We recently stayed here for 4 nights in the beginning of May. The place is immaculately clean. Rooms are as pictured on websites. The staff was friendly and helpful. The location is also good, being only one block from Lummus Park. This hotel has no amenities as in the sense of a pool, outdoor seating area, restaurant, etc. But this...

We apologize for the confusion. The signs you are referring to were located in front of the REPLAY clothing store, and is not affiliated with Jetset Franklin. This was explained when you arrived in our office at 11:00 AM informing the front desk you couldn't find the check in, and that you had already reserved at another hotel. When we...

Stayed here for two days. Staff was so helpful and nice. Very quiet place to stay in the heart of south beach. Room was more like an apartment then a hotel room. Interior of room very modern. Short walk to shopping, bars, and restaurants. Was very nice to be only one street away from the beach. Will stay here again...

The accommodations were perfect for us. Tons of space and stylishly appointed. Amazing location. Friendly staff. There's nothing more I could have asked for.
