Fodor's Review

Fashion designer Todd Oldham preserved the Art Deco roots of The Hotel, which inhabits the historic Tiffany building on Collins Avenue, and has expanded the property with 20 new deluxe oceanfront rooms and suites along fabulous Ocean Drive. The name spelled vertically in eye-popping neon on the venue’s iconic aluminum spire—Tiffany—bears evidence of the hotel’s earlier incarnation. When the L. Murray Dixon–designed Tiffany Hotel was erected in 1939, neon was

still a novelty. Its use, coupled with the spire’s rocket-like shape, combined to create a futuristic look influenced by the sci-fi themes then pervasive in popular culture. Nowadays, everything in this quirky, romantic boutique hotel, from the decor of the restaurant Wish, to the tie-dye bathrobes hanging in the small but cute bathrooms, is colorful and eclectic. Somehow the aesthetic of soft browns and whites works, thanks to the knowing eye of megadesigner Oldham. Add soft lighting and two-person bathtubs, and you have all the makings of a romantic retreat. The hotel's most exquisite treat is a rooftop bar, a low-key hangout where locals and hotel guests lounge under the neon light of the Tiffany sign Thursday–Saturday nights.

The Hotel the worst

paying in the $200 range for a property without a working elevator is wrong in all kinds of ways, as they seem to like the fact they render no services at all. Save your trouble, if you do try to recover sleep from the street noise that kept you up all night, housekeeping will be sure to wake you from that nap. Yuk.
