I was thrilled to find this hotel online in what I consider the best neighborhood in Miami Beach. Having lived in Miami and been part of the up and coming of South Beach since the late 80s, I adore the area between 69th and 75th street since it really has that South Beach feeling from the early 90s. It is quiet, a bit run down, not entirely safe and just very laid back with a good choice of regular shopping and some good reasonably priced restaurants. The beach is fantastic uncrowded and friendly. Until the New Hotel opened it was just the Days Inn and some dingy motels around here, but now there is the fashionable, hip and friendly New hotel!
I arrived around 1pm and could not check in until 3, but was friendly met by Luis at the pool. The pool is great but there are no sun beds, which I was told would arrive later this month. I was staying in room 10, which is very large. It features an open kitchen (that has no equipment other than a small fridge) a very comfortable king bed and a small couch. The bathroom was beautiful with a shower. There was a flat screen TV and cable but not a lot of channels were available, which is a pity. The room and hotel look indeed very new and clean but I was missing some typical and small features that would make the hotel complete. But the great thing about a hotel this size is that you just mention it to the owners and really have the feeling they will follow up on it. Another charming aspect of this hotel is that you automatically socialize with the other quests without having the B&B feeling of that you have to talk to them.
The hotel provides beach towels and beach chairs and that makes it a great choice if you just want to do the beach. Guests that expect to be in the middle of the South Beach non-stop party may be disappointed, it is quite a distance from there. But if you are here to relax, rest, unwind, socialize and to top up on your tan, you just won't have a better choice than the New Hotel.
