Found this hotel on Kayak, booked standard room. Tries to be a trendy hotel in South Beach. Smaller than it looked on Web, passed by it first time. Our first room was a little dirty, some things cracked, upgraded to a PH jacuzzi for $150 /night, don't bother- rooftop is basically open to other rooms and hotels, not private, we used it once , a little shabby, and side view of ocean. We had PH3. Also two "coolers" in room, one for mini bar, and one free. These are NOT refrigerators, they are just coolers, you need to put ice in for anything to be cool.Who thought that was a great idea, cheaped out! Coffee maker is one of the most stupid I have ever seen, makes espresso size cups. Location is right on end of Ocean where it meets Collins, great location to just walk down Ocean. Beach is across the street, chairs and unbrellas are provided for $19 "resort fee", another ripoff. Parking is $30/day. Great deli across the street, with little markets, buy juice, great pastrami sandwiches, rivaled Katz's in NY. Breakfast at 11th street diner is a must. about 5 blocks south on Washington. Did not use the postage stamp pool, always full of loud kids and their large parents. Hotel is jammed between two others, it looked spacious in the pictures, and made to look like it is standing alone on the beach, which it is not.
Now we haven't been to South Beach in 8 years, we were in Florida looking at condos in three cities. South Beach has gone back to being a little shabby, more crowded, and with gang elements cruising the strip. I don't mind a party, but I do mind not being shot. Last time in South Beach. I also got to use my Spanish quite a lot. Gone are the great cars cruising, saw one Aston, a lot of Nissans. Everything has its time, and South Beach has had it. I would stay at a different hotel next time, but I doubt there will be a next time.
