  •   rtraino Aside from Ace hotel, which I adore, I always feel like Broadway between 32nd street and 25th street is a bit like Paterson, NJ - circa 1973. 4y
  •   abresler @rtraino I totally agree 4y
  •   faulksone This is one of NY's most interesting buildings. 4y

  •   brogersre That was it - I was living in Paris at the time and had heard great things about it. But think the Royalton on W 44 was the starter of the whole boutique hotel scene. Loved their champagne bar! 4y

The renovation was a disaster of all disasters featuring death, firing of contractors and massive cost overruns. When all was said and done came out nice and still is! 5y

Every detail is accounted for, including artful use of 20 varieties of stone and glass. Despite the addition of countless unnecessary residential additions to Miami now being firesold, demand and secondary pricing has remained strong due to the superior quality of this beauty. Like nearly all projects from New York developer Millennium Partners and any hotel bearing the proud flag of the classy hotel chain created by my favorite Canadian other than Justin Bieber (Izzy Sharpe for those that care) ; this building is there prototype for 21st century mixed use development magic. Go visit of you are in Miami and if you can splurge, stay or buy here! 5y
