We have stayed in a number of luxurious resorts and spas in Miami and these hotels have always exceeded our expectations. So when it was time to check out other places to stay, we have already elevated our standards. Question now is, did The Hall made it to one of our favorites?
The Hall is a boutique hotel in South Beach Miami or SoBe, which is a 1940’s Art Deco transformed into this beautiful bohemian – inspired property perfect for artsy tourists, like us! It is strategically located just one block from the ocean, few steps away from the famous shopping/ dining district, Lincoln Road and, the Ocean Drive. If you want accessibility, then this could the perfect choice. Almost everything is minutes away.
We all know Miami can get pretty hot! And that sometimes erases the smile from our faces. However, the people from The Hall seems not to feel the heat of the sun as they always greet you with the largest smiles on their faces. Indeed, it brightened up our stay. Their kindness is pretty much consistent from the day they gave us our welcome cocktails, to the day we checked out. I really commend the services the staff has given us. Thumbs up!
All rooms will remind you of the Caribbean given the colors of the walls. And of course, the beach – inspired art pieces inside the rooms will constantly remind you to hit the beach instantly. But what I really like is their hardwood floors which reminds us of the old and simple architecture back then. It’s a mixture of classic and contemporary design. I would like to think it matches our personality, don’t you think? You can choose from the Deluxe King, Premier Queen, Pool View King, Deluxe Queen and Pool View Suite. Here’s what to expect from each room.
- Deluxe King – 300 – 475 square feet with one King bed
- Deluxe Queen – 300 – 475 square feet with two Queen beds
- Premier Queen/Queen – 450 – 515 square feet with two Queen beds
- Pool View Suite – 515 square feet with one King bed and living area, private balcony with pool view (in higher floors)
- Pool View King – 350 square feet with one King bed, private balcony with pool view (in higher floors)
Regardless of which type you choose, you’d get the following: Luxe linens, 42 – inch HD TV, Luxurious toiletries, Beach bag, Soundfreaq Bluetooth speaker, Safe and WiFi. You can find more information about the property on their official website.
Ah, my favorite part.
