This is a charming but pricy Art Deco hotel which should be chosen because of it's perfect location on Ocean Drive. Really nice and helpful staff and the very efficient valet parking was very convenient at this busy location. Our room was clean and quite spacious but nothing special otherwise. Quite small bathroom but with some lovely complimentary toiletries.I would say it's ok for a night or two but if you want something special than I would recommend lovely Cadet Hotel which unfortunately was full during this visit. We had booked a room facing the beach/street but this was a mistake as there were lots of noise until late night from the restaurant below. The breakfast menu offered quite a few choises but the food was tasteless and the coffee was also quite bad. However the complimentary coffee available on the first floor for the early birds was really good so get a few cups of that before the breakfast. The restaurant can not be recommended unless it's for watching people. The food was quite plain and the Happy Hour-concept was quite misleading so we asked about it and then felt quite cheated when the bill came. The female waiter had actually confirmed that the price for 4 drinks was 20 USD but this she completely denied and acted as if we were completely crazy.
