Dining & lounges located in the hotel:
• World-famous Morimoto
"Chef Masaharu Morimoto - millions know him as the star of Iron Chef and Iron Chef America - has garnered critical and popular acclaim for his inventive integration of Western and Japanese ingredients. His signature culinary artistry tempts palates around the world and positions him as one of today's foremost chefs.
Creative flavors spice up the menu at Morimoto South Beach. Enhancing your culinary experience are Morimoto Beer, Shochu, Morimoto Sake and specialty cocktails."
• The Bistro
"Reminiscent of 1950's European coffee houses, French patisseries and Italian cafes, The Bistro features a Coffee Bar that offers La Colombe coffees. You will also enjoy fresh pressed juices and fruit smoothies, as well as house-made baked goods, gelato, sandwiches, salads, and desserts. From the traditional café tables, you can savor the lush ambiance of historic Collins Avenue and the iconic porte cochere, created by renowned architect Morris Lapidus."
• The Drawing Room
"Some drink-makers call themselves bar chefs, some mixologists. Albert Trummer thinks of himself an apothéker. He crafts his cocktails with fresh, local ingredients, herbs and botanicals to create unique cocktails that are nothing like anything you've tried before. Trummer borrows techniques from the kitchen and apothecary to stir up masterpieces that blur the line between chemistry and art.
In the "fiercely competitive world of high-end cocktail shaking" by Time Out New York, Trummer is dubbed "the man to beat." (email hidden) and watch Trummer at play or select your elixir of the day from a stainless-steel cocktail cart wheeled through the room."
• Oasis Grill
"Meet us at the water's edge to enjoy the simple goodness of spectacular food. The refreshing and relaxed spirit of the Mediterranean is infused in everything from the ambiance to the incredibly fresh fish, seafood and produce dishes. Experience the bold flavors and foods of the Mediterranean at this casual beachfront grill with glowing fire pits and evening entertainment."

Interaction with Guests
I will personally communicate with you throughout regarding your reservation.
Guests may need to leave a credit card imprint for incidentals (room service, additional maid visits, spa treatments) as you would any hotel stay, but the room is pre-paid through Airbnb.
Frank's place was perfect for a trip to South Beach. The balcony and view are amazing and the room was spotless. Outside of room service, you get everything you would staying at the hotel for less (and you can't beat the view - several of my friends stayed in the hotel at the same time and most were on the lower floors with no balcony).
Frank was friendly and responsive. I wouldn't hesitate to book this again for future trips to Miami.
Unbelievable space; fantastic view of the ocean and central to all South Beach activities. Space was nicely decorated. Frank was extremely responsive and helpful. We'd rent from him again in a heartbeat and will rebook the same space on our next visit to South Beach!
This was an excellent unit for a great beach weekend in Miami. Frank is both thorough and expedient in his communication. The unit is very nicely decorated, and you cannot beat the location. The unrestricted view of the beach, however, is the real selling point. Don't pass up this unit!
Location is everything. This is the best of South Beach and a great location in the hotel. This is a shared condo and hotel. That means you get all the services and amenities. You're not giving up anything. The only down side is that it's small and I'd have preferred to have a king size bed rather than two beds. This place is too cramped to share with other people or kids.
Frank's property is spectacular. Do not hesitate in making the decision to book it or it might get snatched up! The balcony alone makes the property worth twice as much per night. Excellent decor. The pool and beach access was wonderful. We had an incredibly relaxing time and will certainly book again in the near future.
Frank was also great at communicating with us and was very responsive. He let us check in and check out a little early to accommodate our flight schedule.
Frank's residence was amazing. The room is very nice and has a spectacular view. The check-in and check-out process was very convenient and being at The Shelborne was great. We loved being right on the beach and also having access to a great pool. We were eating out for the most part so the microwave and mini-fridge with complimentary water were all we needed. The only issue we had was noise from construction going on next door but Frank was extremely helpful in trying to figure out how to resolve the issue. It didn't last long at all. A great place to stay while in Miami!
About the Host, Frank
Hey Everyone! Glad to be on here!
A little bit about myself: I'm a Colombian-American, self-professed techie from Miami, who loves playing (read: getting frustrated with) tennis, listening and singing along to gypsy jazz and old tangos, and watching advanced movie screenings. I went to school in NYC (SIPA) and now live mostly in New York, where I work in consulting and enjoy eating out or cooking in with my beautiful girlfriend whenever possible.
I enjoy doing a little bit of everything, but as it relates to this site, I love to travel. As a host, if I can make it easier for other like-minded souls (and rent out my place easily :)), then I'm all for it! :) I look forward to meeting others here and wherever my travels take me.
