I would not tell a friend to stay there

Pros: Nothing
The overall looks of the hotel is nice. The staff is HORRIBLE. I called several times to have someone come to my room because the air was not working. The worker came upstairs and close my blinds and left the room and never fixed the air. The bus man was all over the place and didn't help with the bags. The elevators are super small and you have to wait a long time for one. The serves at the bar was the worst ever... I had to asked the lady if she was having a bad day due to the way she didnt want to serve us and the looks that she was given. I would NEVER stay at this place again. While there I heard several people complaining about the hotel. When I checked out no one even asked how was your stay. Customer Service does not is not present there!!

This hotel is the worst hotel I have stayed in!

Pros: nothing
Cons: everything
Location: southbeach
The experience overall for this hotel is the worst place I have ever been in! There where cracks all over the walls stains on my sheets and no fridge or microwave! For the money I spent I should had had chocolates on my pillow! Tried contacting the general manager and for some funny reason the hotel has not seen him in weeks! I would like some of my money back for this crappy So called hotel!

Please accept my apology for the disappointments you experienced during your stay. I doubt that I am able to change your impression of the hotel; however I wish that your concerns would be brought up during your stay to the front office where we would make every possible effort to make everything right. Only the suites offer refrigerators and microwaves. I regret that your expectations were not met. I wish you a better stay in the future.

It's just okay

I went with three other people, and we all stayed in a double bed room. The room was a tight sqeeze. It was clean and the bed was comfy. It had more of a holiday inn quality to it. The bathroom was extremely small. I would have rather stayed at the Dorchester again which is the sister hotel down the block. The rooms are bigger there. The pool was under renovation but it looked small. The beach is close and hey give you umbrella and chair passes. I liked the lobby and the happy hour. I love how it's in the middle of everything. If youre looking for a party area not much sleep, luxury or comfort. This is the spot.

Very friendly staff

The room seemed to be in the process of being redecorated. The bathroom was beautifully redecorated, but the room itself, was very boring. It didn't even have a picture on the wall.

Great staff and service!

The overall service was great. The staff was very friendly. When I called for extra towels, I didn't wait long at all...within 5 or so minutes. The smell of the hotel was refreshing. The hotel was very clean despite some renovations.

This hotel made me feel very comfortable

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, 24 hr pool
I stood here with my sister and a friend to celebrate my sister's bday and i fell inlove with this hotel. The staff are very friendly and helpful, the room was beautiful, comfy and spacious. The room was also super clean.with clean linen/towels as well. The room came with a balcony which we loved and enjoyed the view of the beach. I would certainly recommend this Hotel to a friend and would also like to stay again:-)

this hotel was not worth the money

Pros: Close restaurants
Cons: dirty
A friend and I stayed here three nights and four days. The air conditioning didn't work. The room was dirty especially the mirrors, they looked like they've never been cleaned. Our first night there we found a cockroach in the little fridge that didn't work, by the way. Parking is $30 and its not even on the property, its up the block and around the corner in a lot that's small and looks abandoned. I do not recommend this hotel!

I was very pleased with my stay.

Pros: Close restaurants, Quiet, close to beach, close to boardwalk, close to parking lots, close to shops, close to entertainment
Cons: No free Internet
I had read many reviews there was good and bad so I decided to stay and we had a great time that we will be returning with family and friends. It is located in a perfect location. Great pool, service, and very welcoming. I definitely will recommend.
