Our first trip to Miami included a 5 night stay at this hotel. The word "spa" gives the impression of more luxury than this property affords. It was clean. We did have a nice view of both the bay, and a small view of the ocean and that was great. On the lacking end- they short sheet the beds so that they don't use fitted sheets and therefore the bottom sheet doesn't go to the end of the mattress. If you are tall, as we are, your feet end up on a bare mattress. The pool (compared to neighboring hotels) is very minamalist; a few pieces of the gym equipment weren't working and the restaurant in the hotel is not worth trying. In the bar however, you can have the best mojito ever, but be prepared to wait awhile for it. It's worth waiting for. The only place you can walk to for restaurants are other hotels. It is far away from any place that you can explore on foot. However, if you take a small walk on the beach you can pick up a great boardwalk where you can walk behind many of the hotels you wish you had stayed at! Rates very reasonable. Just have a car or be prepared to take a cab to explore! Oh and do your homework on what to visit. The concierge was absolutely useless! We went to him 5-6 times and he didn't have info, or offer to get info for us. We were there for the South Beach Art Deco Festival. There were signs all over town. It's a huge tourist attraction and he couldn't tell us anything about it-like whether or not there were outdoor booths selling food and goods, etc. we went, and that's exactly what it is. How could he not know that, or offer to find out?
