I have a traveling job that lands me in a different hotel every night- and of all the places I stayed, this remains my favorite. Every time I visit the south coast I stay here. It's also a good choice for those wanting to see Miami and feel safe at night! Besides being half an hour from downtown Miami and South Beach, downtown Hollywood, situated on every side of the quaint hotel, is darling! They have an ecclectic mix of nightlife- salsa, jazz, irish pub, and several shops and salons where you can pick up a cuban coffee (not for the faint of heart) and go antiquing. All within easy walking distance. And by easy I mean two blocks or less. Even the rooms had a little flair- supersoft blankets and decorative tiling, that you usually can't find at that price.
Pros: Nicely decorated, great nightlife, quiet in rooms, hot breakfast
Cons: very punctual about checkout, so be ready for a lot of calls at 10:45
