Highs & Lows

  • Location, location, location – being able to walk everywhere is key.

  • The best places to go in Miami are all at the Gale, under one roof (The Regent Cocktail Club + Rec Room). Easy breezy.

  • Music at the Rec Room – vinyl throw backs mixed with classic 90’s and so much more.

  • Room service – my AM coffee came in a paper cup.

  • The closets are small, almost non-existent.

  • No spa on site.
