The hotel location is superb as you can move around easily on foot. The famous Miami ink is only 10min walk away including Dash store and Collins avenue. The beach is a minute walk from the hotel door. The staff at sense were very welcoming and friendly and advised us on where to go for cheap eats as well as...

Great location, we were able to walk everywhere we needed (although the heat is a killer). Staff at the front desk were helpful, some more than others. The room was great, clean & tidy with plenty of room. Balcony is only small & the ocean view is only just, probably not worth the extra &&

Reading my other reviews you'll see my experiences with "boutique" hotels. Some are very well done (Matrix Edmonton), others cheap attempts at class. Sense has image of an upscale hotel, but upon further inspection one finds it is poorly run and inconsistent. Many reviewers have cited the hotel for its cleanliness and off-South Beach proximity, which this hotel has. The...

This was our second visit to South Beach last year we stayed at the Park Central, glad we changed to the Sense a far superior hotel. Friendly staff and Alex makes your visit more pleasurable due to his knowledge of the local area and his friendliness. The rooms are clean and comfortable with coffee machine and fridge, and the bathroom...

Good location, friendly staff, breakfast service is though missing for this type of hotel. Close to the Ocean drive restaurants, without the noise. The beach is only one block away, the hotel provides towels and beach chairs. Alex provides very good recommendations, you'll get addresses that only the locals know.
