Just got home from a 3 night stay at Lord Balfour on South Beach and we can't wait to go back. The hotel is clean, modern, and really beautiful and feels inviting from the second you walk in. The room was just perfect, they keep this place spotless. The king size bed, the hot shower, the view of the ocean, (rm. 308 is highly recommended!)and the decor all were more than we could have hoped for when we booked online. The greatest asset to this hotel in our opinion is Richard, from the second we stepped on the property to the minute we left he was someone we looked forward to running into. Too often you can go to nice places and have employees that are just cold because of all of the people they see and meet everyday or just trying to get through until the next paycheck. Richard went way out of his way to be kind, make conversation, help us figure out travel arrangements (literally called everywhere to help us out of a last minute jam), not only suggested places for us to go but printed off directions, and reviews for us. We also loved that the hotel is on Ocean Dr. but not right in the heart of all of the commotion so it was quiet and not surrounded at all times of the day. It is about two blocks down (1 minute walk) and about a 200 yard walk to the beach, at most. This was a really special visit for us and the hotel ended up being one of the many highlights of our trip and we can't thank the hotel and Richard enough for their hospitality. 5/5
