Location of hotel perfect was perfect for us. We were on Ocean Drive but did not have to worry about all the noise & crowds when we wanted to go back to our hotel at the end of the evening for a good night's sleep. Just across the street from the beach & hotel offered free beach chairs & towels... More

Room was nice. It was very clean. Location is good, close to everything but still quite. Staff was friendly. My only problem was a water pipe that was rattling in the wall of our room. Every once in a while it would rattle pretty loudly. The one evening I went down to the front desk to ask about the noise.... More

I loved staying here and would stay again without hesitation. The beds were comfortable (Tempur-Pedic), bathroom clean, and location terrific. It was awesome to be close to the beach and far from the noise of Ocean Drive north of Fifth Street. The hotel had lightweight beach chairs, umbrellas, and extra towels available and was located close to a Walgreens for... More

The room - gorgeous! Service - exceptional! Location - if using public transport from miami int.airport, will take a little while to walk from where dropped off but otherwise - close to the beach (perfect for early morning sunrise), close to all bars/restaurants etc, walking distance to shopping.
