First time we've ever been to Miami Beach and found this hotel to have solid reviews and a decent price (for South beach). The location was great - easy to get around walking or with a short cab ride.

The hotel room was very clean but also very small. The location or your room is key, we ended up in the older section which had a view of a parking ramp next door. The biggest down side to the hotel was the noise. We could hear the neighbors very easily and because you are in South Beach, they neighbors come and go all night.

The staff was fantastic! From the desk to the bar, we had fun meeting and getting to know them. I highly recommend having a few drinks at the bar prior to your night out. They had a great happy hour special and the staff helped us pick out restaurants each night.

The pool was closed during our trip which would have been good information to provide when we booked but the beach more than made up for it. The hotel sets up chairs and towels for you. We rented an umbrella and had a great day - lots of fun people watching, etc.

Overall, if I ever went back to Miami Beach I would stay here again. Very close to everything and it was the best pricing I could find for 2 nights that close to the beach.

Room Tip: Ask for a room closer to the beach side of the hotel.

If you are looking to stay near south beach, this is it. Great location, two short blocks from Ocean Drive, and easy walks to restaurants and shopping. The staff was very friendly and the room was nice as well. Comfortable bed and small but nice bathroom. The rooftop pool was fabulous with a great view of the ocean.

The in house restaurant was pricy, but right around the corner was The News Cafe. Open 24/7 with great breakfasts and awesome view. Could sit for hours people and car watching.

If you are looking for some nice restaurants, avoid most of Ocean Drive, the staff hammer you as you walk by to come in. Walk up a few blocks to Espanola Way or Lincoln Drive. Lots of great choices on these blocks.

Loved the room on Ocean Drive - spacious, clean, excellent facilities and worth the extra for the view and being so handy for the News Cafe for great coffee. Best of all though was the staff - so friendly, helpful and full of advice. Even on Christmas Day!

Room Tip: The whole hotel seemed great, but you can't beat being on Ocean Drive

Stayed here for a night on my way through Miami. Fantastic deco hotel with nice touches. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. It's wonderful sitting up by the pull having a great breakfast by the pool. I had room 201 facing 8th Ave. The room was quiet though the bathroom a little cosy.

Several years ago, I traveled to Miami alone on business and decided to stay here and get a little pool time in as well. I loved it! The staff were so welcoming and the rooms were clean cozy and super cute. I ate at the pool and Wish several times and all meals were fabulous! The pool scene was relaxing and trendy - there was a professional photo shoot going on poolside while I was there and it was neat to watch. I thought the location was great. Easy to walk to the top South Beach spots. I would definitely stay here again! It was such a memorable stay and I look forward to another visit sometime soon!

We had our flight cancelled so we had to arrive a day late and when we rang up the hotel to tell them this, they simply siad no problem and didn't charge us for the first night we would miss.

We arrived at close to midnight, no problem. The car was valetted no problem. In fact the phrase "no problem" summed up the whole 5 day stay. Nothing phased the staff, they were all polite, friendly and helpful from the barman to the front desk and the valet guys especially were all great. Really friendly and efficient.

Mornings were superb up on the roof by the pool having coffee served to you and watching the beach action meaning your partner could spend as long as she wnated doing her hair for the day!! It was lovely up there and the pool was clean and inviting for a morning or evening dip.

The shower was lovely, a rain shower which was a novelty for us! Everything was clean, the room was big for South beach with a sofa.

The only negative I can think of was the window looked out to the next building but it was quiet and to be honest you have have top pay for sea views uin a South beach Hotel.

Couldn't be happier with this hotel.

Room Tip: We had Room 309, side facing so no view but no noise too. I think being up higher was good for nois...
