We spent 11 unforgettable nights in this hotel from the 25th Sep. till the 6th Oct. 13. Astonishingly polite personnel met us at the front desk and hardly a couple of minutes after we were escorted to our room. That was Room 500, The last from the elevator on the 5th floor, facing the roof terrace. The room had a balcony where I could smoke, which was very convenient. After the beach we would leave our bathing suits there to dry. The room itself was a little bit dark, but if you unfasten the curtains it would become light. Good for a midday nap :-) It's spacious, clean. Looks to have been renovated recently. Cosy sitting area in front of the TV. I even fell asleep a few times there on the couch. We did not watch the satellite TV much. There was an HDMI cable, so we watched on-line stuff from the lap-top. Thanks for hi-speed wireless internet. Almost forgot to say there was a bottle of champagne in the ice when we first came to the room, a very decent welcome drink, must admit! The room is also equipped with a kitchen - an electric stove, a microwave oven, a sink, a fridge. All the cutlery and the dishes provided by request for free. The bathroom is marble tiled, clean. All you need is there. The fan is in one of the drawers below the sink. I must mention, when you take shower the water splashes onto the floor and if you do not put down a towel it all will be wet. Every day from 6 to 7 PM there's a beer and wine happy hour. It's so cool to have a couple of glasses of Sauvignon or Chardonnay with pretzels or a couple of Coronas/Heinekens. The guests are friendly and it's great to chat with them over a drink. In the morning 7-10 there's continental breakfast on the terrace, which is quite scanty for a European citizen. So, we grabbed a toast and a hot drink, maybe an orange or a banana and had our pre-breakfast in our room. After that we would go to the 11th St Diner or any other place for a "2 Sunny Side Up and Home Fries, 4 stripes of Bacon" real breakfast. We never had any meal in the hotel restaurant. It seemed more expensive than anywhere else even with the 20% discount that all residents get. Therefore, I can't say whether the food is good or not. Hopefully, it's up to the mark, just like the hotel itself. There's a valet parking service at the entrance. $30 per day. I was charged $42.7 (saw this when received the card statement report), I think it's the tax or God knows what else. One can also take beach chairs and towels at the front desk. All free of charge. Finally, to sum up everything: the hotel is worth every cent we payed for it, the location is perfect, personnel is attentive and friendly, housekeeping is excellent, rooms are better than many people have at home. The morning we had to fly back home we did not wanna leave this place!!! Thanks to all the people who work in Edgewater South Beach (don't know all of them by name, except Andre and pretty sure Carlos Lopez)! You made our vacation!!! We recommend!
