We had a great stay at this hotel. We read many hotel reviews before choosing this hotel. The valet was efficient and welcoming; be sure to tip them! The check-in process was smooth. Efrain made a fantastic effort in helping us get settled into the right room. We had a nice beachfront room with a king-sized bed with a terrace, which overlooked the pool (which was covered and unavailable due to construction). Since the pool was unavailable, hotel patrons were able to use the pool at a Marriott property a few blocks down at the Eden Roc and because of the construction, patrons were given a free pass to use the beachfront chairs. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable, and the shower had good pressure and hot water at all times. There is a cooling unit, which is like a mini fridge, for drinks. There is a Carrabas in the lobby of the hotel, but there are many culinary delights not too far from the hotel. There is also a Tiki Bar, which is next to the boardwalk and overlooks the beach. That afternoon, there was a free popcorn in the lobby next to the Starbucks stand. We met Ivan, the assistant manager, who was friendly and walked out the front of the lobby to help point us to the direction of Walgreens. Across the street, there is Primo Cafe, which has sandwiches and breakfast offerings. Walgreens is just about 2-3 blocks away from the hotel to get forgotten essentials. You can easily walk, rent a bike (from bike stands), or take a cab to South Beach or to the heart of Miami Beach. Check out the Fountainbleu - a beautiful place with pricey restaurants. It was about a 5-10 minute walk on the boardwalk and we had dinner there, which was good, albeit very modest portions. Our waitress informed us that many of the staff were just hired for the spring break onslaught, so don't expect knowledgeable staff there. South Beach is a quick jog or a 20-30 minute walk in the opposite direction. As you approach South Beach, you'll start to notice hotels playing loud music in their pool areas. But, don't miss South Beach and all the fantastic restaurant offerings. We had brunch at the News Cafe (great prices for S. Beach). We also tried the Miami Culinary Tour, which was also a lot of fun. Visit Espanola Way and walk down Ocean Blvd. Overall, the construction didn't bother us b/c we didn't stay in the hotel during the day. There is a bit of dust on the terrace of our room, but that didn't bother us either. Try to reserve a room as high as you can. We were on the 6th level and we could still hear the din of either the ac/restaurant/hotel exhaust fans below when on the terrace.
