I stayed at the hotel, which was then known as "The Strand Ocean Drive Hotel", for three nights as part of a holiday and wedding in Miami and on the Florida Keys.
The room was huge, in a separate house next to the one with the main reception. Kitchen, bedroom, small balcony (good for a smoke, but with rattling air conditiong units from the next building making it not a nice place to sit), and air conditioning that made the fridge feel warm.
Nice welcome at the reception, we were a bit early due to the flight so had to come back, but then the room was ready on time. On the rooftop of the main building is a small swimming pool with chairs etc., which provide a spectacular view across the beach, Ocean Drive, and the neighboorhood at South Beach.
Due to the nightlife on Ocean Drive it was noisy, busy, packed with people, hard to find parking - but stepping out of the front door you are in the middle of everything: 2 minutes to the beach, 0 minutes to nightlife.
