I chose this hotel due to its location. This decision was probably the best decision I have ever made. I came here with a friend so it was two of us. The staff here are brilliant!!
Ricardo - Ricardo is one of the guys at the reception. This guy is so helpful beyond words. Being new to miami, he was able to give me directions on all the best places to go anywhere not to go. Always friendly and I believe that being always friendly can be a problem for some people but he made my holiday so much better. Even when there were problems, the level of customer service that he had is something that I have not experienced yet. His customer service skills are on a whole new level. He is a real asset to the hotel.
Omar - Omaris one of the security men during the evening. This guy is so awesome! Speaking to him was like speaking to one of my friends. He was also able to provide me with information on south beach and on miami as a whole. He even went that extra mile to print me off a couple of maps giving me directions to Malls and nice restaurants. If you stay here, have a chat with him. You may need to go to the reception at 4am but believe me, it is totally worth it.
Susan, Paola, John (I believe this is the nglish name) Sally were also all brilliant.
The hotel - The location of he hotel is just perfect. Literally around the corner, there is a 24 hour Wal Greens where you can practically get anything. Also, TreeHouse is just around the corner. Susprisingly, there isn't any noise in the evenings due to people coming from nights out. There are other hotels in south beach that are right next to clubs and the noise they get is bad. In the early hours of the morning there is total silence if you like that kinda thing. Getting around south beach is really easy thanks to Ricardo and Omar. you need to visit these guys. They are proper legends. Local buses, taxi's were the main form of transport. The hotel offers a free e cart service which can take you as far as the Chesterfield Hotel. The beach is also a 4 minute walk away. How do I know? I counted it. Brilliant location!
The room that my friend and I received was the single bedroom. I got the pull out bed and he got the bedroom. Surpringsly, there was so much room!! The rooms were cleaned everyday. There was nothing to complain about. The room had a fridge, freezer, two tv, microwave and oven. Basically there was a full kitchen. It was like being at home. For a hotel to make you feel at home is truly amazing.
As for the future, this hotel is like my second home, Ricardo and Omar are truly amazing. I can't stress that enough. If you stay here, speak to them about what to do in miami.
This is somewhere where I will 100% be coming back to.
