Casa Faena

A sensual Spanish boutique hotel

The classic Casa Faena has a rich history, this stylish hotel was original built in 1928 and the architecture has been influenced by Miami Beach's early Spanish roots. The design of the hotel is quaint and full of character but just steps away from the hip Collins Avenue as well as one block away from the soft sands of South Beach and the entertainment of Ocean Drive this is one hotel without compromise.

Drab and dirty

New York City, New York

First off, it's important to note that a lot of things in Miami have the word "Faena" in the name. There is the Faena Hotel and then this place, Casa Faena. COMPLETELY different. I did not know this and thought I was booking Faena Hotel when I actually booked Casa Faena, not knowing they are two different hotels. You can imagine my surprise when I checked in to learn the Faena Hotel is a few blocks down and much nicer, larger and has more going on than Casa Faena. Don't make this same mistake I did. When we arrived there was no one to help us with our luggage, which we had to haul up steep stairs alone. Then there was no one inside the lobby, it was like a ghost town. Finally we saw someone who checked us in, and this is where I learned of my mistake and that there is a difference between Casa Faena and Faena. There is no pool at Casa Faena and guests can not use the Faena hotel's pool. There is a beach across the street for Casa Faena guests and they can't use the beach area for Faena Hotel guests (Faena is right on the beach). I was so angry and annoyed at my mistake when I learned this! What hotel in Miami doesn't have a pool?! Casa Faena is small and the rooms are small too. I booked a "suite" and I would be scared to see what a normal room is like here, our "suite" was so small. The walls are also very thin and we had a hard time sleeping due to noise in a nearby room. Our room was also drab and dirty with a ton of scuff marks on the walls and stains on linens and furniture. I believe it is pretty new and it is already in need of a complete overhaul! We didn't interact with the staff much but when we did it was uncomfortable and lackluster- the check in was miserable as well as the beach attendant who was incredibly uninterested in us and wouldn't even help us move our chairs to be in the sun when the spot we were in got shady. We asked him nicely, and had already tipped him as soon as we got to the beach, and he refused to help us move. There are some nice interior design elements and cute furniture in common areas in the lobby, which is the only thing I liked. I'm incredibly mad at myself for making this mistake not realizing there is CASA Faena and regular Faena. Don't stay here unless you're on a tight budget. I want to try to get a refund our stay was so miserable and we were so grossed out by the dirty room, but everyone I dealt with at the hotel was awful I'm sure it would not be easy!
