Funky boutique beachfront hotel in the heart of South Beach with fun pool parties. Rooms are small but stylish, and you’ll find a lot of cool Anime pop art on their walls. Stay here if you're looking for a party hotel.Recommended for:Trendsters

**FUNKY ART DECO HOTEL WITH MOST MEMORABLE POOL PARTIES**
Our first WMC pool party was here.
Easy-going staff with friendly attitudes.
Loved the Art Deco details of the lobby. The pool was also eye-catching with the poolside black and white striped cabanas, plastic beach balls, and overhead palm trees. So Miami chic.
Funky Japanese anime artwork on patio/balcony walls were a nice city touch.
We opted for bottle service which for $150 included a bottle, daybed, table, and new wild friends.
Best pool party scene we've experienced in SoBe.

We stayed at The National for two nights last September. The location is great, right on the beach and close to Ocean Drive and shopping on Lincoln Road. Hotel staff is very friendly but, and this is a great but, the hotel is undergoing heavy renovations it seems and from the outside it looks like a ruin for now. View from the room was ongoing construction right in front of the window with some ocean in the distance. The room was a bit small and outdated but at least the bed was comfortable. The hotel grounds and pool were very nice but the DJ's music by the bar was quite loud & annoying. Too bad as the pool area is quite nice to relax, at least it is easy to escape to the beach from this location. This should be a nice place once the renovations are done but in the meantime this is definitely not worth 4 stars or the money that we paid for it (and we had a good deal)!

I booked my stay at The National through Priceline.com blindly (via the name your own price tool), and was very happy with the result.
The hotel is walking distance from the downtown area, has a gorgeous private beach, beautiful swimming pool and super friendly staff. It does have a little bit of a 'run down' feel (akin to a faded picture), but not in an off-putting way. The room was spacious and clean with a decent view. I only ate lunch there an had a cocktail, but I would say in general eat/drink elsewhere. The food was good but very overpriced, and the cocktail was not good at all.
As I was getting ready to leave, I asked one of the staff members if there was a place nearby to buy good rum. He then went out of his way to take me across the street to pick out a bottle from the liquor store around the corner. Awesome.
All in all, The National is definitely worth checking out.
