I stayed here for two nights after a week on business in Toronto. I arrived at about 1am after a delayed flight. Check-in was pretty quick at that time of night! The hotel is well-located, separated from the beach by a pedestrian path. Being on Lincoln Road, it is also close to the shops and restaurants of the pedestrianised section of Lincoln Road.
My room was on the club floor, although I didn't actually have club access with my room rate. The room was an ocean view with a balcony. It had two queen beds in it, which made it rather cramped. Furniture was OK, but the decor is getting a little shabby. I had problems getting power for my phone charger until I worked out that the outlet/socket was hanging out of the wall and I had to push it back in again.
The bathroom was a good size, with a proper sized bath, a separate shower cubicle and a separate cubicle for the toilet.
Bed and pillows were comfortable, although I noticed on the second night that the turndown service had turned down the wrong bed. Had I been doing it, I would probably have turned down both beds.
The biggest problem with the room is the interconnecting door into the next room. On the first morning, I could clearly hear the conversation of the couple next door. On the second morning, I heard rather an entertaining argument. On neither occasion were voices raised, yet I could hear everything very clearly. When I called the front desk, I was told that there were no rooms of this type without interconnecting doors, and anyway they hadn't really had complaints about noise coming through the interconnecting doors before (not generally the type of response that goes down well with me!). I did, however, get some hotel credit in compensation. Fortunately, I wasn't disturbed by any noise at night from next door.
I ordered room service breakfast on both mornings. The in-room dining cart/table thing was rather too large for the room, but the food was otherwise good. I had dinner in the restaurant on one night, by the pool. It wasn't busy, but the service was good, as was the food.
I think I would probably stay here again if I was in Miami Beach, although the interconnecting door issue is rather offputting.
