An upscale hostel that isn't an Ace Hotel? Whatever could it be! Right now, the Indian Creek Hotel already looks and sounds like a fun hipster hotel (if in desperate need of some upgrades.) We especially like their honesty on their website:
Our service is friendly and nice. We do not have fancy phones or room service, but we do care and our staff hustles. For quick snacks we have a very cool, analog snack machine on premises.
The hotel also promises guests some of the best cocktails in Miami. And even though the Sydell Group plans on turning the place into a hostel, right now it looks like every one of the rooms has its own bathroom.
But if this recent "review" on TripAdvisor is to be believed, the Indian Creek Hotel will be changing drastically:
The new owners plan to pack 4 to 6 people to a room and have noisy programs and bars and restaurants throughout the property. This historic gem of comfort, beauty, and calm and will be no more. We have been regulars and just returned from a lovely stay at the hotel (It has not changed yet, but workmen are starting to come around.) that, sadly, will be our last.
That is sad. But we can't help but wonder again, if it's not going to be an Ace Hotel, what will it be? If you got some scoop, tip us off!
