Bottom Line

What we loved

  • Great location on Miami Beach with direct access to the beach.
  • Booked through Hyatt Privé which came with roundtrip transportation from Miami airport. They picked us up from the Hyatt Centric Brickell & dropped us off at Miami airport.
  • Great staff: from check-in to bartender and restaurant staff, everyone we encountered were nice & professional.
  • Hotel has a Museum of Graffiti collection, with an available audio tour, which was nice during a rainy day at the hotel.
  • Room decor, definitely beachy vibes with carpet & furniture. Outdoor furniture was bright yellow & blue, which simulated the sun & ocean.
  • Oceanfront views were show stopper. Spent most of the time on the balcony on the lounge chairs.
  • Two pools (albeit next to each other), one for families & one for adults.

What we did not like

  • Ambersweet restaurant was closed during our Monday to Wednesday stay. All food ordered was taken to-go.
  • Hotel charged 20% service fee on every order. This 20% charge was not taken off for Globalist breakfast orders.
  • At 350 square feet, the room & bathroom was small. I intentionally booked the King Deluxe to have a sofa & the "upgraded" room did not have a sofa.
  • Wished the hotel had a more authentic Miami menu, including Peruvian, Cuban or Venezuelan food.

Verdict

Booked a King Deluxe for $239 (+ taxes & fees) per night & was upgraded to an Oceanfront with Lounge Deck. I booked this hotel specifically to be close to the beach, to lounge in the Miami sunshine & this hotel was perfect for that type of trip.

After living & working in South Florida for almost 10 years, I have come to tolerate Miami's lackluster customer service & premium proximity prices. I was surprised as the staff was pleasant and the hotel felt well-maintained; I would stay here again.
