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... More

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...

Initially when we arrived, I thought that we were being punked. The hotel is currently undergoing some renovations. We walked into what should have been the lobby and it was a big construction site. We were quickly diverted to the make shift lobby which looked shabby but none the less, I gave it a chance. The desk agent was very... More

Great service, nice room lacking some details, but for the price and location its great. The bad: if you room is facing the courtyard it will be noisy, if you dont mind that (I didn't ) it's fine. The good: Modern rooms, and great location.

This hotel had a great location. Unfortunately it was under a little renovation so I wasn't too sure what was going on. The entrance was set back from the road, so that was a little confusing as well. The staff were helpful. The room was spacious and I loved the bathroom. Whenever they get the construction sorted out, this will... More

Picked this hotel because of lower price in this area - South Beach. This was our 1st and last trip to Miami if we can help it, but the hotel was certainly nice, considering location (in the middle of all the "action") and the fact that i'ts still being renovated. The room was very clean, had a hugh bathroom with... More

We stepped in the hotel around 3am due to a flight delay. They let us in without any questions which was good. But when we stepped in the room, the floor was full of undissolved soap and was sticky. If we were to put some water on it, it would have formed lather. That's why giving it less rating. Also,... More

Awful awful hotel--DO NOT STAY HERE. I purchased a two night stay through groupon. Although the room itself was nice--clearly recently redone--there we no amenities, the entire reception was under construction and difficult to find, and the staff was beyond rude. In particular, one lady rudely called our room right at 11 to bark at us that check out was... More
