Hidden Gem

Posted 12-Jul-2014
Pros: Feel of being private. comfortable bed
Location: great location. beach very close and plenty of places to get a drink and eat. walgreens around the corner
Great location just one block south of the strip and one block from the glorious beach. Close enough to all the action and far enough from the noise. Smallest hotel I've ever stay in and I enjoyed it a lot. During my 5 day stay here say two other people in the hotel. Restaurant was always busy but unfortunately didn't get around to trying it out. Pool on roof top was all ours every time we went. My first one without children in it. Feels very private. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Hotel supplies beach gear which is very helpful and included in resort fee. Room is very comfortable and clean. Just wish I had a balcony. None were available when I stayed but would've paid the difference. Will definitely stay here again when in Miami.

Wonderful hotel

Posted 19-Jun-2014
Very close to beach, laid-back, relaxing, stylish. The most comfortable beds ever! The only thing missing is a coffee make in the room. Otherwise perfect!

Real Great Place On Ocean Drive.

Loved the hotel. Just wish it was better light in the room and a microwave. Everything else was great from the shower to the bed.

Nice hotel in convenient location on South Beach.

A very nice hotel. My only criticisms are that there were no facilities to boil water and wi-fi was down all day on my last day.

Cool hotel great location

Posted 10-Jun-2014
Pros: Everything a small hotel should be.
Cons: Nothing.
Location: Beach access directly across the road. Bars and restaurants up Ocean Drive but nicer places to eat about 1 mile away around Lincoln Road.
Lovely little place in a fab location on Ocean Drive - so close to the beach but just enough distance from the bars and restaurants 100m up to not be disturbed by noise at night. Loved the decor of the hotel and the staff were brilliant. Beds were really comfy, nice bathroom/shower. Peaceful little pool on the top - great place for sunbathing. Used the hotels beach towels and umbrellas - allowed us to even after we had checked out, a good bonus. Would highly recommend this hotel.

Better than the pictures!

Posted 27-May-2014
Pros: Everything!
You know how the pictures of hotels on the internet look awesome, but when you arrive it's just not quite as good? Not So at Sense! The room and hotel are every bit as stunning as the pictures! We were passing through Miami on the way to Key West and wanted to check out the SoBe scene... We were looking for a hotel close to the touristy part of Ocean Drive, but maybe a block or two away to save some money. Initially we were looking at the typical restored art deco hotels that South Beach is famous for, but a lot of the online reviews had the usual caveats about older hotels, musty, not the greatest fixtures, that kind of thing, so when we found a nearly new hotel right in our target zone we were interested. The pictures showed chic, modern rooms and thats what was delivered. This hotel is really nicely located right at the south end of the action so you can easily walk a block or so to the first of the string of restaurants, clubs and classic hotels along the oceanside park, without having the party carrying on in front of your room when you're ready to turn in for the night. Sense is about a 1 minute walk from a beach access that has a handy public foot rinsing station to get the sand off after your beach visit. Sense offers beach chairs and umbrellas to take with you so you don't need to pay the outrageous fees to rent chairs from the beach businesses. Sense also has stand up paddle boards and surf boards for guests! Restaurant was good too! Highly recommended!

The nice thing about is the location just across the street from the beautiful beach. I do go down a few times a year to get away from the grid of work and the cold of Chicago. I enjoy the pace of South Beach and all that there is to do there. This hotel was my first try and I enjoy the relaxed vibe. compared to the bigger hotels I always stay.

A gem in paradise

Posted 15-May-2014
Right near all the action, but not too close. The staff went over the top to make my short stay both pleasant and relaxing. Great spot for those on a budget.
