Exhaling! Exhaling! Exhaling!

Pros: It was relaxing! The decorations in the room and in the hallways. Big ups to Centuri--love your photos!!! The roof top is amazing.
Location: The famous Wet Willies, one or two blocks down. The beach is right across the street.
Love the hostesses, Love the restaurant! Love it's close to everything!

overall ok

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
Place was decent with comfortable beds and clean space. i paid for a roon with a water view though, and only an ostritch would be able to see the water from the room they stuck is in. The dude Alex at the front desk knows Miami will though and is the man to see for recommendations. When I checked in the woman at the front desk forgot to scan our room keys so they didnn't work and I had to go back. Really? Come on thats the only thing you need to do! Overall a pleastn experience though and nice to be on Ocean drive but away from the noise and in a newer facility.

Great Area, Great Staff

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
Went there with my wife and 2 children, ages 10 and 15 in August. Here's what we really liked: * The beach was right across the street. * I can't say enough about each staff member that we spoke with. Each really tried to be helpful with the accommodations and recommendations for a fun stay. * Use of the chairs and umbrellas at the beach. * The room was very clean, had a nice TV, balcony and there were plenty of towels available. * We got a great rate through one of the hotel reservation websites. * My wife and I were pleasantly surprised by the comfortable mattresses, getting a comfortable sleep at a hotel has usually been a problem for me. * The hotel was quiet which worked well for my family. They are generally early-to-bed people. * Was close enough to the excitement of Ocean Drive on South Beach yet maintained a private/quiet atmosphere. * We were close enough to Lincoln Road to walk there. Overall it was an excellent stay and we would definitely stay again.

Very accommodating staff and good location

Pros: Free Internet, Quiet
The manager of the hotel was very accommodating and the staff was extremely helpful. The hotel was boutique-y but very nice and our room was clean, spacious and exceptionally clean and modern.The hotel was across the street from the beach and a short walk to the main streets.
