“Funky, affordable and in a great spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013 via mobile

This hotel is really 5 small deco buildings fronting Washington Street. It used to be a Wyndham and is now independent. New owners have done a great job! We stayed in the first building, which has had a sleek South Beach-style makeover. The lobby is a sophisticated green and plum, while our room was two tones of miami aqua. Loved it! Rooms are small, but clean and just fine. Big bed was comfy. The location is in the heart of everything--we walked a few blocks to dinner in wonderful Espanola Way, suggested by front desk. Staff was very courteous and helpful. We booked this room late via a search engine, and thought the $131 price was great for the location. Free wifi, yay. It has a pretty little pool out front that people were enjoying. I had the buffet breakfast in one of the other little buildings of the hotel ($13) and it was yummy, including all u can eat scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, pancakes, chocolate croissants, Starbucks coffee. You could eat inside or out under the trees on Washington, which was a great option. The hotel has a little area on 11th (at Washington) where you can pull up in your car to check in and unload luggage. There's no hotel parking, but there are a couple of nearby options and the desk staff can help you figure out the best one for you. (If your stay is really short, like our less than 24 hour one, the open parking lot with meters might be the best bet.) The only con I can offer is that the elevator was out of order while we were there.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

The hotel is a set of art deco style buildings with outside entries. he rooms are large and reasonably clean but not upscale by any measure. If what you want is a comfortable bed with room to spread out than this hotel may work for you.
The room rates reflect the fact that this is not a four star venue. But if you're on a budget this is a good value.
South Beach gets pretty edgy once you leave Ocean Drive. The hotel is directly across from the Police Station so that helps. I always felt safe but I'm 6'1" and 240 lbs!
Parking is a nightmare - you will need to find a public garage and be prepared to park up to 6 blocks from the hotel!
