We decided to arrive in Miami at one of the bussiest weekends in the year: "Memorial Weekend". When we started looking for hotels, most of them were double the price in the area only for those days. However we found this very well located hotel in Collins Av. Just crossing the street you get to a private beach (either you can pay the fee or just talk to somebody).
Anyways, the bedroom is pretty basic: a bed, a safe box, a very clean and tiny bathroom. I guess for a couple of nights it´s ok as it isn´t a relaxing hotel, it´s just a hotel were you can crush after going to party and then, waking up early in the morning (very noisy guests around the pool at any hour!!!). Don´t expect breakfast because the rate doesn´t include it...you sitll have several places nearby to have a decent meal.
It has a parking lot but it costs around 10 bucks a night.(¿?)
The service is not very polite, but you are in Miami, so you don´t expect to be treated like a king in 2-3 stars hotel.
For my husband and I it was OK. Make sure you make your check out at 11am sharp, otherwise they´ll be knocking on your door, calling you over the phone, or even worst! charging an extra day.
Mostly, it´s expensive for what you pay.
Just take every precaution.
