rotting at the bottom likely from being mopped with water so many times.
The towels are all small and the beach towels are insufficient for keeping you out of the sand. Rent chairs on the beach.
The smoking area is the only access/egress from the hotel. If you don't smoke, it is obnoxious or maybe just noxious.
