Bang in the middle of ocean drive, better it doesn't get. Nice spacious room with a good bed. The shower is big, but doesn't have enough pressure to get the sand of your body which is annoying. The breakfast in a youth hostel us better, lousy if included. Just a horrible small buffet. Better of booking just a room and...

We were walking on Ocean Dr. in Miami Beach and my husband and myself decided to stop for a drink. The waitress with the short skirt and fancy smile showed us the menu for drinks (no prices). We chose our drinks. She did not ask if we wanted them small or large. When they arrived we were surprised by the...

We had the most beautiful room, with a large and wonderfully equipped bathroom. The bed was really comfortable and air conditioning very effective. The hotel is noisy because of the adjacent clubs. The reception staff and concierge we most helpful. The restaurant is expensive. There is supposed to be a 20% discount for residents. When I asked to charge the...

The hotel itself is a beautiful historic Art Deco stalwart, smack in the centre of Ocean Drive; the room was large and immaculate, service was nice and helpful. So far, I could recommend this hotel; unfortunately, it's right next door to an extremely noisy joint, with music at full volume (I mean FULL volume) until 1 AM, so we just...

Basis rooms. Just one chair in the room. Coffee machine . Ok bathroom. I would not recommend to live here with children do to the noise. The breakfast was unbelivable simple. You could order a better breakfast, but then you had to pay extra .To small drinks in the bar 45$. You can rent a bike in the Reseption. Valet...

My wife and I love this hotel. We actually stayed in the Edison building 2 times once in June 2016 and again February 2017. It is located in the heart of all the action. We enjoy walking across the street to the beach during day. Mangos night club is just down the street and is a must go if enjoy...

Stayed here for 2 nights over the weekend. Absolutely fantastic location for the bars and restaurants ocean drive has to offer. Straight across from the beach. Lively bar right next door called ocean ten with live bands and singers every night, music does go on until the early hours which can be heard from the room so if you are...

Despite the great photography work, the place looks not as good as its shown in pictures. The rooms on the sister prop are very basic and small compared to the ones on the main building and the access to them is a bit estrange, cos you have to cross one restaurant (and its pool) then move between ice cream shop...
