AAA Inspector Notes
Inspector Pick (Social Scene): This 1930's hotel has the allure of a bygone era with a swanky lobby bar and rotating, eclectic artwork that frames a trendy scene.
Just a few steps from the beach and the Lincoln Road Mall, this hotel features stylized decor elements reflecting the era the hotel was built in when it served as an escape haven for celebrities. Opened in 1939, this hotel has remained one of the most frequented lodgings in the area. The expansive lobby features the original terrazzo floors that will take you back to that late 1930s era. The rear of the hotel supplies a striking beauty due in large part to the longest lap pool in South Florida and infinity pools. There also are hammocks and a bar just before you exit the gate to the beach. Choose to stay in the tower or in the cabana wing, which was built in the 1960s. The tower rooms vary in size, with the corner rooms offering the most space, but all are appointed with upscale décor. The cabana rooms are situated along the pool and represent a more spacious comfort with a furnished balcony. The pool and fitness room are open 24 hours a day. A cabaret show is featured nightly in the lobby bar. Smoke free premises. 152 units. 4-11 stories, interior corridors.

If you are coming to...
Pros: The location was very good, next to the beach, very central.
Cons: I have traveled all over the world, and stayed in many hotels. We went to Miami over NEw Years. This was positively one of the worst experiences in a long time. Although we arrived at 4:00 PM the room was not ready. We also had an extra bed for our daughter, which was an inflatable mattress, with a hole in it. It took them three days to replace it. Concierge knew nothing about surrounding area, and always had to look to google. Bar inside the hotel was always unexciting. They closed the pools and beach bar one day for an event, which for people who traveled along way felt like a slap in the face. The food at the pool bar took over an hour to come and was unexciting. The front desk is a shambles, every time we asked for something, we would have to follow up with it three or four times. The beds and pillows were lumpy. People nice, but not effective. We stayed there for New Years as this was one of the only places which had an offer for kids. We had to book via a special site as neither the conceirege nor front desk had tech to take the booking. They changed the price and lowered it two days after we booked, we have still not gotten a refund for the difference (a month later). The whole New Year's experience was a sad effort, and haphazard. We are still very upset at this hotel, and our experience there.
