My partner and I booked a trip to Miami Beach (a city which we've never visited) for Valentines Day weekend. The trip from the airport to Breakwater was less than 20 minutes. For any hotel in Miami Beach, you need to Valet Park, do not try to find your own parking spot. Breakwater's valet parking policy was great- pull up...

Feel privileged to have stayed in this classic hotel slap bang on Ocean Drive with its Nautical Moderne style.

Sound proofing is good, but live a little this is SoBe...

Loved our stay at Breakwater. Expected it to be loud until the wee hours of the morning. We had a room directly over the night club and we were back by 1 am most nights and had no trouble sleeping. Our windows were not shaking. The club downstairs is Ocean Ten and they had great bands and dj's every night....
