Tropical getaway hotel in the center of all the South Beach action

This boutique Art Deco hotel tempts Miami Beach visitors who want to be close to clubs and the pristine beach. The 64-room property satisfies South Beach fantasies, bringing drama, glitz and history together in one tropical setting. The circa 1937 building has seen its splendor restored in floors, murals and ironwork. Modern accents distinguish the property, and no two rooms are alike.

Highlights
  • Art Deco hotel steps from South Beach clubs, restaurants and shops
  • 64 rooms, including two penthouse suites
  • Wi-Fi access is included in the Resort Fee
Rooms

Stark white linens show off the decor showpiece in the 64 rooms: an oversized picture of local flora and natural elements, usually in green, that spans the entire wall. Each room features a different image. A Czechoslovakian crystal chandelier hangs from the ceiling to remind guests that this is still glamorous South Beach. Every room has a plasma TV and refrigerator.

Features

The hotel is intimate and private without being too far removed from South Beach's go-to sightseeing, shopping and nightlife spots. With Lincoln Road, Ocean Drive, Collins and Washington Avenue just steps away, visitors will find no shortage of restaurants, clubs and boutiques after a day at the beach. The hotel also has private garden terraces, a secluded patio and the quiet President's Green Bar and Restaurant.

In Miami on Business

Pretty Basic Amenities at the hotel, perfect location to stay in on South Beach, stayed here for a convention at the Miami Beach convention center. A $4-$6 cab ride to convention center or a 10-15 min walk. About a 6 minute walk to Walgreens, 1 block away from Ocean Drive....looking for a quick cheap bite, theres Alibi on Espanola Way.....try the Chicken or Cheese Steak. Theres a liquor store close by with a variety of affordable liquors. The continental breakfast is pretty basic. Overall I had a great stay

cute and clean but too mANY EXTRA CHARGES

HOTEL WAS ADORABLE AND CLEAN, however a additional resort fee should be optional, i did not need towels, did not recieve free drink cards, and did not use free breakfast so i paid $15 for nothing, the valet price was ridiculous 30? really? then at checking in the worse part...is that they charge your card twice and put the amount of room stay twice on your card in case of damages, without any notice until you check in. the staff member said it will be put back when you check out. yet when checking out your informed it will take 5 days. ridiculous. how about if there are any damages then you charge my card? thank you for freezing funds and not stating until after i booked and holding them for a week. next time i will find a hotel that is upfront with there booking and fees

Value Priced but Noisy

The staff was nice and attentive. Hotel is also very close to the beach and restaurants. The walls are paper thin. The noise from the hallways is very loud and I could hear pretty much everything that was going on in the room next to me. The house keeping could be better, the bathroom was not all that clean.

Great for the money

This hotel has a nice ambience, very center of the art deco area. The rooms were very attractive, clean but sparse.Lovely large shower , fridge and flat screen TV made the stay comfortable. The staff was accommodating and friendly. We were able to walk down to the local restaurants, get something to eat and sit out on the patio area and people watch. Very close to shops , the beach and restaurants. The hotel does not have a restaurant or coffeemakers in the room so a morning coffee drinker will have to walk down to the coffe shop. There is a fee for WiFi and that is located in the lobby.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

Believe it or not but the local grocer provides the best meals. They serve large portions of Cuban, Spanish style food. There are fresh choices every day. Shopping is on Lincoln and the boutiques are fun to look in. Tons of great restaurants on Collins Ave and on Ocean Dr. The more affordable ones are on Collins and the side streets.

Think Tenement Painted White

I choose this hotel for it's location in the Art Deco region of South Beach Miami, FL. I arrived, and was very dissapointed from the overpowering odor of mildew to the walk up the spongy stairs we escaped to our room. We walked past doors with white computer paper taped to them displaying room numbers and into our very spartanly furnished room. The room reeked of someones food,there were no blankets on the beds, and the worst part was the doors stop 2 inches above the floor. So not only can you hear everything going on in other rooms and the hallway, but all night/morning you can hear the steel doors (of each room) slamming up and down the hallway. If your looking for barely a step above a beach shower/changing room this is your place. For anyone actually looking for something more than a place to change from your bikini to your night club clothes and to pass out in a drunken stupor look elswhere.
