Stayed here in a penthouse suite for 7 nights, initially very bad impression - AC didn't work in the room at all. Attempts were made to fix it very quickly but required an engineer. Unfortunately couldn't be called out the evening of arrival due to weather, resulting in a very sleepless night at 85f. The following day it was fixed fortunately. Would expect this to have been checked pre check in as rather critical and they said that they'd been experiencing issues on the floor.
We also booked through booking.com where the penthouse suites are advertised as having a balcony - ours had a tiny space you could just about stand on but that was all. In fairness, their website clarifies this where as booking.com did not. We asked to change room to one with a balcony and were moved a few days into our stay.
Apart from these initial issues the room was of decent size with comfortable bed and decent shower, however I have to agree with others regrading cleanliness. It appears to be more of a tidy and superficial clean than what most hotels perform. Underneath the bed was very dirty, there was a large obvious makeup mark on the bathroom door that easily cleaned off that they'd ignored. For a hotel this new the condition wasn't great. These are relatively minor issues but detract from the overall experience.
We found the location to be great, it's not particularly close to ocean drive if that's where you plan to spend most of your time it's most likely not ideal.
