weekend getaway

I really enjoyed my stay. The room seemed a little cramped up (king bed, city view) but overall it was good. It was clean and had everything I needed. We arrived earlier than check in, and they accommodated us ASAP. One thing I will say is that their concierge desk could answer the phone once in awhile. I walked into the hotel and saw someone working the desk but had a question once I got to my room. I tried to call the desk a couple of times but no one answered. I decided to go down and the same guy was still there so I'm under the impression he ignored the call- or there could have been something wrong with the phone connection. Pool area was beautiful, and the beach very accessible. Staff was very friendly. Food was good. I would definitely come back again.

An excellent stay

On my first night in an ocean view room a small flood occurred - the cause unknown. Without hesitation I was upgraded by the manager to a cabana suite with complimentary breakfast and late checkout thrown in. The service continued to be excellent for my whole stay. I would recommend the National to anyone, single travellers, families and people on business. The close proximity to Lincoln avenue is a bonus. I would stay again but would now want to stay in one of the cabana rooms!

Beautiful Hotel

There's not another hotel in So. Beach that equals The National in style, beauty and location. One issue - internet access value is very close to the price = free. Not really good enough for a business traveler.

Needs some work

Two stars at best now for this price. I have stayed there several times over the last few years. Was great at first, but was going downhill each stay. Decided to continue to stay there after the remodel of the cabaña rooms, which are nice enough. But the service is spotty at best and other areas and amenities continue to go downhill. The hotel should be embarrassed to charge for beach use, the chairs are useless, This trip we were only able use the beach 2 of the 4 days we were there as the chairs are so torn, tattered and broken as to not be usable. My neck still hurts. In May we could only able to stand it for 1 ½ of the 3 days there, but as it appeared then that many of the umbrellas were new we thought surely the chairs will be fine by next trip. You used to get 2 towels there, both at the beach or by the pool, but I guess in a cost savings measure have cut people down to one towel both at the beach as well as the pool, almost always last to get the beach chairs out (that is not new though).

Wonderful weekend

We stayed at the new poolside cabana room and the room was very modern and clean and chic. The size was a bit smaller than I was expecting but no complaints here. The balcony that comes with each of the cabana rooms was such a nice addition. The pools were very nice and it was never crowded. There were maybe 20 people in the pool at most at one time but normally more like 5-10 people. The beach staff was accommodating and worked hard to make sure there were chairs and umbrellas around. The chairs and cushions could definitely use some updating but the staff made sure to use 2 cushions per chair to make it more comfortable. We tried the bar (but not the restaurant) and the bartender was extremely friendly. Food at the bar was delicious -- and they certainly are generous with the portions! Would definitely recommend.
