Great location if you came to Miami to party and be in the middle of all the action. A few steps from Wet Willies and across the street from the beach. The hotel was modern but not updated and they offered daily free breakfast. Which is a plus considering South Beach can be pricey. The staff is great! I'd stay...

Stayed for two nights with my wife and kids, hotel looks great and is right across the road from the beach. Staff were all really helpful and pleasant. Reception/foyer area looks amazing. Room was quite small for a family room and had an extremely noisy generator in the alley just below. Breakfast could of had alittle more to offer. We...

I stayed here with two other friends for two nights, one before and one after a weekend-long cruise out of Miami. The hotel is very retro, but updated and spotless, with a great staff. They were very accommodating to our group and completely understood our travel plans - they worked with us to make sure we got a shuttle to...

I spent a night here on my way to Key West. Location was great. Free Mojitos were good and the free breakfast buffet was very good. The only downside is the construction going on at a neighboring hotel... but it stops early enough and we were up by the time it started in the morning. The staff were awesome -...

We stayed there for a night. Great location, right on the south beach as well as good food nearby. They had beach towels and chairs that you could carry to the beach as well. The hotel and the rooms were quite updated. However, we had a tiny room with the window looking over some construction stuff on the building a...

We enjoy the stay in the hotel, we met wonderful people spending their weekend in the Beacon Hotel and we played the billiard. We had relaxing time in there for weekend. But some of the staff members were not friendly as Marco the duty coordinator and Roisin from the Bar.

We stayed here in June 2016. After coming off a cruise ship in Ft Lauderdale, we decided to shoot down to Miami for a day. This hotel is right in the middle of all the action.

So...hotel right on Ocean drive is a plus point as is the breakfast. Staff are very helpful & friendly too. The hotel looks very modern from the carefully chosen photos you see on the booking sites but what they don't tell you is that you have to be a contortionist to access the toilet or bath tub! Now don't get...

Hello Suzy, While we are happy to know that you enjoyed our staff and location, it's disappointing that your overall experience was not. We can understand that boutique hotels are not for everyone as they are known for their smaller room types. Most of ocean drive's consist of Art Deco boutique properties that were built in the late 1930's to...
