Great experience!

This is the second time when I stay at GBH and it was a great experience. I even got the same room:) which was very nice. I really like this place! The hotel is not too big, not too small; is not too far from South Beach; the service is great; the beach is nice. I will go back for sure.

Pristine, new hotel with beach access

The hotel had been open less than a month when we checked in. So, there were some expected quirks. For example, when we arrived, the safe had no batteries and was not installed (i.e., not securely fastened in the closet). However, after calling the front desk and returning from dinner, the staff had that resolved. It was a nice feeling to see such a quick response. One other note ... we booked a listing that said "ocean view". However, that doesn't mean a head-on ocean view. It was actually on the side of the hotel with a better than expected view of both the Indian Creek (left) and the ocean (right) on either ends of the balcony view. I'm guessing the more expensive ocean view listings are more likely a head-on ocean view. Like virtually all hotels in the area, they charge $25/day for valet parking ... and no self-parking is available. So, to travel to the nightlife, hop on the S or L bus lines that run right in front of the hotel. It's cheaper to get a day pass for unlimited rides for $5/day ... check miami dade transit for more info.

Relaxing Stay

We arrived early after departing a cruise ship. The counter staff and bellhops were extremly friendly and helpful. They took care of our baggage and we were able to enjoy fabulous Miami Beach that was just a few steps away beyond the very impressive ground floor outdoor pool area. After a few hours lounging on the beach we were able to check in early and get a great lunch on the outdoor patio. We then hung out on the seventh floor outdoor adult pool area enjoying a few cocktails. The room itself was very spacious clean and comfortable. The morning before checkout we had room service breakfast on our outdoor balcony! I'd stay here again in a heartbeat.. Thx!

This is what a Hotel is supposed to be

I was in town with family and decided to choose this hotel based on what i saw online. I was not dissappointed when i got there, the hotel was everything i imagined it would be and i was very impressed. The rooms are so clean and nice, the hotel staff was so friendly and catered to your every need. The rooms are also very spacious. We had a small problem with the drain in our bathtub, we stepped out for a minute, by the time we returned the problem was fixed and the bathroom was left so clean and neat with plenty of new fresh towels. Housekeeping gets an A++, they were awesome, they made us happy and comfortable. I think my only complaint is the food, it was pretty small and there wasn't much variety but i didn't care so much as long as there was food, but some may not like that. Other than that, it was great and worth it!
