We came there with a four days reservation made blind with hotels.com. Unfortunately we got a room with a view to the wall of just another hotel, no sky, no city, no trees, no park, no pool: just a wall in a distance about five feet. Ouch!
This was really deceiving, being in Miami Beach and just looking into a wall.
There was no other room to get and we asked for to checkout after one nite. One lady at at front desk was very unfriendly and answered harsh, that even after move out we have to pay for four nites. But glad that there was a collegue of her, who managed that we could check out nexst day and just been charged for one day. Thanks to that lady (March 22nd).
The rest of the hotel, beside our room is ok: the pool is great in a grown tropical garden.
Restauration of the hotel is in an urgent need, but hopefully the nice tropical garden would be untouched.
So maybe if you get a better room with a view to somewhere its quite ok, directly at the beach, close to espaniola way.
