“Alex makes the HGVC South Beach the Best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

Great boutique hotel across from the beach in quiet section of Ocean Drive. Restaurants, Lincoln Road are all in easy walking distance. Starbucks across the street. Rooms come with full kitchen and hotel has laundry facilities. Expect to be greeted by Alex who take pleasure in making your entire stay enjoyable. Will come back every year.

This is not your typical HGVC. There is no pool, this is not a resort, there is no conciege to plan your trips. This is a quiet property at the north end of Ocean Dr. The things it offers is a nice room to relax in, a hot top on the roof, a small exercise room and a front porch to sit and watch the people go by. It is directly access from the park and the beach.

The fact that there is little at the club is a good thing, it gets you out and exploring all there is to see and do in South Beach (SoBe). The building is older and it shows in places, so don't expect the spit-and-polish you may get at some to the larger properties. I would come here again to explore the area.

Room Tip: We did not try the room service as there are so many places to go to for great dining experiences.

Great location for South Beach. Stayed in a single bedroom, small but well appointed and updated. Bathroom tub appeared to be the only non-updated feature and furniture/lighting was too big for the room which made it feel smaller. Stayed only 3 days and did not get any maid or towel service. Do not use the valet parking, very expensive at $35 per night. Parking garage around corner. Hotel serve rep told us you could not park overnight in garage which was not true as they offered 24 hour rates. Felt they lied to get us to use the valet service.

Charming place, with not too many other people. Nice clean, decorated rooms with everything you need to feel right at home. The place are 1 min. walk from the beach.

Staff was friendly helpfull, and discret (locked myself out of my room halfnaked.)

All in all, a nice place to stay and enjoy South Beach in Miami. Close to everything.

I spent 4 nights just a few blocks away from the Heart of Southbeach at Ocean Dr. Excellent Place, quiet, very near of many reataurants and cafes, a few steps from the beach where you can have fun, jog, rent a bike etc

We went to South Beach for a weeks vacation for our anniversary. The restaurants were amazing, some more than others but overall great. Expensive. We purchased beach chairs at CVS to save the $50.00 a day charge for 2 chairs and umbrella. At the end of our stay we passed them on to another guest. We got all around by using the bus for 25 cents and cabs. Art Deco district tour is worth going on. Very nice.

Excellent location across the street from the Atlantic Ocean and right on the middle of all the action of South Beach. Great facility with tremendous staff. Rooms are extemely comfortable and include small kitchen facility. Hot tub on roof was very nice as well.
