The Setai is an excellent hotel and probably the best in South Beach but was just shy of excellent for a couple of reasons.
Firstly the service was excellent throughout except for a lamentable lapse with valet parking. For $42 a night I really expect them to be able to return the car within 15 minutes but they failed on a number of occasions.
Secondly, the room, in the low rise part of the hotel is well appointed and very comfortable but curiously things did not work: the bath plug failed to stop water draining away, the coffee maker never worked and the socket in the bathroom for the hairdryer did not work.
Minor quibbles I know but they just show a hotel that needs to improve a little.
On the plus side, the pool area is excellent and no where near as noisy as the W, the breakfast was fantastic. The position is good but just away from Ocean Drive and probably the better for that.
I would definitely stay here again.
