After doing some online research and finding a great review from Architectural Digest online, I booked my room at The Gale. I had an extra night after a week at Art Basel and all the art fairs, parties, etc. and it was my solo day/night not to look at art but just have fun. I spent quiet time at the gorgeous rooftop pool with all day sun and great views in every direction of Miami. While the rooms are small, they are sleek and chic. My corner room had huge corner windows overlooking all of the action on Collins and 17th, which made the room feel larger…I even had a small ocean view. The bed was very very comfortable. Every person I met on staff were all very friendly and accommodating, exceptionally service-oriented. Very clean room and gorgeous bathroom. If you need a lot of space or plan to spend all of your time in your room, well, you may want to look elsewhere (don't forget you are in South Beach, why would you spend all of your time in your room when there is so much fun to be had??) Signature room is good for 1 or 2 people max. Small closet and no dresser or chairs but again, great bathroom and a great bed, that's all I need. Huge TV that I never used because I was out and about having fun. Loved the bluetooth alarm clock to play my music from my phone. Big thanks to Simone for saving my cab to MIA when I was running late at 6 AM when I couldn't get out of that comfy bed! Morris was cool, as well as Ruben and all of the other daytime bellmen who were really outgoing and helpful, they even brought drinks and a pizza up to the pool. Would stay there again in a heartbeat. Great service, great location and well designed boutique hotel. Next time I will try the restaurant and use their beach club!
