My wife and me are from West Palm Beach and had our honeymoon 11 yrs ago, we stayed in the Mayfair back than and decided for our 11th anniversary to stay in South Beach since we have never visited.
The elevator there is probably the oldest, a metal door, new or old I don't know but when you get inside it has the old folding metal gate that slams awful hard before the door shuts, and fits 2 people comfortably; my wife never saw an elevator so old. Just for the record we were not drinking when these events occurred. After getting out of the elevator and walking, I believe on the 2nd floor, we walked to the last room on the left, we opened the door after using our card to get in.
