Surfcomber, South Beach

I love the fact that each Kimpton Hotel is unique, and the Surfcomber did not disappoint.

Everywhere you turned in the lobby, was another fun seating area that was just begging for a photoshoot.

The rooms were super small, but expected for a retro hotel and no different from other hotels on the South Beach strip.

The view from the room was pretty fabulous too. Literally within minutes of taking this photo, this sky turned black and opened up in a torrential downpour.

What made this stay so fun, was the multiple cows and sheep grazing the urban concrete that the grounds had to offer.

The designer in me, loved the symmetry and the perspective that the tiles, yellow chairs and planters gave around the grounds as well.

Even though they didn’t have a private beach, it was just out the back gate and across the walking path.  It was raining by this time on our stay, but storms always make for more dramatic photos anyways!

We had to get up early to make a flight back to Toronto, but we got to watch a wonderful sunrise from our balcony.

Despite the beautiful grounds, the experience wasn’t all that it seemed in the photos.

There was a problem with our reservation, that was handled badly at registration, and definitely took away from the expected experience.

The guests in the room next to us, decided to have an all night party that meant we received zero sleep due to not only the music, but their door opening and slamming shut all night long.

We will continue visiting Kimpton Hotels, but we will definitely be exploring different hotels in South Beach on our hunt for more unique experiences.
