Ok, I have stayed at this hotel at least ten times. It's consistently good and the location is fantastic! It's a sexy, adult gem right in the best part of South Beach. Most of my trips have been in off-season. My advice, bring your partner and leave the kids at home to stay here. They take kids, but why would you bring your kids to South Beach?!?!?!?
So, the best part, the rooftop pool! It's very laid-back and sexy. It's "European" or "Miami" or whatever you want to call it. The bottom line is that you can wear whatever you want or don't want here (topless). The pool is run by the bartenders and they are great! Especially Martin (that's Mar-Tin, with the accent on the last syllable). They make great drinks, and do whatever to make you happy. The pool is generally not too busy depending at what time of the year you go. Please, ladies, take your tops off at this pool!! It makes everyone else more comfortable and you're in Miami! LOL...
One other thing to know about the pool: they lock it up at night but there's a back stairway that takes you up there 24 hours. Great for midnight skinny-dip ;-)
The rooms aren't spectacular here; they are small but very functional and well designed by Todd Oldham. They have been exactly the same for the last ten years, but that's okay; they still work. The beds are comfy and the showers are great! Besides, who wants to hang out in your room? You're in Miami, Trick!!!!
That said, get out and play! The Hotel is a central location to see all the fun of SoBe. My advice, you won't need a car here. Shopping, the beach, restaurants, bars, etc. are just a few blocks away. Just walk or cab; it unless you want to head up to Haulover Beach (Miami's nude beach, which, BTW, is the best nude beach I've ever been to). You can take the bus up A1A to get there ..... but that's another review.
So, leave the kiddies at home and stay here for a sexy Miami getaway...
