Fodor's Review

This seven-story, oft-photographed 1937 archetypal art deco building on Ocean Drive offers a wide range of somewhat dated, Old Florida–style rooms complete with wicker chairs and black-and-white photos of old beach scenes. The Henry Hohauser hotel has some of the beach's best preserved geometrically-patterend terrazzo floors. The so-called "Blue Jewel" also boasts a sculpture garden and a compact pool, the setting of much parading about in swimsuits. There's a roof deck

for sunning, where people also gather to watch movies on Thursday night (with free popcorn and soda) and for yoga on Saturday.

Charming hotel across from beach

Good value hotel on Ocean Drive, right across from the beach. Not as glamorous as some, but comfortable and right in the middle of the action. The restaurants associated with the hotel are very good. There is also a nice pool area, a rarity on South Beach. Plenty of sightseeing wihin walking distance.
