I found a deal through Jetsetter, the location is the best, it's right on south beach but on the quiet nice part, so at night you don't get all the screaming of the people partying. The hotel staff is super friendly, we got there at 10am, our check in was at 3pm, but we got a room right away, no waiting, also they offer us free breakfast, the lobby is very chick, and the rooms are beautiful, very clean and modern, they have safe, iron, iron board, beach towels, slippers, hairdryier, alarm clock with ipod dock, the furniture is just beautiful, l highly recommend this hotel, is located steps to the beach, the breakfast is just continental, juices, tea, coffee, pastries, toast...
The bad thing is that the room has hardwood floors which are quite loud when people walk on the room upstairs :S

My wife and I just spent the weekend at Lord Balfour. Really cool lay out, great staff, and really comfy beds. As other posters say, the location is nice and quite, but very close to all the action of South Beach. The beach itself is literally a 3 minute walk away, and they provide beach towels. The one tough part about LB was the early check out time. 11:00 am. They will charge you an additional 100 bucks for a late check out of 2 pm. That being said, they can keep your luggage for you and still give you beach towels to spend time on the beach while waiting for your flight. They even have sizable bathrooms in the lobby for you to change in. Overall a great spot, and a shout out to Richard for all his help.

We came into Miami a day early before our cruise. We knew we would be arriving around 9:45 am. We were planning on just dropping our bags off and heading out on the town to see the sights. We went to check in, and they told us that we could check in, but they were all booked for the rooms that we had reserved, so... they upgraded us. These people were so nice, and went out of their way to help us out. From the ladies at the desk, to the concierge. They were friendly and always had a smile on their faces. The room was very clean and spacious. This hotel is also within walking distance from the beach, or anything else you maybe looking for. Food, Shopping, People watching... It's just a lovely place to stay. We will definitely stay here again when we come to Miami.

We stayed at this hotel because we had gotten a Groupon for it and I would definitely stay there again (even without a Groupon). The staff was so nice and helpful and the location is really great to walk to many different places. The only thing that I would say is that a larger person may be uncomfortable in the bathroom. I am only 5'2'' & average body type and I thought the reach for the tp was a little awkard. The free continental breakfast in the morning is perfect for grab and go and considering how much eating out is done on vacation I usually don't have much room for breakfast anyway! The rooms are new, clean, comfortable beds and the hotel smells good when you walk through the halls and the lobby.

Room Tip: HIgher rooms bc we were on the first level and didn't leave the shades open bc we right at the...

I went with my husband to South Beach for a weekend trip in November 2013. The hotel is in a great location on Ocean Drive, very close to the beach and touristic areas yet in a slightly more quiet spot than the hustle and bustle of Ocean Drive. it's got a cool interior and the staff is very helpful. Rooms are also nice but on the small side. The main complaint is that the walls are so thin you can literally hear everything in the neighboring rooms, so it takes away some of the privacy. other than that the breakfast is ok, i really like the social breakfast area.
