  • Great location if you want to be right in the middle of South Beach. On the beach, next to Delano, one block from Lincoln road.

  • Superb mini bar situation. It’s like whoa...they read my mind.

  • The ‘hottest’ hotel in South Beach if you like pool parties, DJs beautiful, barely dressed people…weekends are a crazy/fun party scene.

  • It’s Philippe Starck’s greatest hits. There’s a lot of ‘stuff’ everywhere and I think a little less is more would’ve gone a long way…but that’s just me.

  • Room size is challenging...but then who wants to be in the room!?
