Built in 1948, the Sea View reminds me of those places shown in movies depicting life on the beach near Miami from the "good old days." Great staff, rooms and beach front all combine to make staying at the Sea VIew a memorable experience.

We stayed here for a conference. This hotel is in Bal Harbour - definitely not a hot-spot, exciting area. If you are looking for a night out on the town you need a car and about a 20 minute drive south. But about the hotel...as you enter the hotel you can tell it is old Miami. Some of the units...

excellent location for Bal Harbour shops. Breakfast staff very friendly and helpful, especially Bobby, who worked at the Sheraton until it closed for re-development. The pool area could do with a bit of attention, especially the pool bar, where there was no atmospheere at all. They would probably do well if somebody went around the guests on loungers offering bar...
