The hotel is beautiful!! The staff is awesome and very friendly. It’s in a great location to everything. We walked everywhere. The only negative is the bathroom is extremely small and the door is a frosted glass (see through). We will definitely be back

The one positive thing about this location was they provide you with beach chairs, towels, and bottled water for your day at the beach.

Old Miami Art Deco style was great. Staff was great. Elevator needs an upgrade though and shower was tight fit to close the shower door.

Had ocean view and just loved it! At night it can be a bit noisy from the restaurant bar downstairs if you head to bed early, if you like to eat and drink then it’s not a problem at all.
