Happy hour drink special was a joke! 2 for 1 was 48$ with more ice than alcohol. I had 2 separate requests prior to check in and neither of them were met. 1 request ocean view room I paid for could not see the ocean from room 2 early check in was not met either.

The location is perfect and the staff was so helpful and friendly. Our room was very comfortable and clean. The hotel has been up-dated with new showers, mini bar and great beds. Our room included breakfast and it was very good. We will stay there again.

We had a cocktail at the bar during happy hour. Regular cocktails cost $16, so we thought the price should be lower than that. We got a giant bowl with lots of ice and some cocktail in it. We paid $48 for two cocktails! On request they said this is the Happy Hour Special...

Good hotel on ocean drive. Nice staff. Beds are comfy. Rooms clean. Took a little while to get our room... Slloooooooooowwww maid service omg Anyway... Not a big deal. Beside the hotel is a bar that plays live music every night... So if you don't like noise, don't stay here or ask for a room on the quiet side.

Really nice hotel right on South Beach. Room was updated, very clean and quiet. Staff at the bar and restaurant were great - Very entertaining and accommodating. Caught a couple of good live bands. Valet parking is difficult.

Traveling back from the Keys, my husband and I stayed for a few days in Miami and had a great time. This Hotel is adjacent to a restaurant and outside bar with live music. Staff was great, room was clean. Drinks can be very expensive, your paying for the atmosphere and party scene. We were on vacation and vacations can...

The only reason I'm giving this hotel one star is because 0 stars is not an option. Everything and I mean everything that you may have read in the previous reviews are all true. I read the worst reviews Going Back 2 years and to date they are all still relevant. Do not do as we did and think that...
