Jetset_Franklin_860, Front Desk Supervisor at The Franklin Hotel, responded to this review

Dear glq123: In the three years that you have been gone, Jetset Franklin as well as Jetset Group, our parent company, have undergone a tremendous expansion. Our hotel now consists of sixteen units located on the second and third floors of the Franklin building. Our reception desk moved to the first floor, where Replay once used to be, and, as...

Jetset Franklin is one block away from Ocean Drive, not even a minute's walk, so perfect for the beach and exploring South Beach's wonderful Art Deco district. The popular Lincoln Road Mall and Espanola Way are only a 15-minute walk away, so shopping, dining and nightlife are within easy reach. I particularly recommend Yard House on Lenox Ave if you're...

Nice modern studio apartment in central location. This is more of a self catering accommodation with limited hotel services. There is a full kitchen, free wifi, iron, but no safe. Staff was very friendly and helpful.The bathroom however was poorly lit and there was not enough shelf space to put things.

We only stayed one night which was New Years Eve but it was fantastic! Location is excellent one block from Ocean Drive. The room was just perfect. The staff were amazing and really went that extra mile for us. We look forward to staying there next time we travel to South Beach.

The second I met the staff I was all set with staying here, attitude was that of person not interested in the client. The room was overpriced based on comparable rooms. I choose the La Flora hotel which was better situated and staff was excellent.

The appartement is very nice, modernly equipped. It is very clean and the team is very nice and helpful. The location is also very central, but as the iappartment is not very sound proof from street noise, it gives sometimes the impression to sleep in the street.
