Pros: Was close to the beach, suite was large. Landscaping was great.
Cons: Leather on sofa bed was worn. Larger bathroom sink, better quality linen and staff training in customer service.
Location: Close to the beach, Collins Avenue and Lincoln Rd which offered a variety of shops , restaurants and bars.
I stayed at this hotel for one week with my husband and three daughters. Was a basic hotel, expected more since the rating on the site stated it was a 3.5 star hotel. Front desk and housekeeping staff need to be trained in customer service. House keeping staff spoke no English and often forgot to replace adequate towels and toiletries. There was no telephone in the room which was an inconvenience. Also parking was limited.

Nice Hotel but poor facility

Posted Aug 19, 2014
We loved the hotel, the facility was quite old but looked good. It rained within the week and the windows in the living room was bad and water came through and messed up the living room. The internet was a complete mess, so I had to use my mobile hotspot through out my stay including paying for extra data. The TV channels was no much option as they were just a few channels. The employees were generally nice and accommodating but we tried to spend much time outside in order not to get bored with the poor internet. All we did was focused on our vacation and made the best out if it.

Decent stay. Walking distance to the beach.

Posted Aug 18, 2014
Pros: We liked the furniture in the room, the little setup of the interior courts with benches and tables, the pool (even though a bit small), the shuttle t
Cons: - the AC didn't work in the "living room", it just moved air - it was a very strong smell of curry in the room - no ESPN channels on TV
Good hotel at a reasonable price. We didn't get the best room but, overall, it was a good stay. Careful with the parking. I parked for 5 minutes, in what seems the hotel parking lot since it goes around the hotel, to go and buy the parking permit and by the time I came back (no more than 5 min later) I had a parking ticket in my windshield. Try and park in front of the hotel till you get the parking permit.

Hello there and thank you for sharing your feedback with us! We offer unbeatable prices for a great time. Parking is a hassle on South Beach. We advise guests not to bring their cars, also as everything is just blocks from us. We hope to have you stay with us again in the future!

Nice boutique hotel close to beach

Posted Aug 11, 2014
Enjoyed our stay at nice boutique apartment hotel that was close to the beach. The cost was reasonable and accommodations were comensurate. Rooms were very clean and comfortable. Staff was friendly and helpful. With suggestions for shopping tourist attractions and places to eat. Tradewinds is part of a chain of south beach hotels. The chain offers free e car service in the main areas of south beach including transportation to free Happy hour available every night at sister hotel. parking is very difficult to find but was available at the hotel for a cost of 20 per day.

Home Away from Home

Posted Jul 30, 2014
Pros: The staff were friendly and they kept the place clean, which is very important. Also, no parties or going crazy, which I loved.
Cons: The transportation was not very good. The driver didn't even wait for my husband to sit with the baby before driving off.
We had a wonderful time. It was close to the beach. If you need and want to be in the action you can, south beach is not far.

Nice appartment with hotel services near the beach

Posted Jul 29, 2014
Pros: Almost everything
Cons: The AC in the room is noisy and construction was going on in front of the pool, making it unpleasant to stay there for a long time during the day.
Location: Very near Miami beach (5 min walk); close to shops & the art deco district (2 min walk).
Excellent stay (12 days). Safe location, friendly staff, well equipped room

Hello there Pascal, Thank you for sharing your feedback with us, and all of our future guests! We are grateful to know that you stayed with us for a lovely 12 days. The location of our property is prime. We are a bit further away from all the action, yet close enough when you want to be apart of it.

Good amenities for family stay

Posted Jul 13, 2014
The room itself was clean enough although for a hotel that claims to be recently renovated I was expecting better. It was very nice to have a full kitchen - this came in very handy travelling with a toddler. The bath tub made it convenient for bathing my toddler, however the tub was extremely slippery and I had to keep a tight grip on my son at all times while he was taking a bath. I wish I had travelled with a non slip bath mat or a blow up infant tub. I also wish I had brought with me liquid dish washing soap, paper towels, a dish sponge and rubber gloves. I purchased these items from the walgreens which is very close to tradewinds, but extremely expensive. I could have got all the items I needed easily at the dollar store at home. It would have been even better if these items were available at no charge through the hotel. The staff at the hotel were friendly but really need to learn more about the local tourist attractions. I asked for suggestions on what to do one day with my toddler and the associate I was speaking to had to go on the internet to look up ideas. I could have easily done that myself. Oh and I almost forgot... After a long day of travelling to Miami I arrived at Tradewinds and checked in. I was told how to get to my room but I was not offered any assistance. When I got to the building where my room was I was surprised to see I was placed on the second floor. My husband and I had to bring everything including our luggage and stroller up 2 flights of stairs.

Home away from home!

Posted Jun 24, 2014
This was a great hotel! It accommodated my group which was 6 people. There were two beds and a pull out couch. The kitchen and supplies were clean! The pool was a nice size and also very clean. There were also cabanas for when you want to be covered from the sun. Truly a great experience. The one major down side was house keeping did not come until 5 everyday which made it difficult to get ready to head out for the night! One day they were unable to even bring us towels because they had not finished cleaning them. Overall my friends and I really enjoyed our stay, staff was friendly and facility was clean! Great place for big groups for a reasonable price.

Nice hotel. Beautiful place

Posted Jun 21, 2014
I could not expend much time in the facilities. I was out most of the day, but certainly I really appreciate the cleanness and conditions all around. The owners must invest in parking space. It is in my do list in my future visit to Florida to stay in the apartments.
