Nice hotel close to the beach
Posted Jan 7, 2017
My experience at Boulan was wonderful. The staff at checkin was extremely friendly and helpful. I was offered a room upgrade which was spacious and also had a private terrace and ocean view. The room itself was also much larger than a lot of boutique hotels I have stayed in in this area, with a dining area, microwave, stove, and private bedroom. A short walk across the street provides access to the beach with two complimentary chairs when providing your room number at the kiosk. Breakfast was also included at the on-site restaurant during my stay. The pool area is a little smaller than I anticipated, but with very nice seating areas (just try to get there early if you plan on lounging there because it can get busy at times). Also for those guests interested staying near ocean drive and 8th street beach, there is a bit of a walk from the hotel location (21st and Collins), however the walk was not an issue for me during my stay. Lincoln road mall is also within walking distance and so are shops on Washington Ave. The only negative for me was that the wifi in my room was a bit spotty. Other than that I would recommend this hotel and look forward to staying there again.
