Great location, but not enough info given about things to do, like the tourist bus. The hotel was also undergoing a renovation which we were not aware of before booking this hotel and it would have at least prepared us for the strong paint smells as well as the constant competition for room on the elevators. Our TV did not work and they offered to move us, but again a great hotel would have known this beforehand and I think they did based on the fact that this entire floor or that side of the floor was without a TV. The Swimming pool was also not working.

This hotel was in an ideal location - one road back from noisy, frenetic Ocean Drive, so was easy & close to get to but without all the noise. Only problem I would say we encountered & it had been mentioned in other reviews before we booked was their unbending policy of not being able to occupy the room before 4p.m. we had disembarked from a cruise ship EARLY in the morning & had to spend the day wandering Miami without being able to get into our room. However once we got occupancy we were happy

Stayed at this hotel for part of our honeymoon vacation and we were not disappointed. The hotel is extremely well located on Ocean Drive with all amenities within close walking distance.
The hotel itself is an attractive Art Deco style building and the interiors are modern and well appointed. The room was one of my wife's favourites and again, it was well appointed and modern wih a small kitchen (including dishwasher). The bed was very comfortable and clean.
The only gripe we had was the parking situation. Being on Ocean Drive we struggled to find a spot to park, with everything being metered. The meters run from early in the morning to 3am every day, however the hotel offers a valet parking service, approximately $35 a night, which could proved quite costly depending on your stay.
