          The location was good right in the middle of south beach.The staff were brilliant and very helpful even recommended the best restruant I have eaten in Miami Joe Stoen Crabs

          Great location, next to the Versace mansion. We had an early flight and the staff was able to give us a room as soon as we arrived. The restaurant downstairs was great! Had 2 for 1 drinks and the food was delicious. Good place to go with friends or with your significant other.

          The rooms are not as big as they appear. The elevators are very slow.

          the location

          Wi-fi internet and phone was available in room. This could not be fixed by staff and no accomidations were made when complaint was made. This was not cool since i booked this hotel based on advertisement of wifi so i could complete work for my job and school. Also there were many hidden fees not advertised on your web.

          location

          room service is non existent. Front desk never answer phone!! Finally I ordered ice and was promised I'll get in 5 minutes but never got it!!! Service is extremely poor.

        • Single
          8.8

          It was convenient to the beach and other nice areas. My room was really big!

          I did not like that i was able to hear people putting away chairs and tables at 5am and then moving them back out at 7am. (Tables and Chairs from the restaurant below or near by)

        • Group of friends
          9.6

          The hotel room was excellent the beach was right across the street and it was right on the strip of the restaurant bars and clubs. Some shopping stores were within the vicinity as well. The taxes on these rooms will definitely bring the rate up to the regular rate so it was like paying for it off thee hotel website so I didn't save any money by booking it under the Booked.net site.

        • Couple
          5.8

          relaxing on the rooftop pool overlooking the Ocean View and location

          Cleanliness of the room, A/C not working

          6.6

          Proximity to the ocean

          Tardiness in the preparation of the room, staff was not very friendly, wrong key Was given to room after long wait

        • Couple
          7.0

          Perfect location on ocean drive right in the heart of south beach life, roof top pool had splendid views over the beach

        • Single
          5.0

          1-No shampoo or conditioner 2-bathroom door broke 3-Internet failed 4-no reception on cell phone in room 4-no toilet paper or tissue (wtf?!) 5- there's a guy knock on door every morning to ask for minibar, wish they had the same enthusiasm on improving house keeping services!! By far, this hotel was beyond not liking, very disappointing. Especially on issue with toilet paper!! Oh, and 6- I was on my own for 4 nights, hotel tried to charge me tax for 2 people, its at least 50 bucks I shouldn't have to pay!! Its all a joke!! Wouldn't go back for sure!

        • Couple
          10.0

          The roof top pool is amazing with the view of Ocean Drive and the ocean.The rooms are all standard with a full fridge, freezer, Oven, microwave and stove, dishwasher and sofa with living room area.

          5.4

          Excellent location. Right on Ocean Dr. and on the beach. Lots to do and see within walking distance.

          Very few amenities. No ice, vending. Very poor housekeeping. Never replaced things like towels and coffee. Didn't clean the room two of the five days. Pictures are deceiving, room was much smaller.

        • Couple
          9.6

          Theis hotel soooo nice. The location is excellent the room was very nice and modern and clean and it is comfortabel. The reception was freindly

        • Single
          6.2

          The comfort and size of the bedroom - kindness of the luggage staff

          My junior suite was good - the view from the balcony was nice but the exhaust of several ac below my floor prevent me from enjoying the view and from using the balcony - I was on the 5th floor and would have been very unhappy on lower floors - front desk staff could be a little more welcoming

        • Older travelers
          6.2

          The roof top pool the bed pillows the bath tub

          The front desk. That is the first think u deal with and they were so not helpful nor did they care. It makes your experience sour from the start of your vacation. They need to be more accommodating toward the guest fell wanting
