On arrival, check-in was smooth and the staff at the front desk were somewhat friendly. Our room was very nice, that being very clean, comfortable and the decor was fresh. Therefore, I was very happy with our room (double suite). The only problem was the awful smell of sewage that lingered in our corridor (due to a leak on our floor and was only resolved by the next day).
Free Wi-Fi was handy and worked quite fast.
In the evenings, loud music is played outside which can be very loud and can last late into the night. Though this did not bother me, it could be an issue for some guests.
The location of the hotel was brilliant, as it is walking distance to the beach and next to Lincoln Road and Ocean drive (the place to find all the shops, bars and restaurants).
During my stay, I did come to find that not all of the staff were friendly, which is a shame as I would of liked to have given Dorchester Hotel 4/5 rather than the 3 stars.
Overall, I would not be returning? Most likely not, simply because I think ones holiday can be made extra special by outstanding hospitality offered by hotel staff but regrettably that was not the case on this instance.
