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.

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.

Pros: Location
Cons: Rooms need updated. Beds need updated
Beds were very uncomfortable. The price for parking was extremely expensive.... $40/day or $80/day if you have a 4 door pick up, like I did. Hotel is in desparate need of an update. The staff was very nice though.

Nice hotel on the beach

Posted Jun 16, 2014
PROBABLY THE NICEST STAFF WE HAVE EVER ENCOUNTERED ANYWHERE--PERSONABLE, KNOWLEDGEABLE AND EFFICIENT. I GUESS WE HAD EXPECTED A SLIGHTLY MORE SPIFFY, MODERN ROOM BUT THE VIEW WAS GREAT AND FRIENDLINESS OF STAFF MADE UP FOR IT.

Near the beach and good hotels

The hotel was great. Staff was friendly and helpful. Location was great. Slightly overpriced...but I guess that is more a function of South Beach
