When the bill came it was for $93.00 for a veggie wrap a Cuban sandwich and two mojitos. After complaining the bill came down to $70 and after more complaints finally to $45... by the... More

The staff was amazing! We absolutely loved the professionalism from the employees at the front desk, valet and manager. The breakfast was delicious especially the coffee. We road bikes everyday and even got a flat tire. They took care of us. Thank you for everything!

The room 404 was very large and spacious, the music from the rooftop bar next door finishes at 4-5am so do not expect any sleep before that time! It is in the disco party area so to be expected. The food is expensive as due to location , we ate once in the restaurant fish & chip , 1 burger... More

We stayed for 5 nights, you are right in the centre of everything and across the road from the beach that was great. the rooms were clean and they were cleaned everyday ( well bed made and bin emptied).

The hotel is in the middle of all the big Ocean restaurants. It's a loud location, but lots of fun. Our room had double windows that blocked out the music that goes on all night. Our room was right under the hotel sign and part ocean view. The staff was friendly and attentive enough. Complimentary breakfast was the same everyday.... More

You will be near to the beach, Collins, restaurants, shops, etc. Our stay was great, we enjoy all of it, only with de exception that at night it was a Little bit noisy, cause of the bar in the first floor.

The room was spacious and comfortable. Also clean and you heard some of the outside noice but there was surely something to diminish it. The breakfast area was fun and very good and the front desk people very nice. We will surely return if we go back

Perfect position, nice room, great staff and good food! The compulsory "service charge" for towels and wifi apparently is very annoying as you cannot opt out if you do not wish to use them. It felt to me more like a charge to allow them to publicise a lesser rate on the internet without loosing revenue.

Extremely disappointed with the standard of the rooms in dire need of a refurbishment. Noise levels unacceptable from nearby bars and nightclubs. Not a cheap stay would not recommend this hotel to anyone.

“We chose a beach view. We wish the pool/bar music was played a little lower but it's MIAMI so we understood.”

“Ask for a room up high and in the back if you don't like to listen to music until late - but the music was great!”
