A friend and I stayed at the Viscay for two nights (room #4) in a room w/ kitchenette from Apr 29-May 1/06. This was our first time in South Beach and we picked this hotel because of the location and price. The location was perfect - right on Collins in the middle of all the action, steps from the beach, restaurants, and nightlife. Although I haven't stayed anywhere else in South Beach, the hotel itself seemed very old and although our room and the hallways were very clean, the floors were creaky, we could hear people walking in the room above us, there wasn't much sunlight in our room (from the window we could only see the alley between our hotel and the building nextdoor), the room had an odd but tolerable smell, the furniture was old and cheap looking and the couch was stained, and our bathroom lacked a shower head. One positive was the bed - a very comfortable Queen - and I was happy that the bathroom was clean and we were given plenty of fresh towels each day. If you are looking for a classy place with a nice looking room, this place is probably not for you. If you won't be spending much time in the room and all you are really concerned about is location, price, and basic cleanliness, the Viscay is an ok option. There is no parking, pool or elevator at this hotel and the front desk guy (I think he is the manager/owner as well) was kinda rude and unfriendly.
