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
First impression was super and last too!!! Impecable, clean, deliciously well decorated, all brand new, with that good fresh zen smell everywhere. Michele & Math an amazing team. They treat us as queens!!!! Everything absolutly perfect! I recommended 200%.
We had such a great experience with this hotel. When we arrived we got an amazing big room with a huge terrace and the staff was very helpful especially the lady at the reception. I would like to highly recommend this place. The hotel is a typical art deco building so if you are a tourist you can see and enjoy the local architecture.
If you are looking for the place where you can relax by the pool and don't be bothered by 100people around, this is the right choice :).
On the surface, it appears to be a passable budget hotel with a few nice touches, as promised on the website. However, better inspection reveals shortcuts and neglect. The water went out during our stay, which was incredibly inconvenient and annoying. The way the staff handled it compounded the situation, although a manager we later spoke with handled it appropriately and gave us a significant late check-out.
Would I come back? Not likely, I would spend a bit more for a better stay elsewhere.
We spent 4 nights here. First impression was good staff friendly and helpful. Avoid room 219 over the lobby unless you like to sleep in the middle of a nightclub because the constant boom boom keeps you awake. Our room was tended to once in 5 days and had to ask for our garbage to be emptied. They came promptly to fix the toilet that would not flush and front desk staff got me some ear plugs.
not recommended AT ALL.
stay away !! they are highly unfriendly people at the reception especially the non-young male staff.
the day of my departure I asked for a 2-hour late check out because I had some important things to finish in Miami before leaving.
2 hours more COSTED ME 153 dollar like the price about 1 night (24 hours ) and since my card had exceeded the sight limit paid the foreseen night I was prevented from entering the room to pack when I was missing the plane. be very careful with this staff. It is very incorrect and unreliable.
