Stayed just one night. We arrived early but they gladly stored our luggage while the rooms were turned over. It is SO worth becoming an InTouch member. When we returned for check-in, we were greeted with sparkling wine and made to feel like VIPs! Not bad for a free sign-up, gotta do it.
The pool area is great. I love that they find a chair for you and set up your towels. The employee at the pool asked if we wanted sun or shade, took old towels off two chairs and set up new ones for us. It's such a simple thing, but it's really a wonderful service. You never know if you can move someone else's towel...if they've been gone for hours or just ran back to their room. The employees at the pool must keep an eye on this so you can find your seat stress free! You can use complimentary sunscreen and they have pool side cocktail service too. The drinks can be pricey, but that's to be expected at all the hotels along this strip. They have a free wine hour, but we did not attend.
The hotel is beach front and has easy access to the beach walk right behind the hotel. We didn't take advantage of the beach area, but it seemed like there were plenty of places to sit and had the same service as the pool area where they get you all set up with a lounge chair.
The location of the hotel is superb. There is a ton of shopping/restaurants on Lincoln, just one block away. Upon check in, Chris at the front desk gave us great pointers since it was our first time in South Beach. He pointed out the sights to see, and what areas to avoid. Super sweet guy. We parked in the garage on 16th street and walked to the hotel which cut the price of parking in half. We used our "raid the bar" coupon toward the mini bar, just had to tell them upon check out where we used it and they credited our account. We had breakfast on their front patio, I think it was part of "The Social Club". Service was really slow and the food was just okay. I would recommend venturing out for breakfast if you have time. We didn't really mind, but I could tell other patrons who were in a hurry were getting annoyed.
All in all a great stay and I will definitely look for another Kimpton hotel wherever our next trip may be!
