Shuttle service was awful!!! Late airport pickup; he actually rode past us so we had to wait an additional 1/2 hr. Our plane landed at 5 and we didn't get to the hotel until 8. To top it off we did not get door to door service, we had to walk with all our bags from the Chesterfield to the...

This is a nice hotel but the walls are thin. The staff was amazing especially Roberto and the bard tender Jenny. Those two made our stay special from amazing drinks(Jenny) to great tips on where to go and how to park when away from the hotel (Roberto) Roberto was also full of great ideas and ways to enjoy South Beach....

I was traveling with my childen (16 & 8) and needed a place to stay before our drive back to Naples. We had spent the day at Pennekamp State Park and wanted to spend the next day on South Beach in Miami. We were welcomed by a very helpful front desk person. There is a loading spot in front of...

I didn't have the best experience with this particular hotel mainly due to the constant noise at all hours of the night. Staff was friendly, however, you could always hear them outside in the hallway..either vacuuming, emptying trash bags, doors slamming etc. Also, it sounded as though someone was moving furniture in the room above me ALL DAY and NIGHT....

Room looks as good as the pictures do! Very nice and clean. Bed was super comfortable. Check in/check out process was quick. Friendly staff. Free drinks from 7-8 at the hotel's bar. Awesome location, one block from Ocean Drive and the beach! The only con - parking. Parking is $40 at the hotel but if you walk 2 blocks to...

This hotel is fine. If you're sensitive to noise, bring earplugs because it is an old building and it's on a noisy street. The complimentary happy hour more than makes up for it. Jenny is one of the sweetest, most attentive bartenders we met during our entire trip to Miami. 10000% worth it. She made the trip!!!!

Terrible service. Beware of deposit. Small room. Needs cleaning and updating. Thin walls, could hear every word from next room. Manager not available. Disaster. No parking. $40 to park. They accepted payment on card but did not want to use same card for deposit, and then refused to refund! I stayed simply because they refused to refund.

“I had a nice corner room on the 3rd floor overlooking buildings across Washington. There may have been a little more noise, as it was near the elevator, but not much at all. Bring your cd's if you still have them--the room had a nice stereo. I listened to the radio (NPR) instead.”
