Great hotel. The room was amazing. I have been to Miami numerous times and this is by far the greatest room I have had. Stayed in a Junior Suite and i will definitely be returning to this hotel. We had a balcony, king size bed, full kitchen, sofa bed. It was an open room set up, I just loved it....

Stayed here for one night before heading out on our cruise. The location was perfect and we had a room with an amazing view. Miguel and Stephanie helped us with everything on our stay. Would definitely stay again next time I'm in Miami.

Location is good, right across the street is the beach and surrounded by restaurants. Close to convenience store and bike rentals. Place is good for family with lots of space and the kitchen is clean. I will stay again at this place on my family's next visit.

I just got back from South Beach, and had an amazing time. We had a 1 bedroom suite with kitchen. The rooms are on the smaller side but they have everything you need and they are spotless. We fit 4 women in the room comfortably, the pull out in the living room is surprisingly comfortable. The location is the best...

I was on vacation at South Beach, which should have been great in and of itself. Only problem, I had missed my flight, arriving late. When I arrived, the room wasn't ready.
