My 5th time here was just the same as my other stays, excellent. Super comfy bed, clean, modern rooms, great staff, and location. Excellent rooftop pools was enjoyed my sexy topless wife and I. Not sure why other guest do not use the pool? We will be back!

I adore this hotel...The location is perfect. On the quite side of Ocean drive, but by only 2 blocks and you are right where the action starts. Also close to great shopping areas on Collins a few blocks away within walking distance. Also 1 block away from pharmancy/drug store and liquor store. The King suite does have a little refrigerator...

This is a beautiful hotel in Miami. The rooms are very clean and the hotel staff will make you feel very comfortable. Sydney was the best and very friendly he made our stay extra special. I would really recommend this hotel to everyone and will definitely stay there again.

Sense hotel is on the quite site of Ocean Drive. It is about 40 meter from the beach. The rooms are modern and the bathroom is big with two showers. We booked a room with partial view of the ocean. If you stand on the balcony of your room you will see the ocean. Look at the price before you...

I had booked two rooms, one for us, one for the couple we were traveling with. The room itself was lovely and very big--a corner room, very spacious and modern, with a nice wrap-around balcony. But the lovely room came with a fairly steep price (the total for one couple came to over $650 for two nights). The hotel is...

We were expecting to spend a grand last night in this hotel on Ocean Drive in South Beach and were attracted by a seeming discount of 40% off. Seeming only, because at 7:30 AM when the bulldoser, dump truck et. al. went into action on the road works 50 m from our hotel room, we understood that this was no...
