The location is great - close enough to Ocean drive and the main action in South Beach, but without all the noise and bustle.
The staff are without exception a huge asset to the hotel - from valet parking, to check in, to the bar staff and poolside - all helpful, and personable. When you consider the place has only been open a couple months - this is even more impressive.
The hotel is in the old art deco Traymore building - and its restaurant keeps this name. Some people have commented that the Traymore name on the outside of the building is confusing - and it did baffle our taxi driver - however, the building code people insisted the name stayed as a piece of history - so as long as you know - no problem.
The rooms are really stylish - with marble floors and funky rippled wall coverings. The bed is huge and very comfortable - and our balcony was a real plus.
The bar and restaurant area are packed with original art deco features - and there is a huge collection of period artefacts above the bar.
The pool area is stunning - a huge 25 yard pool with great sun loungers and behind that, in a grove of palms, some vast beds in the sun - not your typical sun bed - but a king size, pillow covered, decadent space to sleep, relax , read, eat , whatever. Someone has even provided lap top / mobile charging pods all around - i said they'd thought of everything!
Across the boardwalk and onto a very quiet part of miami beach - with more comfort and service on the white sand.
We didn't eat at the hotel - as we wanted to explore ocean drive etc - and were only staying 2 nights - however the menu looked enticing, and when we return - we will certainly try it out.
All in all - a great start to our holiday - and I can't wait to go back.
