"Not what was advertised!"
They said "includes breakfast", but it didn't. Only because we complained, did we get a refund of the "resort fee". Also, when we tried to check in at 5 PM, no one was at the desk, and we had to go beg for someone to help us. We were made to feel like we were inconveniencing them. Not enough towels in the bathroom, the TV was fuzzy and we had no one to complain to because we were told that they were "short-staffed". The hotel is under renovation, and they used that excuse at every turn. Not worth the cost.
Hotel is under a much needed refurbishment. Information on this was not provided on booking. We were given a newly refurbished room, nice and modern, but not quite finished, lacking several key items which were provided when asked for. No view from room, although promised, facing back alley. Breakfast available at restaurant on premises. Loud music from restaurant day and night and from other establishments in area.
"Nice location, under construction, very loud"
We stayed 2 nights. The hotel is awesome located close to the beach. Very friendly staff. 2 big disadvantages: first it is adjacent to a restaurant with very loud music until 4am. If you want to sleep before take care having ear buds with you. Second they are not done with construction. The rooms in general are nice. If you look at the details a lot of not working stuff, rusty screws, dirty windows, etc. In total for 2 days ok. If you stay out for party till dawn: perfect. Otherwise I would recommend to pick a different hotel.
So happy I booked this hotel. The gentleman at the front desk for very nice and helpful. I stayed at one of the rooms that was just remodel and it's completely gorgeous. Great space for two and the design was very elegant. Bathroom is huge and with a lot of light coming in from the outside. None of the rooms have a balcony at the front showing you the ocean. You get a window with a view and it's a nice view. You get a balcony with the view of the back of the hotel. No breakfast. You pay a resort fee which includes towels and chairs for the beach. This hotel is not for a family stay, because there is loud music all night and threw the day. Great spot around everything you could want in south beach. Great price especially with how expensive south beach is. Cleaning staff is very nice as well.
"It's all about the location"
Currently a little run down with a moldy bathroom shower, slanted floors, sliding door to the bathroom that wouldn't close, and a stained holey leather couch. However, room was kept clean by staff (thank you), fresh towels, comfortable clean king bed, mini fridge, and TV. Biggest bonus.... steps away from the beach! Also in the heart of the Art Deco District. Provided what we needed for our two day Miami getaway (only in the room to shower and sleep, the action is outside). Once renovations are complete we will definitely return.
