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.

Short trip
Pros: Our stay in the National Hotel was amazing! Unfortunately we just stayed there for two nights, but we got as a surprise an upgrade for a beautiful suite. Thank you for that, we really appreciated it. The bed is veeery comfortable, so it was difficult to stand up in the morning!:-D The hotel has a long pool and a few meters next to the pool you can reach the beach. I can just recommend the hotel and we'll stay there for sure the next time again.
Cons: The cocktails at the pool bar were not good and too expensive.

Pros: Location is great. There are singing performances every night during our stays.
Cons: Room smells bad. It is pretty wet because of the waterfront location. But the smell could be better. Parking is $40, not sure if it is standard

Pros: Location, location, location! Private beach was good and the staff on the beach was very helpful. Room was kinda small but that is the case for most of the hotels on the south beach. Room was pretty clean though. The bed is comfortable.
Cons: Parking cost 42.5 dollars! Had to call 4 times for a hair dryer.
