    It is a great hotel, the only downside of it is that it isn't on the beach.

    Not a beach front hotel.

    It is close to the beach. Staff was very friendly. The room was spacious. Kitchenette. Very fancy, original design if you are into it.

    Bathroom was relatively small. No dryer in the room (considering it is a beach hotel). Worst of all, it was very noisy. Our room was separated from the adjacent with a thin door, you could hear anything happening there.

    Superb

    The spacious rooms, the view, the cleanliness. Spotless beds and floors.

    The manager still needs training. We tried to contact him twice but was too busy to appear. A shame.

    The introductory price to this new hotel was attractive, not sure that I would ever pay the price they are now asking. Yes they would like to consider themselves a luxory "boutique hotel", its nice now as it is brand new. Quiet and very clean comfortable pool area, great viewing area for the intercoastal. Upscale area.

    Somewhat strange location tucked under the bridge, stayed 5 nights and most days, my room was not made up until late afternoon. Better signage would make hotel easier to find. A ways a way from any restaurants. (not really in walking distance.) Terrible choice of TV channels, very limited news.

    The hotel was in soft oppening, the staf need to be more polite. The room I stayed is as big as an appartament, but the bathroom is small, like the old french hotels in Paris. The front door of the hotel need to be changed, it does not represent the luxury of the hotel.

    It is located in Bal Harbour - good for shopping and still close to Miami Beach. Free parking & free internet. Nice large rooms. Modern design but rather bland. It is a 3 story block that previously were condo's but were transformed into hotel rooms. Location on the main A1A road but good window insulation filters out street noise. You can walk (big plus in the US !) to the Shops at Bal Harbour. The beach is close and can be reached by foot (5 mins).

    Paper thin walls make you want to join in your neighbors conversations. It is badly (read, not) sound insulated at all. In addition, the floors are tiled and anyone walking above you is well heard. Everything is loud. If you are sensitive to sounds, than avoid this hotel. It is new and the staff are 'learning on the job'; meaning that check in and check out takes a lot of time. There is nothing in the direct vicinity so you need a car for everything.

    The staff at front desk is excellent. Especially the manager!! Very clean place, always smelling good !. very comfortable rooms. The swimming pool was spotless. So were the surrounding areas. I will definitely come back!

    The only thing I would complain is they charge you for parking ( only $ 10 a day) I think it shold be included within the room fee. But I guess it's a miami thing to charge for that.

    Great staff, everyone was friendly and helpful from the maid to the front desk! In room snacks though meager were priced reasonably.

    Three items of complaint for improvement: 1) A/C units in room are WAY TOO LOUD! I will not stay here again because on that one reason. Too bad because I loved the location and the price was great, but these in wall low cost units have a deafening decibel level like a truck rumbling all night as it turns off and on every 10 minutes. Even when trying to listen to the TV I had to turn the volume from #17 all the way up to #27 in order to hear it when the A/C kicked in. Im sure it is far too late now, but I would highly recommend that given there is no possibility of installing central air now, that they replace these noisy Sanyo units with a quiter unit as they go bad. Of all the hotels I've stayed in, this was the loudest units that I have ever experienced. I complained but was told that the hotel was booked full, and the only units that had Central air are the suites. 2) The pipe the lobby music through the ENTIRE hotel on all floors. The music is very loud and plays ALL NIGHT! Our room was at least 25 feet from one of the speakers and I could hear it clearly in our room. If it were not for the A/C kicking in every 10 minutes covering up the music, I would have been very annoyed. Management needs to turn off the music in the evening, at least in the hallways. There is NO point to play music on the floors, especially when all rooms have music and TV to be entertained. 3) There are no ice machines in the hotel. To get ice you have to go down to the lobby and get cresent shaped ice from a home style refrigerator next to the front desk. You almost feel uncomfortable using a styrofoam coffee cup they provide to coax out the last remaining ice cubes from the dispenser trying carefully not to drop a cube on the floor in front of front desk staff, less you have to chase it around on the floor so not to leave it for a sleepy guest to step on. In a hotel this size, you can imagine there is NOT a lot of ice cubes left by 9:00pm.

    Excellent location with easy access. The Zen Patio was great. Staff was very responsive.

    The Quarzo lacks many typical amenities, such as vending machines, ice machines, etc. Although the rooms were spacious, there was very little closet space and generally a poor use of space in the room. There appears to be "hole" in Security procedures, as the staff opened up our room at the request of another confused resident.
