Great location, personalized service, extremely clean. Only problem is rooms are small & no drawers

Would recommend Sun, Dec 13, 2015
Great location in South Beach, a 2 minute walk to Lummus Park. Across from the Delano, Ritz, Sagamore, Marseilles, and Di Lido of the Ritz Carlton. Easy and safe for walking, shopping, dining and beaching. Very modern, contemporary hotel. Staff service is personalized with only 87 rooms. Roof top deck had beautiful 360 degree view. Pool water was bathtub warm in Dec, even with rain. 400 thread sheets were very comfortable. All linen was very white, almost like new. Instead of valet parking, walked only two short blocks away for safe public parking in a Miami Beach city lot for only $16 per day. Continental breakfast was included: coffee, juice, croissant, and a big bowl of fresh cut fruit. Concierge was knowledgeable and helpful. Good insulation: even on the second floor, never heard the restaurant, bar, or even night club. Lemon ice water available 24 hours a day even champagne in the evening. Fresh apples and bananas available in the fitness room. Wonderful place, and would return without any hesitation.

Great hotel and staff

Would recommend Thu, Nov 26, 2015
The staff is so accommodating and makes you feel so at home. They are friendly and make you feel like you have known them forever. Convenient location. I know the rooms are small but it would be nice to have a chair in the room. The rooftop pool is great with wonderful views. Restaurant wonderful.

Ants in room, dirty sheets, slow housekeeping

Would not recommend Thu, Oct 29, 2015
We had originally booked a signature double room (sleeps 4) but upon arrival it was clear to see that there was no way 3 people and luggage could fit into the room. It was so narrow with limited storage space so no space for us or our suitcases. The bathroom was completely see through aswell which doesn't suit a family. We then upgraded to the kascades suites (across the road) which was a much better sized room (again see through bathroom but we had a shower curtain put in) however we soon noticed that we had ants on all the walls and surfaces in the room. We called the front desk who said they would send round housekeeping who took nearly 45 minutes to come and spray the room. Before that we waited 30 minutes for housekeeping to come and change a stained sheet. Their housekeeping is very slow to respond which was frustrating. The spray didn't work as we still had ants the next day. We were then moved again to another suite the next day which was better but then on the last day I found ants on our bed. Overall I was very disappointed and angry with this hotel. We had also paid a resort fee which included 2 lounge chairs and towels at the beach. As we were 3 people in the room I asked if we would get 3 loungers to which front desk replied yes. We then got to the beach to be told we could only have 2 and that this 'miscommunication' with front desk happens all the time. Service overall was extremely bad.
