I had to do a 38 hour trip for business in Miami. Decided to do PriceLine for the 2 nights and landed in the Beachcomber. I was VERY satisfied with the room....EXTREMELY clean. Coffee in lobby....hot and iced...starting at 6am. The night manager called me at 5:45 to alert me the coffee was out. Nice feel to hotel...no thumping music at pool....great pool scene to beach access without being too over the top.
Now about S. Beach.....with NO traffic it is a 23 minute taxi ride to airport. All the beach-front hotels on Collins from The SeaBourne to The Royal Palms look good. I walked into all of them (stayed at Delano on a previous visit.) The most understated with a elegant, cool vibe was The Raliegh...may stay there next time just to check it out.
Main drag off Collins is Lincoln Street...nice for a stroll...cigar bar on left and a PAUL patissere. Lot's of retail on this drag, although none TOP SHELF (Hemes, Tiffany, etc.) but still a nice walk.
Unable to endorse any finer resturants as I did not have time to explore. Southbeach is a people watching place and the folks are toned and beautiful. Ocean Drive is neat but doubt a single woman would feel safe strolling it at night.
Would happily stay at Beachcomber again. Everyone was helpful and I may return just to flirt with the gorgeous female staff. My room had no leaks and I have not yet received any erroneous charges to my credit card.
