I stayed here for the first time last March, and while I gave it a favorable review (with praises for location and service) -- I thought that the rooms were a little dated considering the high price tag. After staying here last Saturday night, I have a completely different opinion! It looks like the rooms have had a major "face lift". We stayed in a partial ocean view room with one king bed. The room was extremely spacious with a beach-y, aqua feel. Once the madness of the South Beach Food and Wine Festival calmed down, it was very quiet (virtually no outside noise). I was a little disappointed with the size of the balcony, given the killer view! It would have been lovely to lay out, especially since the pool can get a bit crowded - but there were only two small chairs. The pool, of course, is beautiful - maybe a little smaller than the pool at the Loews, but nonetheless extremely clean (given the proximity to the beach I was worried it could be sandy, but it was not). Deck chairs can be difficult to come by on a beautiful day so get there early if you would like a spot in the sun! The service is excellent, as at virtually any Ritz property. You cannot beat the location on South Beach, and I appreciated the quietness that is hard to find in SoBe. Overall, I am happy I decided to give it another try after initially being unimpressed about the dated rooms back in March - this time, I felt the higher price was justified! If I can afford it again in the future, I certainly will be back.
