About this Hotel

Price From $119

'Hood In the heart of South Beach. Club-hoppers are within stumbling distance of Ocean Drive, and celeb watchers are within strolling distance of the anything-goes café scene on Lincoln Road.

The Vibe It feels like walking into a secret garden. A narrow, leafy courtyard encloses this small, onetime apartment building. The staff can arrange for your VIP entry to a few semi-exclusive clubs.

Rooms All 17 studios and one-bedroom apartments have kitchens, hardwood floors, curved couches, and walls painted in bright, sunny colors. A recent renovation added hardwood floors and platform beds.

Plus A surprisingly quiet atmosphere, given the neighborhood's party-all-night reputation. Also: a block from the beach.

Minus No pool.

Free Wi-Fi? Yes.

Credit Cards Accepted AmEx, MC, Visa.

Details Doubles from $119.
