Pleasant staff, nice clean bright room. Great access to the beach and happenings on south beach. Nice bonus is that they supply beach towels and beach chairs.

Had ocean view and just loved it! At night it can be a bit noisy from the restaurant bar downstairs if you head to bed early, if you like to eat and drink then it’s not a problem at all.

The hotel looks exactly like its pictures. A very nice sophisticated place. Everyone was exceptionally nice. Only issue is its not kid friendly as siggested. The nice sleek white furniture in the lobby areas is beautiful. But not for kids. Also the guest needs a different entrance. Because unpacking and dragging bags through the beautiful patio, dining area was difficult for a family with lots of luggage. People are always sitting and eating there. Very nice hotel for adults only. I will definitely return without my grandkids nextt time.. Locstion gets 5 stars.

Very nice hotel. Great proximity to the beach which makes up for not having a pool

I worried about staying on the strip with noise. Ocean drive is where you party! This hotel has a policy of quiet after 11pm so once you’re done and you go to sleep you hear nothing! Solid walls and comfortable beds!
