5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

Excellent place to stay! Within walking distance to the beach,bars,food,and night life! We were so happy with the service and the rooms ! We love the tattooed girl on the walls of each room. The staff was very accommodating,polite and very quick.The shower was very nice! The hotel was very clean and smelled great when u walked in. We can't wait to come back ASAP !

I was going to a concert in Miami and stayed the weekend at this new hotel. The decor and art work in rooms are very trendy and the beds are big and comfy. The staff went above and beyond to assist my friends and I to have a great trip and even extended our stay with no issues for a second night. All needs were met in a quick fashion and they even let us borrow pool towels to use to lay on the beach which was great since the beach is right across the street. Local bars and restaurants are within walking distance or quick taxi trip down the road. This is a new and up and coming spot to check out if you plan to stay in Miami beach. It is a smaller hotel, so easier to get more attentive services. I would recommend this hotel to visitors and locals in South Florida.

Room Tip: All rooms have similar style and noise level from outside is low.

I stayed two nights here and I can say the customer service was excellent. Everything is new so it was really clean. The minibar was not stocked due to the hotel one being open for one day. It's about 4 block down from the main action on Ocean drive but it was about a 3 min walk to the beach. The only bad thing I could say was that our cable went out the last night we were there but we were offered another room once we talk to the staff. The double bed rooms and bathrooms were small but its a south beach hotel. I would stay here again when I go back to South Beach.

I just got back from a quick trip from Miami Beach and had a great stay at this new hotel. The service was great, very friendly and the drinks at the bar are creative and fantastic. It just opened, yet these people were all on their game. South of 5th, so a quieter, only a couple blocks from the action. Will definitely be back.
