We went here for the day after our Disney cruise. We stay in luxury and boutique hotels often, and thought this would be a quaint and historic hotel to visit while in Miami. There is a DISTINCT difference between historic and OLD AND RUN DOWN! We arrived in time for an early lunch, and as soon as we got out of the cab my husband was ready to leave. There were black moldy streaks down the sides of the building and the paint was peeling off. This is an old and dreary hotel and the photos online are very misleading. We went to eat lunch by the "beautiful" pool and were surprised at how dingy everything was when walking through the restaurant. They tried to use a few high end looking pieces here and there to make it look upscale, but in essence it was in dire need of maintenance, paint, and a good cleaning. The doors to the bathrooms are thin pieces of wood like you would find in a trailer park. The service was VERY slow, and there was only one other family there. The white uniforms the sad employees were wearing were dirty and about 2 sizes too small. They didn't seem very concerned with service, despite the AUTOMATIC 18% gratuity that was added to our bill on our already overpriced food. (Chips and salsa was $8.00, and the salsa tasted like ketchup-literally). My husband had a sandwich that had "artificial cheese food" slices on it that made it inedible. Our kids quesadilla was OK, but for $14, it should be. They shared a berry smoothie, and that was $8.00 also, but had hardly any flavor except for being sour and watery. We paid about $65 for a light lunch, which was 1 meal, 2 appetizers, a coke and a smoothie. VERY disappointing. We then decided to check out the beach and walked around the pool area and through a rusty old gate to get to it. You can not see it from the pool at all. It is a more quiet part of the beach, so that was nice. The lobby is full of Fendi furniture, but it is old and filthy with stains. The white sofas had giant brown stains on the cushions and I couldn't wait to get my kids out of there. The bellman, Tony, was a very nice gentleman, and the girls at the front desk seemed sweet, but I wouldn't pay $75 a night to stay in this place, much less $400-$800!! We stayed at a Best Western Bayside before our cruise, and I would far recommend it over this place and it was less than 1/2 the price! I DO NOT recommend....
