We weren't sure what to expect being in South Beach especially as it was Christmas. The first room presented to us had an awful view and we felt it was not acceptable for our 4 day stay here. The hotel, however, did offer us a different room which overlooked the road and this was better. It was very noisy at night although the member of staff did warn us of this but nevertheless it was ok. The room was very clean and the bed was really comfortable; the shower and bathroom were good. It was let down by, in my opinion, not enough storage, very small wardrobe and the lighting was not good - everywhere seemed dark.
The pool area was on the roof top and was excellent and the girls who looked after it were really nice.
We did eat at the hotel as we found that eating in South Beach wa expensive and the hotel food was not badly priced for the area and was good. Breakfast did seem a little dis-jointed - you asked for 3 poached eggs on toast which was on the menu and only 2 turned up. You then asked for the 3rd egg and you eventually got 3! Amazing! The staff however were really good and very friendly but I think the kitchen needs to get its act together as it took a long while to get anything.
Overall the hotel was good - well refurbished and very clean. We had never stayed in Miami before and I think we can honestly say that we would not stay there again as everything was at a cost - the whole area did seem to rip you off.
