Location! Location! Location! This boutique hotel couldn't be placed in a better location for visiting South Beach. It's perched on Ocean Avenue amidst a string of eclectic hotels and restaurants, with beach views from the front of the hotel. Full on interior and exterior South Beach Art Deco is the second best feature of the hotel. The front desk staff were over the top friendly and the restaurant staff accommodating, while being run off of their feet. An evening cocktail and slim pickings, continental breakfast (offered at the hotel across the back alley) were included with the mandatory resort fee. The hotel itself left something to be desired: linens were sparse, pillows horrific, walls were thin, room entrance doors had gaps, furnishings were worn out, plumbing was loud and there was no remote control for the TV. If you don't mind paying a hefty price for location, then this is the place for you. If you expect a few amenities and a decent sleep, then perhaps this is not the place to stay.
