We arrived in Miami on 10 March 2012 during Spring Break weekend and stayed for 4 nights. Luckily the hotel is located on the quieter side of Ocean Drive so we weren't disturbed by the partygoers during our visit. The hotel is chic and minimalistic. The glass doors open into a lovely white, air conditioned lobby area with white leather...

Scanning any review site has become a double edged sword as a personal screening tool – you can really like the look of a potential purchase for lots of reasons yet get put off by just a few adverse review comments. I searched long and hard before I picked this hotel for two nights in SOBE with my wife following...

Location of hotel perfect was perfect for us. We were on Ocean Drive but did not have to worry about all the noise & crowds when we wanted to go back to our hotel at the end of the evening for a good night's sleep. Just across the street from the beach & hotel offered free beach chairs & towels...

We arrived about 230pm and the rooms were not ready, they ended up not being ready until after 5pm.When I asked the front desk person for advise on recommendations for "happy hour", she responded with...

We were sold a "Deluxe Ocean View" (I still have their email confirming this). Sense Hotel is on 4th St. You cabn only have an ocean view from 5th St on. We...

Room was nice. It was very clean. Location is good, close to everything but still quite. Staff was friendly. My only problem was a water pipe that was rattling in the wall of our room. Every once in a while it would rattle pretty loudly. The one evening I went down to the front desk to ask about the noise....

I loved staying here and would stay again without hesitation. The beds were comfortable (Tempur-Pedic), bathroom clean, and location terrific. It was awesome to be close to the beach and far from the noise of Ocean Drive north of Fifth Street. The hotel had lightweight beach chairs, umbrellas, and extra towels available and was located close to a Walgreens for...

The room - gorgeous! Service - exceptional! Location - if using public transport from miami int.airport, will take a little while to walk from where dropped off but otherwise - close to the beach (perfect for early morning sunrise), close to all bars/restaurants etc, walking distance to shopping.
