Nothing good in walking distance
While this hotel may be a good 'value' for proximity to the beach, there was so much missing. Aside from overpriced restaurants in the adjacent Fountainbleau hotel, there were no good restaurants close. We had rented a car, and the advertised 'self-park' option of $32/day was not available - we were told we had to use the $38/day valet. We ordered room service burgers one night, and were informed our menus were outdated and instead of the $14 burgers, they were now $22 EACH! Our menus also indicated a salad could replace fries as a side ($3), but that was also no longer the case and a salad would need to be purchased separately. A meal for 5, including the service fee, was $126 - absurd. It was clear no one cared to eat on site because the lobby restaurant was empty and the hotel bar was Barron and only open in the evening. So much wasted space! Just outside the front entrance, was the hotel's 4 giant garbage dumpsters. They should put a fence or barrier - smelled terrible. The rooms were surface-clean only. Every corner was ridden with a thick line of dust. The only positive was the hotel pool was warm, which helped because the weather was cool during our stay. I would not recommend this hotel or Miami Beach in general.
