Booked a day pass for $240. Location is great; a walk away from the beach, food, clubs and shopping. Front desk was helpful initially. Issues came about when we were placed in a dirty, mildew-y room. The bedding was wet and very dirty with stains. The toilet did not flush. When these concerns were brought up, a refund or discount were not options available to us. We were instead moved to another room, which while less mildew-y, the bedding was also damp and had small staining. The toilet did flush in this room. Additionally, we were moved to a room that was nearest the club that was playing loud music. Fortunately, we only needed a room to bridge the gap between our departure time and next room at the Hilton, but I do wish we were able to be comfortable to nap as we had planned after our long trip.

Of course the location of this hotel is spectacular, but the property is incredible. The building is well maintained, my room was excellent. Super clean. Exceptional tile, shower, fixtures, everything. I mean spotless. Our view of the strip was great, the pool is very fun. Beach towels, bikes, water, breakfast, all generously included. What really made this my new absolute "must-go-to" for visiting South Beach was the staff. Everyone was super focused on making our stay the best. At the very top of that list is Lily. Every time we walked by she greeted us like a friend and made sure that any question we had, any need, was taken care of in such a wonderful manner. I travel quite a bit and having someone with her attitude and competence at a front desk is very rare. Thank Breakwater, and thank you Lily!! We'll be back! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! PS, the artwork is on point!
