Small boutique hotel in comparison to most in South Beach, very nicely done in Art Deco style. We were upgraded to a lovely room when we arrived (room 418) but we got a surprise at night when the pumps for the pool came on- we heard it very clearly in the room. After complaining for 3 days and being given ear plugs we were told they could not be turned off and got a room change to the third floor. This room was smaller but we preferred it, we could sleep! If you're a 'light sleeper' like we were told by Reception then don't get room 418, otherwise its a nice hotel. The Manager was very accommodating and helpful when we brought this to her attention. They have a concierge service who gave great recommendations on what to see (wynwood is a nice local area not to be missed and the Wynwood Kitchen & Bar is delicious). The pool was lovely and relaxing, we went in low season so not that many people, the rooftop pool is pretty small so can imagine it will get quite full over the winter months. Fairly close to the beach but on a quieter road so get the best of both worlds. Breakfast was tasty but a bit pricey, you can use some of the credit back to contribute towards half a two person meal (hotel tax is $25 per day where you get $15 credit to use per day, no rollovers)
