The location is great - very close to Ocean Drive and the hotel offers rides to different parts of Collins Ave, so that's nice. However, the hotel itself was not nice at all. There's an odor to the place -- on the way to the rooms (through the Japanese restaurant). Then when you get off the elevator, there's also a smell to the halls - like old, funky smell, as though the carpets have been there for 50 years and have gone through spillage of different types. It's just gross. Then our room is decent, but the bathrooms were nasty - not the kind of place you'd go barefoot. The music from the rooftop was insanely loud. Walls are super thin - as in you can hear other people from other rooms. I suppose if you're there to party, then you wouldn't mind the noise, but we needed some quiet to rest and didn't like the thin walls. One of the days we were there our room was not cleaned at all. Just not a pleasant place to be.
