We stayed for four nights at this hotel. It is in the area of South Beach known to locals as SoFi (South of Fifth). On Ocean Drive, it was an easy 5 minute walk to the beach and the pavilion for our chairs and umbrella. It is close enough to the hustle and bustle of the touristy South Beach, yet...

We stayed with our kids for 3 nites. Housekeeping was poor, the room was not cleaned well (there was toothpaste around the sink when we came back in the evening). Breakfast is weak also. We ate out at News Cafe (little more but better quality). Parking is very expensive $35! Right at the corner of News Cafe, take a left...

This place is really nice! The scent flowing through the hotel is amazing too. The staff are quite professional and greet you everytime they see you. I must say that they look happy to be there. I love this location because you are on the same street as all of the action and still far enough to get a good...

It has a great location, just far enough from the big tourist strip on Ocean Drive but still accessible to everything (beach, restaurants, shopping) by walking. The hotel is small, but cute. It features contemporary...

As many reviews have mentioned, all the staff make this place incredible. From the front desk, to the bartender, everyone is terrific. The rooms aren't that small unless you have say a family of 5 or so - then you aren't going to fit. Bed was nice and comfy. Air conditioner was quiet. The curtains kept the room dark at...
