A renovation in 2014 breathed new life into this 1930s-era Art Deco jewel in the South Beach historic district, known in its past life as the Primrose Hotel and The Hotel Nash. The 57 whitewashed guest rooms feature modern touches like cube-shaped hollow end tables; curvy, low-backed chairs; and round lampshades in glittering gold. Little luxuries include walk-in rain showers, marble-and-tile bathrooms, and blackout drapes that you’ll appreciate after partying till the sun starts to lighten the Atlantic skies. Though just a block from the ocean, you might not venture beyond the intimate courtyard, where lush vegetation surrounds three stone-lined spa pools. Need some shade? Lounge al fresco on the hotel’s airy front patio for world-class people watching, South Beach-style.
In the Area
You’re in the heart of the Art Deco district, within walking distance of the pedestrian-only Lincoln Road Mall, a hub for shopping and dining hotspots. Try Quattro Gastronomia Italiana for rustic northern Italian-focused cuisine, Nexxt Cafe for diner-style fare in a buzy outdoor space, or target=”_blank”>Shake Shack for indulgent burgers and custards from the popular NYC transplant. By night, the South Beach scene beckons at celeb-frequented nightclubs like STORY and SET. For a different sort of evening out, try the nearby Miami City Ballet or New World Symphony.
How to Get There
Hotel was decent. Prime location a block away from the strip so very convenient! Rooms very outdated bathroom tile kind of gross deffintely wouldn’t recommend walking barefoot. Tub in bathroom also quite dirty. Rooms are small for pricing, and just outdated. If you’re looking for something decent but prime for location this will work for you. Front desk service and staff are great!
We stayed in room 401 which was a large king terrace room. It was a great size with a fantastic outside terrace which went round three sides of the room, totalling two small tables, four sun loungers and an umbrella.
The hotel is in a great location with super friendly staff. Room was serviced every day with no skimping on the toiletries, room always seemed to be done with 2 hours of putting the sign on usually within the hour. Would definitely stay again if I had the same room or similar.
Perfectly clean and super friendly staff. I slept great, nice central location yet away from the noise of ocean drive yet within walking distance to everything. BIG room. I didn't go to pool or beach but it looked very refreshing.
If you're looking for an inexpensive hotel , this is definitely the hotel to stay at. Stayed here with
Fiancé for five days and this hotel definitely has it's pros AND cons.
Pros - this hotel is a block away from
All the action , which I thought was great , especially for the price you're paying . The people at the front desk are always welcoming you during the day , which I think is always a good thing . Checking in and out is as easy as 1-2-3. They provide you with towels for the beach which is good . The rooms aren't that bad ( will in go into detail about that later ), they're pretty decent . I mean , I don't see the point in paying 2,500 dollars for a hotel when you're barely going to be in the hotel . The hotel does have 3 pools which is good especially if you want to do your own thing & don't want to be surrounded by other people while you're having fun with your family and/or friends . They don't have a restaurant or cafe here but they do have 24/7 coffee , tea and water for the people that's staying there & they provide little mini cute muffins in the morning .
Cons- the elevator is not that good at the hotel , pretty old but it's fine . Majority of the outlets in my hotel room didn't work , so my fiancé and I had to share the same charger everyday. We barely got room service ( we had to consistently call and ask for room service which I thought was already a given since that's what you're paying for . Also after finally getting room service , they never gave us towels and/or wash cloths. Imagine having to call everyday about the same thingggg! On top of that , they don't wash your bed sheets or pillow cases . So , if you plan on staying here , make sure you check your bed & towels to make sure they're fresh and clean. Unfortunately for my stay , my sheets were torn , had red wine stains on them & make up on the pillow cases.
At first glance it's not too bad like all hotels in this area aged. The staff were super friendly and even went out to get me some ear plugs. Room 219 overlook the street and it's like sleeping in the middle of a nightclub boom boom. Our room was tended to once in 5 days had to ask for our garbage to be emptied half way through our stay
