This hotel is in a great location, right on Ocean Drive. Although there is nothing wrong with the hotel, there is nothing right with it, except the staff who area always pleasant and friendly.
The rooms are clean and comfortable but lack any drawers or storage. This is fine if you are just overnighting, but not if you are vacationing for a week or so. The rooms have wooden floors, which look great, but... The reason that most hotels don't use wooden floors is that they are noisy, and here you can hear every footstep of the people in the room above! $5.50 for a bottle of bottled water left as a courtesy is just a rip off, not courteous at all. Although there is a mini bar in the room and a deposit taken at check in, it remained locked.
The bathrooms are tiny, which isn't a problem, except there's nowhere to put anything. Form over function... Looks ok but doesn't work.
Although there is free wi-fi, there's no business centre making it difficult if you need to print airline boarding passes or require a computer.
The staff check in and house keeping work station should not be set within the guest rooms on the second floor it needs to be back of house to minimise the early morning disruption to guest sleep at 7.30am!
Having said all of the above, I would consider staying here again, but, this hotel, with a little remodelling could be a real "boutique hotel" and a diamond destination on Ocean Drive.
