This boutique hotel was great! The staff were so helpful. The concierge suggested some great places to dine nearby and the bellman were quick to please. The room was beautiful! I had an amazing view of Collins Avenue and the swanky décor was what you would expect in South Beach. I stayed here for work. I got a rate mid week of $117 a night. That is insane. I would never guess a rate to be so low for the location and the atmosphere. The restaurant and bar next door are so convenient. The margaritas were so-so, but the food and wait staff were great! I highly recommend this hotel. It's located near everything and the small resort fee they tack on is well worth it....they have a section on the beach where the wait-staff set up a towel, chairs, and umbrellas for you. It definitely is a gem in South Beach!

I had an amazing stay at this hotel, from the friend staff to perfectly clean room. This was perfect location, just block away from the beach. So any restaurants to choice from, I think I ate at a different restaurant every night. I love the night life. The roof top pool was nice. I will definitely stay here again and again!!!!!!!

Room Tip: Upgrade to a Jr suite for more space in the room.

Dream hotel is amazing !!! Cant beat the location. I spent the night with my girlfriend and they hooked us up for our 4 year Anni. The rooms are undescribable and so unique down to the colors and lighting in them. i usually don't stay at boutique hotels but i decided to give it a chance and I'm happy i did. The pool is small but its very nice especially being on the roof. Also wanted to say that the staff, down to the trash man was very polite and outgoing. Dream is my new getaway spot ! and i highly recommend it !!!

Wow, what can I say about this place. I was there last week with my best friend for 5 days. This hotel is absolutely beautiful, the rooms are perfect, clean and the style is so pretty.
We had such an amazing time and everyone that works there is soo friendly! Special thanks to the housekeeping who cleaned our room, reception and concierge team for their help on where to go etc and to Ben and Mariano at the Naked Taco! The food was amazing and they all looked after us.

We can't wait to come back!

The location is fantastic - you're a block away from the beach, and all the best spots in South Beach are a short walk away. The rooftop pool area is expansive, though the pool is pretty small and heats up in the late afternoon to the temperature of lukewarm bathwater. Fortunately I was here in August so it wasn't too packed. Food and drink prices for the hotel were reasonable, as were (surprisingly) the minibar prices. The Etro bath amenities were nice - body lotion was fantastic. No ice in the rooms/floors but when you call room service to deliver it, it arrives within 5 minutes. With regards to the room, I have two thoughts: 1) Only book this place if you are in a romantic relationship and 2) Only book this room if you don't care what your makeup looks like. I recommend #1 because they only have 4 rooms in the whole hotel with double beds (so it's really hard to get one), and because bathrooms are all glass (the front is opaque glass, but still), and the wall of the shower (which is glass) is also the wall for the hallway leading out the room. This means that whoever is sharing the room with you is trapped in the bedroom area if you don't want them seeing you in the nude when they try to exit the room. All that glass also has an amplifying effect on, you know, bathroom needs. So if you have any bathroom needs that don't involve going #1, the entire room is going to hear it VERY LOUDLY. With regards to #2, the rooms are lit with mood lighting so it's difficult to see much. This can be a good thing if you have a passion for dimly lit rooms (I mean hey doesn't everyone look good in the dark?), but in my case, it was a comedy routing trying to do my makeup to go out on the town. I ended up trying to catch any light reflecting off of any surface (closet, minibar mirror, etc.) in an effort to get better lighting which I'm sure you can imagine worked really well;-p I wasn't sure if I'd end up looking like a clown or what, but was relying on my friends to tell me if I did. The rooms are equipped with a bevy of different light buttons (as opposed to switches), all of which have some sort of symbol on them which is supposed to tell you what they do but in reality is pretty much unintelligible. They tried to fix this fact by providing you with a 'light switch menu', which would be helpful if it wasn't so dark you couldn't read it. I told this to the front desk manager when I checked out, who informed me that they are working on better lighting for the rooms as well as lighted vanity mirrors. So when that's updated I'll be back, because I had great service and a wonderful time.
