We only stayed here for a one night layover but we found the service did not diminish because of this. The check-in was swift. We had a ground floor room over looking the pool.

We only stayed here for a one night layover but we found the service did not diminish because of this. The check-in was swift. We had a ground floor room over looking the pool. The room was very clean with a huge bed which was extremely comfortable. Nice bar area by the pool and an area to sit outside at the front of the hotel. Breakfast was buffet style. It was small but had enough choice to satisfy most needs. Staff very helpful - they even had a stapler I could use!! It was amusing though on our arrival to see the staff wearing a fleece as it was "cold". It was a balmy 65 at night and we were in short sleeves and requesting a cold beer!!! Hotel is only a short walk (few mins) from the beach Read less

No regrets at all! We shall be staying there again!

Hotel was as expected with rooms a reasonable size. Rooms in building 3 have no elevator access so lots of stairs to climb with luggage, not good for elderly or infirm people. The area is near the beaches and main shopping areas with bars, restaurants etc. Breakfast at the hotel is an American buffet style but the food tended to be cold and needed… Read more
Hotel was as expected with rooms a reasonable size. Rooms in building 3 have no elevator access so lots of stairs to climb with luggage, not good for elderly or infirm people. The area is near the beaches and main shopping areas with bars, restaurants etc. Breakfast at the hotel is an American buffet style but the food tended to be cold and needed to be replenished regularly. Staff were friendly and helpful and my only real issue was overcharging my credit card after my departure! I had prepaid for the 2 night stay including breakfast and only had the resort charges to pay on arrival which was duly settled. On departure I was informed by reception that there were no more charges and everything was settled. Upon checking my credit card account a few days later, I noticed charges that I did I not understand. I contacted the hotel and asked them to forward me a copy of the invoice which showed the additional charges were for the incorrect room rate that I had booked. I forwarded a copy of the booking reference to the hotel for the rate that I had booked and asked for a reversal of the additional charges. No response so emailed again as they have overcharged my credit card account without my consent!! Be aware of this practice and always scrutinise your final invoice before departure as it seems difficult to get any response form the hotel once you have left!! Completed ruined a pleasant stay at this hotel!! Read less

We stayed here for several nights and can happily recommend it as a great place to stay. Situated on James Avenue it is perhaps 15 minutes walk from the top of Ocean Drive and a couple of minutes from Collins Avenue. Despite its closeness to the south beach scene this hotel is peaceful and quiet which is great to come back to. There is a good sized pool to use with plenty of sun loungers and towels plus access to a bar. You can also use the beach sharing loungers with another hotel and this is just five minutes away. You have to use the beach. It is warm and even when busy doesn’t feel crowded. Breakfast has a lot of choice but be mindful that it is typically busy from 07:30 to 08:30. The room we had is a modern queen size which was very comfortable with lots of storage and a great shower. This is a great place to use as a base and was only 25 minutes from Miami Intl. Just be aware that despite the website assertion the rooms are not sound proofed and also there is an additional mandatory fee which is something like $26 plus tax. This is to cover water, towels etc. It’s not necessarily a problem but it isn’t made clear until you arrive. Overall a great hotel and in classic Art Deco style it feels stylish as well. Read less
