Loved the atmosphere and the ambiance of the property. It was very clean, and they were very responsive to all of our needs. They offer beach chairs and an umbrella too, which already come in the room. I was a little disappointed with the "partial ocean view" room only because it was a bit misleading.... It was across the street, and another building in front of the "sliver" of an ocean view that we were expecting. It was located on the quieter part of ocean drive, which was great if you don't like a busy atmosphere at night..... but close enough to be in walking distance of the great food, activities and entertainment of ocean drive.

Thank you for your feedback. We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay despite the miscommunication with the "Partial Ocean View" room. We state it as "Partial" due to us not being an oceanfront property. We hope this does not steer you away from booking with us again on your next visit to Miami. Aside, from that, we take pride in being responsive to all the needs of our guests and are glad you experienced it first hand. We hope to see you again soon.

Exhaling! Exhaling! Exhaling!

Pros: It was relaxing! The decorations in the room and in the hallways. Big ups to Centuri--love your photos!!! The roof top is amazing.
Location: The famous Wet Willies, one or two blocks down. The beach is right across the street.
Love the hostesses, Love the restaurant! Love it's close to everything!

overall ok

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
Place was decent with comfortable beds and clean space. i paid for a roon with a water view though, and only an ostritch would be able to see the water from the room they stuck is in. The dude Alex at the front desk knows Miami will though and is the man to see for recommendations. When I checked in the woman at the front desk forgot to scan our room keys so they didnn't work and I had to go back. Really? Come on thats the only thing you need to do! Overall a pleastn experience though and nice to be on Ocean drive but away from the noise and in a newer facility.

Great Area, Great Staff

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
Went there with my wife and 2 children, ages 10 and 15 in August. Here's what we really liked: * The beach was right across the street. * I can't say enough about each staff member that we spoke with. Each really tried to be helpful with the accommodations and recommendations for a fun stay. * Use of the chairs and umbrellas at the beach. * The room was very clean, had a nice TV, balcony and there were plenty of towels available. * We got a great rate through one of the hotel reservation websites. * My wife and I were pleasantly surprised by the comfortable mattresses, getting a comfortable sleep at a hotel has usually been a problem for me. * The hotel was quiet which worked well for my family. They are generally early-to-bed people. * Was close enough to the excitement of Ocean Drive on South Beach yet maintained a private/quiet atmosphere. * We were close enough to Lincoln Road to walk there. Overall it was an excellent stay and we would definitely stay again.
