Sooo... We decided to have a mini Miami Beach vacation this Thanksgiving with our family. We expected to drive up to the hotel, check in, park, go up to our room, take showers and fall asleep on our king bed in a highly rated hotel room. Fairly normal stuff, right? Here's what happened. The street in front of the hotel has actually been blocked off to car traffic. We had to park a block away to go check in, then we had to park in the garage two blocks the other way and then walk back to the hotel with our baby and all of our stuff. We got our room, which actually had a queen bed, contrary to our reservation. We didn't think much of it at the time because we were really tired. So, we hopped in the shower. Three people at around 8-10 min each. And here our troubles began. It was a curbless shower that was built wrong and sloped towards the room instead of the drain. Also there was not a bathroom exhaust fan anywhere. So, in 28 mins of showering it accumulated an inch of standing water in the entire bathroom and all of the moisture from the shower began spread throughout the room. In 2 minutes there was water dripping down the walls and windows of the bathroom AND our room. The water kept either draining into the room or evaporating on the walls. Needless to say, everything was flooded, soggy and mucky. On day two we had to check out and wait for a new room. Day wasted. On day three we almost got kicked out because of internal reservation problems. Anyway, great vacation.

Great location. Currently remodeling so no bar on site. Also location does not have a pool onsite. Pay attention to the details the photos show a pool it is actually at one of the sister hotels. Never used the on-site breakfast because the restaurant next door was closed due to power outage ? The staff is super friendly and rooms are very clean. Very standard run of the mill property as far as amenities.
