This hotel was fantastic! Right on Beach Blvd, but down at the end where it wasn’t quite so crowded all of the time. Everyone who works there is super friendly and helpful. The breakfast was delicious.

Best hotel overall in South Beach!! I travel globally a lot and stay at high-end hotels and this is a great hotel. Beautiful place to stay. Excellent staff that pays attention to guests at all times. Excellent management. My expectations were surpassed as an Expedia Gold member and received a bottle of wine and bottle of champagne with treats on arrival. Everyone is polite and educated. All my demands were met and fulfilled timely. Beachfront hotel and just 2 minutes walk to the ocean. Each reservation gets a beach umbrella and two chairs with towels daily. Very respectful class of guests, and good for all types of travel from business, romance, singles or family. Extremely clean rooms, and excellent room service. The hotel itself is worth visiting with all its history, art, books and photos and could easily double as a gallery or museum making it worthwhile to stay here. Walking distance to everything you need. Excellent valet service with car delivery under 10 minutes. You are constantly given free bottled water all day and guests are welcome with champagne while checking in. There is a rooftop bar and pool. There is live piano music each day at 6pm and also at 11am during the weekend. The food is excellent and breakfast is delicious. Excellent wi-fi internet speed with easy connection. Easy checking in or out. Also has spa services. Would only stay here on future trips to Miami Beach. Highly recommended
