I Had the best check in experience ever with Michelle. She was very accommodating and friendly. Even though our room wasn't ready when we arrived, she was able to get us something temporarily so that my wife and I could shower I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Michelle and Jane are awesome! They helped me out a lot during check in. They also made my staying experience pleasant and easy . Restaurants are walking distance. Miami beach is a short drive away. I would recommend staying here.
