I chose the Breakwater for location and was pleasantly surprised with the hotel. The interior is completely updated and tastefully decorated – the rooms are true to the website pictures and are clean and loaded with amenities (in-room Keurig machine, wine bottle w/ drinking glasses etc.) and the bathroom was breathtaking – enormous double rain-head shower in a full glass enclosure. I also like the contrast of the modern interior with the original façade (I love the Art Deco style but most hotels whose interior reflects that era are cramped and grungy –this was the best of both worlds) The beach is right across the street and they provide chairs and umbrellas and along this section of South Beach is where most of the lively night clubs and restaurants are (Clevelander, Mangos etc.) so everything is within walking distance. Of course the party crowd is noisy into the night so if you are looking for a quiet tranquil hotel, this is probably not your best choice. The staff is also friendly and very helpful.
