Rum is the name of the game at this stylish throwback lounge.. In Short Tucked inside the swanky The Tides boutique hotel, this classy watering hole's claim to fame is its wide rum list. Yes, rum list. Who needs a sommelier when you can have a rummelier walk you through 30 different types of rum from all over the world? The décor is ritzy chophouse charm, with cozy crimson and tan leather chairs surrounding small golden tables. If you're hungry, the bar has a menu that showcases its libation of choice with items like a rum-glazed halibut and a veal chop with a side of rum-truffled potatoes. Dessert? Save room for a rum-spiked crème brulee saddled with a scoop of rum raisin ice cream.
Do not recommenD!.
I booked my trip to the Tides way back in early January! I was quoted almost $600 a night (excluding tax), I didn?t mind paying this rate if it meant I was staying in a luxurious hotel!
However, not all went as planned! We where told the week before we arrived that the hotel was under reconstruction, there was no swimming pool, no lobby and the restaurant only served food outside on the front stairs! Already I was annoyed!
We arrived as planned on the 19th March to a noisy hotel! When I arrived in the room it was full of old white furniture which had cigarette burns in it! While we were looking outside our ocean view suite work man appeared at our window! Luckily I wasn?t getting undressed!
The elevator was also broke so we had to walk up 3 flights of dirty stairs!
When we arrived back to the hotel on the first night there was a note on our door telling us there would be no water from 12-4! I?ve never heard of a hotel doing this in my life! And to make matters worse the day it was cut off I had no hot water until half past 7, which made me late for a previous appointment I had that night!
We checked out after two days! Instead we had a fantastic stay at the Lowes hotel! The Tides almost ruined my holiday; luckily I am the type of person who makes the best of situations! This information should have been shared with me when I booked in January! I agreed to pay those rates because I thought I was getting the facilities to go with it!
Crown jewel of the Kor Hotel Group chain, this art-deco gem is redefining luxury in South Beach.. The Scene Built in 1936, this grand Art-Deco hotel has been restored to its original glory, and the 121 rooms have been converted into 45 luxurious guest rooms and suites. The real surprise, however, is the hotel's genuinely friendly staff, a feature lacking in most luxury hotels.
The Details All the spacious units boast an ocean view and a telescope for celebrity stargazing. All the rooms are decorated in elegant sandy tones, and each comes equipped with three phones (one portable), a stereo, a concealed security safe and other cushy perks. The ninth floor accommodations are actually two interconnecting suites, perfect for friends vacationing together, with a private balcony and marble bath. The hotel is just across the street from the beach, which can be seen from any of the rooms' double-paned windows.
