Stayed at the hotel with my husband for 4 days in April from a Wednesday to Sunday (first time in Miami). In terms of hotel service I didn't feel the staff we spoke to were overly friendly or helpful - not rude either, just not what we've come to expect from American service. When we checked in we didn't really get advised where breakfast would be, what amenities the hotel had or even a 'welcome' to Miami - not always needed but would have added to our experience. I've read previous reviews which have badged the hotel as 'shabby chic' and I think that's what they are going for here. I normally like minimalistic style however the rooms were just very sparse with no comforts at all. The breakfast was good and hotel was generally very clean. The location of the hotel was perfect for us - really close to the beach (2 min walk) and a 10-15 minute walk away from good restaurants either on Ocean Drive or Lincoln Rd Bvld. The main issue for us with this stay was that on the Thursday and Friday nights of our stay we were wakened 3 times each night (starting around 3am) by the fire alarm. Now these things happen however 2 nights in a row spoiled our experience. There was little explanation or apology from the staff at the front desk however one of the gentlemen did try to explain that the system that operates the fire alarm is linked to a local nightclub and when they have a power surge then it triggers the alarm in the hotel. If you plan to stay on a weekend and want some sort of sleep I would take some ear plugs! We have since complained via expedia and received a 50% discount in our rate which shows that the hotel knows that this is an issue. Miami was excellent just a shame about the hotel.
