Having read all the other comments on the hotel and was a bit nervous, but all n all had a pleasant stay, and looking to return next year to same hotel.
We arrived early in the morning 0900 and they were only too happy to put our bags in the storeroom until our rooms were ready, which gave us time to explore the area and go for breakfast around the corner in the Cuban Segura diner, which was good value.
Our flights were not until late on the day of departure and we got a room until 6pm at $10 an hour, which for 4 of us as well worth it, and gave us another day in south beach.
The hotel is retro, so don’t expect the Hilton, but we enjoyed the hotel the staff were great, room had plenty of space was clean and the bed was comfortable.
There was some noise from people coming in from nights out but they were reasonably quiet no screaming and shouting like you expect at home from we brits. They came in and went to bed.
The hotel is on ocean drive which is busy and there all trying to sell you food, best to go back a street and walk up there.
The local bus was great 25 cents for as many stops as you like, great way to get about. For the really budget conscious there is now a direct bus from the airport to south beach for £2.35 cents, otherwise $32 in a taxi.
There are ice machines in the corridor for guests to use, which was handy for cooling down a beer before going out. There are supermarkets within 5 mins walk of the hotel that sell wine, beer etc.
When out and about look for deals ie resturaunt next door on left was doing two cocktails for $14 rather than $14 for one in the hotel, owned by the same people I think. Plenty of happy hours about.
The hotel restaurant was excellent but as others have said expensive $48 for a rib eye steak. That said all south beach is expensive for food and drink, so best to shop around and check web sites like 10best, trip advisor, Miami herald.
The roof terrace was a great place to chill out and made a change from the beach.
There is also a small pool if you just want a dip to cool down.
We enjoyed our stay and will be looking to return to same hotel next year around the same time.
