Lord Balfour is a SMALL boutique hotel; which means there are not a lot of rooms, not a ton of employees, and the hotel is stylish, and the rooms are smaller than at the mega hotels. So, to compare it to a resort with full services and a pool is unfair. Okay, now that we have that sorted out....
I loved The Lord Balfour. I was there earlier this week for 2 nights. The staff is very helpful and professional. I believe some employees perform multiple roles, and they all go the extra mile to make sure everyone is happy. The property is very quirky and stylish. I found the place to be upscale, but fun at the same time. The bartender crafts delicious, inventive drinks.
The room was immaculate, quirky, and stylish. I appreciated the SUPER comfy bed, the super shower, and the cold, efficient air conditioning.
The morning continental breakfast was just perfect. The hotel is a (very) short walk to a great beach.
The property is on the more QUIET end of Ocean Drive; far enough away from the madness to allow for an evenings rest....but close enough to get to the fun in a five minute stroll.
When staying there, be sure to stroll down to South Pointe Park---great place to watch a sunset or sunrise. This is the point of Miami where cruiseships make their final "goodbye" to the mainland. Check the cruise departure calendars and wave "bonvoyage".
I will stay here again!
