Opened in July 2014, the Hotel Vintro South Beach is housed in an Art Deco building on Park Avenue and has a fresh, artistic, urban look, from the spray-painted rooftop mural to the bright and bold artworks in the 50 rooms and suites. High-end amenities include Bluetooth clock radios and Illy coffee machines, while the peekaboo bathrooms feature rainfall showerheads and all-natural products; they up the sexy factor by being visible from the rest of the room. The rooftop courtyard doubles as a playground, with loungers, hammocks, a plunge pool and a ping-pong table. For additional ways to kick back, chairs and umbrellas are available at the beach (a five-minute walk from the property), or you can relax in the hotel’s spa-style treatment rooms. The Kitchen South Beach blends Latin and Mediterranean flavors in dishes such as caramelized sea scallops with corn salsa, or spicy lamb meatballs with goat cheese and pickles; dine inside in an elegant setting under the lofty 30-foot ceiling or on the terrace overlooking Collins Canal.
In the Area
Neighboring the Vintro is the Bass Museum of Art and Miami City Ballet; for additional exploration, bicycle rentals and a Mercedes van shuttle service are included in the resort fee. If you’re interested in getting out on the water, charter an eight-passenger speedboat from the hotel directly, or rent equipment for water sports at local operators ranging from jet skis to paddleboards. Other attractions nearby include the Miami Beach Botanical Gardens, the New World Symphony and the shopper’s paradise, Lincoln Road Mall. Miami’s racy nightlife scene is constantly evolving, but visitors can check out SET (on Lincoln Road) or Story nightclub for bottle service and dancing.
How to Get There
Worse Hotel I have ever stayed in my entire life, we were meant to be in another hotel however this was not ready & placed us in this dump. No key cards for 3 days having to wait for someone to open the room each time whilst the people in reception are ready from playing with their mobile. Receptions at check in was room and was with socks no shoes on it felt like walking into a camping site!we asked for bottle water was told to go and get it from the gas station after 18 hours of travelling. The room was disgusting to say the least you can see on pics. Construction work noisy ,we found stained towels, pillow cases and hairs in the sheets. After i do not know how many complains they offered us a small refund and the last 2 days to move to another hotel of theirs which to be honest we didn't bother as did not think they got it right there anyways. When you are travelling so many hours and have to wake up for a conference the following day is the last thing one would need! It is nothing like the pictures online, it's more like a haunted hotel which stinks and is dirty.

In my entire stay i never got room keys (always the same excuse that the system was down) giving no privacy and always having to wait at least 15 min for the staff everytime i want to access my room!
the check in after my very long trip was super late my room was ready (4:35pm) with poor excuses from the staff that just keep on saying that they only have one maid!
when i contact the front desk with my concerns he offer a discount that was never reflected on my credit card! so i was charge full price!
then i contact the vintro custumer service and more excuses just saying thank you for the stay!
Upon arrival, I was pleasantly surprised by how close this little art deco building was to South Beach,Collins Ave.,and Washington Ave. You're tucked right behind The Miami City Ballet Company and Collins Park. There's a gas station and a Walgreen's around the corner for those that are practical. The staff was friendly and helpful.There are about 8 or so parking spots on the street. The website mentions that parking is available for $30/day, but this is really through one of the city lots, garages, or one of these 8 spots and it will cost about $30/day if not more to park in Miami.
Hotel amenities/services are embellished in some of the pictures. The room was contemporary with cool art and pops of color. The bar and the restaurant was completely closed during my visit. Very disappointing. There's no linen on tables, fine dishes, coffee or cocktails. There's none of that right now, but you can tell they're making upgrades to those areas.
I didn't see a pool table and the pingpong table is terrible. I didn't have a coffee maker or a working blow dryer or water. Maybe you have to upgrade for those items. There were 2 fridges in the room, but only 1 of them kept anything cold. There are several outdoor spaces. I would recommend the rooftop lounge area...the back deck area is really in need of some repairs. The pool is cute, but not comfortable for more than 2 people.
Again, the staff was awesome and we had a great time despite some of these missteps.Here's hoping for improvement!
