Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Proximity to shops, convenience stores, and restaurants
  • Short walk to the beach
  • Fresh interior spaces and modern amenities
  • Flat-screen TVs

Cons

Bottom Line

This 48-room concept hotel caters mostly to a younger, 20- and 30-something crowd, offering showy, statement-making decor, such as mannequin lamps, flashy, gold couches, and giant fashion images on walls and doors. The effect feels hip and trendy to many, but some of the design touches seem cheaply done. Rooms are small, bathrooms are tiny (though spotless), and the hotel lacks common amenities -- a gym is available across the street, but guests still have to pay a discounted fee. Overall, though, the interior remodeling of the historic building -- which dates to 1939 -- looks fresh and modern. And the hotel's location can't be beat though: It's a short walk to the beach, stores, and restaurants.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

In the heart of South Beach, a few blocks from the sand

In the heart of South Beach, Fashionhaus Hotel offers guests proximity to multiple restaurants, convenience stores, and bars – while also being just a few blocks from the beach. For travelers who want a prime South Beach location, it's tough to get much better than this, especially at this price range.

Neon-lit South Beach (or "SoBe") might be the sexiest beach town in America, with modeling agencies flanking a broad topless beach. Chic clubs with especially discerning bouncers draw the fashion-industry elite, the occasional celebrity, and plenty of 20-somethings ready to party. Every local seems to be either a model, DJ, publicist, broker, or homeless eccentric. It's not all glitz -- cheap Cuban sandwich joints, fishbowl-size discount margaritas, and Bud Light-slinging dive bars peacefully coexist with the posh hotel lounges and famed fusion restaurants.

  • 20-minute drive to Miami International Airport
  • 2- to 5-minute walk to various restaurants and bars
  • 5-minute walk to the beach
  • 15-minute walk to the 17.5-acre South Pointe Park, which features scenic paths
  • 5-minute drive to Flamingo Park and Pool
