AAA Inspector Notes
This restored Art Deco hotel facing the water is in the heart of South Beach. Located in two different buildings, the guest units are spacious and well-equipped. Some of the guest rooms have a sofa. If you enjoy sitting outside then you should request a guest unit on the fourth floor of the south building as they all have a furnished balcony. The bathrooms vary in size but each includes a spacious shower stall with glass door and customized fixtures. Those with a sweet tooth will enjoy the onsite gelato shop. Smoke free premises. 99 units. 4-5 stories, interior corridors.

Pros: The check in agent was wonderful. We arrived a bit early, and the room was not yet ready. She allowed us to change clothes and to store the luggage. She took the cell number and said she would call when the room was ready. We went to lunch, and before we were finished, she called and said the room was ready. Check in and check out were both very expeditious. The room was very nicely done. It was completely updated, spacious, and had a very large bath with dual vanity, and a large walk in shower. We were in the adjacent building, but it was no problem at all. Everything was clean and fresh. The location was excellent, in the heart of South Beach. The included breakfast was good. I would book this hotel again for future trips to the area.
Cons: This was NOT an issue for us, but would be for some people. The hotel is in the heart of South Beach, and South Beach and Ocean Drive are noisy. Having lived in Miami Beach in the past, I was aware of this, expected this, and it caused no problems for us. Even with the double insulated windows, the music from the club next door was audible late into the night. If you are a light sleeper, best take some earplugs. The location is worth the noise!
