I will never stay anywhere else on South Beach!!! The Natalie "Twins" were fantastic hosts all weekend! Loved the free bikes, breakfast, and beach accessories. Rooftop suite has spectacular views and premium in-suite and balcony accommodations, with lovely modern upgrades and finishes!

Very nice place. Great bar. Great location. Right in the heart of South Beach. Our room was in the back of the building and very quiet but if you look over the bar area it is noisy. If you want a more quiet area go north on Collins Ave. Overall a great place to stay.
