Perfect Location for Enjoying Cultural Amenities
Posted Nov 18, 2016
I chose this hotel for its proximity to the Mahaffey Theater, where I was attending a concert, and because it looked more "interesting" than yet another chain hotel. Although I only spent one night, my experience was quite enjoyable. Check-in was FAST, and I was given a quiet corner room on the 6th floor. There were windows on two sides, which was nice. The aged hardwood flooring was beautiful. The room was very clean, and equipped with basic amenities (TV, coffee maker, fridge, etc.) The decor throughout the hotel is a bit "funky" --- a mix of contemporary meets old Florida hotel charm. The front desk staff suggested street parking for my short stay, and explained what time periods were free. They also offered some restaurant suggestions. The hotel's location is perfect for exploring shops and restaurants along Beach Drive, and both the Mahaffey Theater and Dali Museum are within easy and enjoyable walking distance. After the concert, the hotel's lower level bar, Che, offered late dining and cocktail options in a cool, relaxed setting. Overall, I felt as if I had spent the night in the somewhat quirky guest room at a friend's house. Clean, comfortable, and plenty of character. I would definitely return to this unique hotel.
