We arrived on gay pride parade day which was a bit excessive and this hotel is at ground zero. But the next day the paraders left and we could appreciate the hotel better. It is right on the art deco beachfront strip between 10th and 11th, has a rather underwhelming lobby at the back (original lobby converted into a restaurant), the rooms are a decent size but not spectacular (we had 2 adults and 4 kids in one room, so they are big enough! and the hotel was good enough to let us do this) but wow, the rooftop pool and bar is a revelation. The view is amazing, but the best thing is that hotel guests have free flow drinks every night 5-6pm and everyone gets happy! The bar tender is a really friendly young guy, easy to get talking, and you can enjoy the view of the street, the beach, and the cruise liners heading out. I saw some complaints about the parking but get real, this is like being in New York or London so of course you are going to pay US$30 a day. You can just step outside and you are amongst the beautiful deco buildings, right behind hotel is a great Cuban cafe called Davids that has a window selling cuban coffee, perfect start to day. More a party goers place but our family enjoyed it too.
