The place to be

Posted 2-May-2016
Great location! Steps away from beach and south beach action. You get a complimentary drink daily at happy hour and free breakfast.

Lovely hotel with super nice staff

Posted 29-Apr-2016
Pros: Beautiful art deco design, comfortable, friendly staff, and close to the heart of South Beach action.
Location: One block from the ocean in the heart of South Beach.
We were upgraded to a king suite at arrival which was just great. Although there is a lot of noise around the hotel, the suite was quiet and very comfortable.

Nice hotel close to everything.

Loved that the hotel was close to Ocean Drive, walking distance to South beach. Also a bonus was the access to the Clevelander.

Celebrated my 22 you daughter Birthday here

Posted 28-Apr-2016
Pros: clean, close to everything... beach steps away... continental breakfast was amazing
Cons: a Microwave and fridge would have been nice.
We had the best time ever. Wet Willies was close by.. Mangos and Fat Tuesdays... Loved to be able to go to the Clevendar.. the music and food was awesome.. and the smell of the hotel was awesome.

Gutes Frühstück, netter Service, Sauberkeit könnte etwas besser sein, nächtlicher Lärm durch den Club und die Straße war leider etwas nervig, aber mit Ohrstöpsel ertragbar. WLAN-Empfang war okay, größere Sachen sollten aber nicht verschickt oder gelanden werden.

Low Quality for Price

Posted 18-Apr-2016
Pros: external art deco architecture, nice welcoming lobby, wonderful front desk staff
Cons: a sample of a long list: valet parking insufficient, lighting, bathroom door didn't shut. LOUD.
Location: south beach scene.
Only stay here if you are desperate to be close to the beach and want to access the bar scene next door. The staff was great at Essex and the old deco architecture was wonderful but everything else was a huge disappointment for the price point. I'd like to see the proprietors pay more attention to the details of the rooms that would more closely tie to the wonderful lobby. The superficiality of their care I suppose is reflective of the flashy yet trashy neighborhood. We checked out after only one night because it was not worth it. I would rather spend more money and stay at a truly upscale property a few blocks up than deal with their crappy room that was LOUD.
