Relaxing atmosphere and more service oriented than most hotels on South Beach

Do the Sunday brunch if you are here on a Sunday. While the breakfast is terrific any day, brunch is a must do. There isn’t much more to write than what others have, but it was a great stay. I think the hotel may need a refresh in a few years, but this is an institution here because the hotel is very welcoming. The food is great, and so is the location. I usually stay at the One hotel, which is still my favorite due to its light and airy theme, great rooftop pool, and awesome gym. But, it was fun to stay here to check out a different place.

The Best Hotel I have ever been in.

Burleson, Texas

From the second you walk in this exquisite hotel you will be treated very very good, they spoil you from the free drinks in the fridge to the free breakfast buffets to the free slippers and the awesome soaps and such... great location in Miami Beach and you get your own lounge chair and umbrella on the beach and they have three pools all different temperatures. gosh I have nothing but good to say about this hotel. Oh they will also pick you up from the airport for free.
