Our second visit to this hotel after several years. The property occupies 2 adjacent buildings. Upon arrival we were unpleasantly surprised to see exterior renovations underway (mid-November 2009), but the work appears to be exterior only and we were put in the building without construction work.
Pros: Excellent location on Ocean Drive. Terrific rooms -- suite with 2 plasma tvs, full kitchen (with coffeemaker, microwave, dishwasher), large bathroom, and many nice amenities. Free wireless. Very helpful staff. Each building has rooftop deck with sunning areas, spa. Easy walk to public parking garage (cheaper than hotel valet parking fee).
Cons: Most rooms have no views (but this is typical of South Beach hotels). Walls very thin, or perhaps we just had loud neighbors. Despite free wireless, rooms have no real work area for business-oriented travelers. No IPod dock despite other up to date electronics. Bed seemed smaller than advertised.
