Took a chance on this place, worked out well
Having never been to South Beach, I really had no idea where to stay so took a flier on this place and it worked out well, even stayed an extra night. The beach is across the street and many restaurants/bars nearby. The free breakfast is very good and a bit more than continental. We had eggs, sausage ($2 extra), juice, coffee and a piece of fruit. More than enough. I would recommend parking down the street (13th street and one block over) for $20 per day rather than using valet parking for $40 per day. You can pull right up front and load or unload also. The front desk people are very competent. We stayed two days on two separate reservations, but it was no problem. Same room, just had to briefly check out and check back in (took 60 seconds). Do be advised of the $21+ daily resort fee (I think it may be more for more than 2 people), and the $100 deposit on the room. We really liked this place and will return for future visits.

Poor1.0 / 5
Hotel was conveniently located on the beach, however when I made the reservation I specifically asked for a rollaway bed. When I arrived I got told there was a $25 charge, which I was not informed about before hand, but was okay with paying. I went to the room & waited an hour for the rollaway bed. It never came & when I called the lobby I got told it wouldn't be coming because of the room size. A call to my room to inform me seemed necessary to me, but the staff thought otherwise. They were not very helpful just told me there was nothing they could do. Breakfast was very bland. One scrambled egg with fruit that seemed to be from the day prior with a piece of toast. Probably wouldn't stay again.

Wifi password did not work. Shower has no barrier so water gets all over the floor.
