Boutique beauty on legendary Ocean Drive near nightlife, shopping

This 75-room hotel is located on neon-lit Ocean Drive. It entices guests with a true South Beach experience. The boutique hotel boasts lovely Art Deco touches such as inlaid tile floors and etched glass.  The hotel is oceanfront and packs value into the price. Guests receive free Wi-Fi, beach towels and chairs to use during their stay, free coffee Seattle's Best coffee in the mornings and a free continental breakfast at Johnny Rockets next door.

Highlights
  • Boutique Art Deco hotel on legendary Ocean Drive, the center of South Beach nightlife
  • Walk to Collins and Washington avenues and Lincoln Road
  • Sidewalk dining at The Place Restaurant, plus continental breakfast at Johnny Rockets next door
  • Free Wi-Fi, in-room beach towels, beach chairs and Seattle's Best coffee  
Rooms

The lobby is a show of neon light, geometric upholstery and a stunning mezzanine. The 73 rooms and two VIP suites, however, are more subtle in style. Some rooms benefit from beach views and all are decorated in a tasteful palette of beige and white. Marble floors keep feet cool after a long day at the beach.

 

Guests rest on 320-thread count Italian linens and Serta Perfect Sleeper Beds. In every room, free Wi-Fi, LCD flatscreens and IP phones are standard. Room service is also available.

Features

As a nightlife destination, South Beach is an undisputed capital. But there's people watching to be done from this hotel, too. Request a sidewalk table at The Place for some of the best entertainment on Ocean Drive, live music and fresh mojitos from The Bar.

 

Prime oceanfront space isn't the only draw. Travelers on the budget will be grateful for the free continental breakfast at Johnny Rockets next door (9 a.m. to 11 a.m.), free Seattle's Best coffee (7 a.m. to 11 a.m.) and free beach towels and chairs to use during their stay.

Great location but not so great value

the stay was good, especially considering the location, which was unbeatable. however the hotel room is small, a bit stuffy, and the sound insulation was not good. in future I would go a little farther from South Beach and find a better valued hotel. staff are very helpful though.

Great Staff!

Great staff. Everyone was very helpful, professional & courteous. They really wanted to make sure that I was happy. The room was great - clean, large and surprisingly quiet given all the action happening on the street. My only negative is the hostess & server in the restaurant. I know that breakfast is included w/my room, but don't seat me at a bad table below a loud speaker & then ignore me. She took my order & I never saw her again. No water. No "how is everything?". Nothing. They were more focused in getting people off the street at the expense of paying guests.

Great location for fun

Great location, easy access to the beach. Valet parking takes too long. You have to plan ahead when you leave with the car.

Tiny Room

Tiny room, absolutely NO counter space in the bathroom!! I'm a girl.. where am i supposed to put my makeup? my blow dryer? toiletries? ect... The location is good if you want to be in a tourist trap area, over pay for average food and have people smoking at the table next to you while eating as well as pedestrians bumping your chair. Ocean drive is for amateurs! Stay at a better hotel on Collins!! The room is not worth the price. I won't ever stay here again. The only good thing about this hotel is the water shower pressure and free breakfast. Also they tell you they provide chairs on the beach for you... BE AWARE this means there are 2 beach chairs in your hotel that you must lug back and forth to the beach yourself... BOOO!!! This should be a 2 star hotel.

Nice Hotel

It is a very nice, friendly, and clean boutique hotel. THe bathroom is a bit small but you spend minimal time in the room so it is not an issue.
