Being a South Florda local, I enjoy checking out new properties. I was excited to stay at The Gale, but had some reservations regarding it's small size. The amentites exceeded all of my expectations. The rooftop pool was swanky and cool, the outdoor bar was modern, open air and spacious. Our room was a king with a terrace. It was simplisitically modern with clean lines. I loved everything about it. The valet too a while for our car to arrive, but once I learned that lesson, just call ahead about 15 minutes before and problem solved. I read some complaints about small room size, but I stayed at the SLS across the street with smaller rooms. Location is perfect for the beach and Lincoln Road shopping and dining. All within walking distance. I agree with some complaints regarding the music in the basement until 4am. This is South Beach, not Palm Beach, so it goes with the territory. Stay elsewhere if you want boring and ordinary. Young, professional upscale crowd, I wouldn't recommend for children (I donlt like them at resorts like this). I am looking forward to another weekend getaway there soon. All of my interaction with the staff from bell person, reception, valet were all superb. OUr bartender below the pool level at the outdoor lounge was perfect and engaging. All courteous, professional and efficient. I would definitely recommend to my couple friends. Everything you would expect a South Beach stay to be.
