Standard Miami: First Reviews Trickle In
Last month we visited the Standard Miami and gave you our pre-opening thoughts. Now that the Standard is handing out key cards to the paying public and travel media types, we figured it was time to let you in on the early word.
From a recent Standard Miami Guest:
Just got back and was in awe of the property. As a regular visitor to South Beach, I wanted to experience a different vibe. If you are looking for pure bliss,please go. They are still working out a few kinks. A dinner menu is still in the works.
From the Miami Herald:
The Standard retains the old glossy white terrazzo floors and Mod Morris Lapidus architecture. The motelish guest rooms out back (decent-sized rooms start at $195) feature blonde woods, picnic baskets doubling as nightstands, cotton cozies covering wall-mounted flatscreen TVs and organic options in the mini bar (not to worry, there are still Oreos and M&Ms.) Outside some doors are Army cots and bathtubs, so that you can soak while taking in the breeze, not to mention your neighbor's soaking, since he or she is separated only by a thin white curtain.
We also learned that the Standard's pool is chlorine-free--so your hair doesn't turn green, but what about maintenance?
Standard guests--let us know what you think of the place will ya? Either comment below or send us an email.
