Modern style hotel. Clean and comfortable.

This is a nice hotel about 8 miles north of South Beach, just off Collins. It was a devil to find as the sat nav took us to exactly the right place on the correct road, but there's a weird quirk whereby it has to be accessed by a different route. Difficult to describe, but if you're driving north on Collins, don't go over the bridge at the end of Bal Harbour, take the last slip road on your right before the island runs out then turn left under the bridge/flyover and the hotel is in front of you. If you accidentally end up going over the bridge you have to U-turn and try again. The hotel cannot be accessed when travelling south over the bridge.
We ended up in the most enormous echoey suite with a square footage bigger than our entire three floored house! Kitchen, two dining areas and a huge lounge, plus bedroom and teeny bathroom (for the size of the suite). Very smart but there are places where things are overlooked like lamp switches that can't be are reached from the bed; scuff damage to fixtures and furniture; no towel to dry dishes; no USB sockets. Stuff like that.
There's a $15 per night parking fee and a $20 per night resort fee on top of the room charge.
No beach access.

Thanks so much to hear that you love our hotel and write such a detailed comment. We really appreciate your advise and our management team will work on it and make it better when you next time visit. The door behind the hotel garden has the gate directly access to the beach, and during the time we have the beach service with towels, chairs, tables, water and umbrellas.
