We have stayed two times at The Hotel and both times have been grand! John, the concierge was friendly , helpful, and his recommendations were spot on! Daniel, the bellman was friendly and very concerned that we had everything we needed. I wish I could remember everyone's name but just so you know, everyone was friendly and genuinely glad we were there !
While on the small side (the Hotel is an historic lodging and indicative of the time period it was built), it is very classy and elegant without being gaudy. The design theme is carried throughout the building. There is even a kuerig coffee maker in the room along with a well stocked mini frig. Keep in mind, you will be paying south beach prices!
One block away from the beach, your room comes with complimentary towels and chairs at the beach . No having to lug them there!
On the day of our checkout, our bellman invited us to stay as long as we wanted. He secured our luggage until we were ready to go. We continued to enjoy the beach, then returned to use the pool on the top of the building. When we were ready to leave, we were able to shower off by the pool. The shower was equipped with bath gel, shampoo, conditioner, and a hair dryer!
On this trip, we didn't eat at their restaurant so I can't comment on that. However, there was inside (meaning air cond.) dining as well as outside in a beautiful courtyard.
All the action of ocean drive is one block away and since it sits on the corner of 8th & Collins drive, shopping is just outside the door.
We will return to Miami beach and we will stay at The Hotel again!
