I stayed at this hotel 3 days after its opening. They have restored 3 or 4 buildings from the 40´s; pure art-deco style. Very nice! All rooms and common areas are decorated with wall photos from the 40´s/50´s.
My room was a standard room (Art Deco King Bed). Good size room and bathroom. Comfortable bed, iPod dock station, etc. Bathroom materials are not first quality, but are ok. Free wifi in all areas worked perfectly.
The street is residential and silent, but could here noise from the hall and lift.
Location is excellent for those who don´t mind missing an ocean view and want to stay away from busy Ocean Drive. Only 2 blocks from the beach and 4 blocks from Lincoln Road. Good restaurants in the neighborhood.
Breaksfast is included and well served. Swimming pool looked good (bigger than most boutique hotels), but didn´t use it.
No parking lot at site. They say there is payed vallet service, but actually you are the vallet, since you need to drive your car 2 blocks away to the garage building.
Pestana is a good Portuguese hotel chain and this is their first hotel in the US. I am sure they will do their best to provide good service. Staff speaks also Portuguese.
Rate was lower than equivalent options in the area.
