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.

Room view was best facing...
Pros: Everything. Best place to be the hotel is awesome and breakfast is amazing near to all the places. I will definitely be back again. Free wifi and bicycle too
Cons: I would like to eat at the hotel but 20% tax on total bill for the guest also staying hotel is not nice but I eat only once. Price should be little reduce for the hotel room too.

Great location,service needs a bit...
Pros: Location was great
Cons: Booked a roof top suite and they tried to put us in a one bed room with 2 kids. After showing all the booking paperwork finally got what we paid for only after walking all over the hotel. Finally got settled and room was great with lovely views

Great location, ordinary accommodation
Pros: Strange hotel, we had to walk through the bar and an ice cream shop to get to the lift. Tired needs refurbishing, carpet had that smell of an old building! We also found it odd that I think all of the staffs first language was Spanish, and some didn't speak English much at all.
Cons: On arrival we were charged an extra $50 for our two nights stay to get our (as advertised on Booking.com) FREE wifi, access to the swimming pool, etc. VERY FALSE AND UNACCEPTABLE ADVERTISING! The booking.com website urgently needs fixing to include this hidden cost. The staff indicated all booking.com users get upset when checking in, I wonder why? We were not able to walk away after travelling for about 20 hours. Downstairs disco vibrated throughout our building till around 4 am. Food and drinks expensive!
