I had a superior room. It was large, clean, and very comfortable. Wifi worked great. Elevators are a bit slow, but they all are in the Art Deco district. Natalie at the front desk was very helpful and kind.

In past years, this hotel may have been considered as 'boutique', however it's clear that the owners have went to great lengths to add a modern twist, as well as upgrades to create standards outside of the normal accommodations typically offered on South Beach.
