My wife and i have been wandering through Florida for the first time in our 39 years of marriage. We have not made any prior reservations, relying on finding a nice place when we decide to stop for the night. We arrived in Miami mid afternoon. Had a fun but too quick afternoon walking around the Fairchild gardens before heading for South Beach. Using tripadvisor we found a wonderful italian restaurant, Spiga. 5 stars all the way around. As we were finishing dinner we we began thinking about where we would spend the night. I watched several couples entering and exiting a somewhat hidden entry to the impala. We stopped a couple who walked by our table and asked about the hotel. They loved it. We looked on tripadvisor and found great reviews and found a vacancy.
Wonderful little hotel. Room a bit small but everything else wonderful. Staff friendly, helpful and went out of their way to make our stay great. If you stay here, have dinner at the wonderful restaurant in front Spiga. Home run on both accounts!
