After reading different reviews from different sites, I decided to book here for one night.
Yes I read about how loud it was (they have happy hours here, and will think that if it is busy, they will keep the music till late). I also read about how not friendly was the staff and that you needed to pay for Valet Parking (the hotel site tells you about the parking).
Let me tell you about my experience, i asked for a quiet room (i got it), the front desk guy was always smiling and very helpful.
Parking, yes we figured out that we could have paid less if we parked the car in one of those Public parking garage (do your homework if you have the time, or walk around and search for other alternative), now we know what to do next time with the car, is not the hotel fault, they offer you a service for a price.
the restaurant downstairs (not sure if it is part of the hotel) had a good choice in the menu, the server was friendly.
Remember you are not booking a 5 star hotel, this is a small hotel at a good price, is clean, trendy, in the heart of South Beach.
Just remember not to book with third party
