I stayed at this place with my friend. We were a little shocked when we arrived as the place looked kind of run down. We were similarly shocked when we saw our room. Small and a little shabby. However, after a while the quirkiness of the place rubbed off on us.
The biggest shock about this place however was the pool. 5pm on a Sat night, people having sex in the pool. It was out of control and in no way discreet. Furthermore, when we complained to the staff the manager said there was nothing they could do. So we sat in the hot tub, drank and tried not to watch the people having sex. It was kind of disgusting and ruined the trip for me.
I would not stay here again.

- Situated on tiny Belle Isle in Biscayne Bay, The Standard, Miami is an indoor and outdoor hydrotherapy playground that fosters stress-free socializing in a tropical, contemporary setting. With a minimalist design, the holistic hydrotherapy spa hotel provides a stylish yet intimate ambience just blocks from the glitz of South Beach's nightlife and celebrity crowd. Owned by hotelier Andre Balazs, the hotel, winner of Conde Nast Traveler's Readers' Favorite Spa Hotel award, features a one-acre garden with do-it-yourself hydrotherapy-based scrubs, plunges, open-air mud baths, and stunning amenities that include a 103° F Roman Waterfall Hot Tub, a 50° F Arctic Plunge, and a 12-foot Falling Water Column. The 12,500-square-foot spa boasts one of the largest hammams in North America, in addition to an exceptional treatment menu of bodywork, massage, facials, and complementary health alternatives. More than 40 fitness classes are available weekly (including eight types of yoga), and the hotel's restaurants offer healthful Mediterranean coastal cuisine and al fresco dining. The modest guest capacity (a mere 100 rooms) complements the hotel's communal setting. ... more less
