We came for a weekend and stayed in a suite, which was great value for money and has surprisingly good facilities. The location is perfect, right in the thick of South Beach. The bars and restaurant looked nice but we didn't get a chance to try them. Staff were great too. The only minor point was there were a couple...

I stayed at the Gale Hotel on my return from a long Latin American trip. I like eccentric boutique-y hotels and I had stayed at the Marlin, down the street, on my way down and loved it, but they were booked for my return dates. My room at the Gale was large and comfortable with a nice balcony. But I...

We didn't stay at this hotel but needed a late dinner after UK flight into Miami.The location and building architecture is pure Art Deco magic. We were greeted with exemplary professionalism coupled with Italian style and warmth. Our outside table was perfect for watching the Collins Avenue nightlife and Supercar activity. The menu and food was first class and fully...

I had read the reviews from Trip Advisor which were spot on. Searching area hotels, this was by far the best value for the money. This hotel is not as large as the typical "W" Hotel, but it reminded me in terms of furnishings and experience as the W. We got a room with a large balcony which was really...

A classic 'Art Deco' hotel well situated within easy walking distance of the beach and the main shopping road. The restaurant 'Dolce' was very good offering a good service from breakfast to dinner. It was very popular with reservations necessary for a table in the evening. Some rooms are better situated than others. Staff were helpful.

Location is great - central to everything and only one block from beach. Across from Delano and one block from Lincoln Road. Can't really ask for a better location for a boutique hotel. Great restaurant Dolce, located right in hotel. Most rooms are spacious and the large rooms have beautifully furnished balconies. The front staff were exceedingly helpful and Cassandra...

Let me first say the rooms, while clean, small and tidy were sort of underwhelming. But I'm going to ease up on that because the entire hotel looks like it recently went through a smart renovation. These days, the 4 star hotel category can really vary (not a 4 star room). But I only paid $152 dollars for a room...

We like to eat early for dinner (i.e. before 7pm). We went here at 5pm and had a few drinks and food as part of their happy hour (from 5-8pm). Drinks were well priced and the food was really good - no complaints. Good atmosphere. the only down side was that if you want the happy hour then you have...
