3 Star Hotel. Definitely not a 4 Star.

Posted Sep 15, 2014
As a 3 star hotel, the property isn't bad, but I am annoyed with Expedia for advertising this as a 4 star hotel, when it most certainly is not. The property needs updating and the hallways and elevators have seen better days. At over $250 a night, you are paying a lot for a 3 star hotel experience. The food at the hotel is also extremely expensive. There was one nice girl at the front desk, but overall, the attendants were rude and unhelpful. The hotel is close to the beach, but contrary to what was posted on Expedia, it DOES NOT have direct access. You have to walk to the very back of the property, exit the hotel, and then cross the street.

Pros: Private. Not loud. Nice upscale crowd.
Cons: Food.
Location: Walking distance to all.
Great hotel for getting away. The pool is majestic. It quiet and not a party hotel. Is more for adults and people that want to spend a nice time in a great hotel with a great sense of ambiance .

Miami in August

Posted Aug 27, 2014
Location: It was the perfect locale for me, everything you want is a short walk away, and plan on walking a LOT if you visit South Beach.
This hotel was excellent, everything was exactly what I expected it to be. The front desk staff were great, especially Elkin from Columbia, he took care of every thing I needed and gave me some great suggestions on where to eat, like Smith & Wollensky and Baires. It was really hot (humidex 110 ) so they were even passing out water bottles from the SLS. The pool was lovely, and the little coffee café at the front was lovely.

A new favorite place to stay

I could live here. The decor is an example of classic, style and elegance that so many hotels now lack.

Good Hotel, too Expensive, Strangely Noisy rooms

Posted Aug 19, 2014
Location: Location is Superb, on the top of the pros of this hotel
Nice, clean, Some what comfortable. Offers good direct exit to the beach, but you still have to pay for the umbrella and any additional seat ( you get only 2 with towels). You have to be cautious with their prices or you will find your self paying for almost every thing ... This is a resort hotel, mainly for Couple, as almost every thing else in Miami, NOT FOR FAMILIEs ROOMS ARE NOISY .. this was disastrous !!

No luxury for price.

Posted Aug 14, 2014
I booked this hotel because it was featured on Anthony Bourdain's T.V. show. Very disappointed. The room was bland. Beige walls, beige furniture, no art work at all. Small T.V. Furniture looked like it came from a flea market. The bedding was nice. The bathroom was very small and had no counter. No place to put toiletries. The valet took 45 minutes to bring my car. The pool was nice and the location was pretty good. A 2-3 block walk to Lincoln Rd. Too pricey. Also $39.00 per day to park my car! With all the add-on's it was $300 per day.

Nice hotel...rooms need an update.

The hotel is very nice,lobby is great, restaurant was good and the pool is amazing. The rooms need an update..I realize that's the look they are going for but it still looks very very dated.
