We stayed at this quaint European style hotel for a week and it was calming, lovely, immaculate, on the beach and accessible to everything. You can walk across the street to Bal Harbor Shops for great dining and "expensive" shopping or you can rent a car be anywhere fairly quickly. Easy access to and from airport. Be sure to visit...

I've reviewed this hotel on a couple of occasions...and now, we...my wife and I...were back again. I suppose that returning again and again as we do is a good review in and of itself. It remains a quiet, unpretentious place that we find nice and comfortable. Our room was spacious and both the room and the bathroom were immaculate. I... More

My husband & I stayed here for the convenience, however, now we simply love this grand hotel!! The restaurant, the bar, the service...hands down best on the beach!! We have stayed in September and November, looking to return in March.

Stayed at the Sea View Hotel for the first time in January 2014 for three nights. Have usually stayed in chain hotels in South Florida, but decided to give this independent hotel a try based on a recommendation. The Sea View Hotel was recently refurbished and could best be characterized as "old meets new." Was glad to see owners kept... More

This is a lovely hotel in a superb location (we were there on Christmnas Eve and Bal Harbour is beatiful to behold). It has everything you would expect from a top class hotel in this location. Its just, well, tired. You can't name a single thing that should be there but isn't; its just worn out, needs a refurbish and... More

My family had an apartment next door and I have had several opportunities to stay at the Seaview and St Regis 1 building south. This hotel has a nice 1950-1960's charm to it with modern in room fixtures. Staff and service are top notch. Book well in advance for the best rate. On many occasions I had a high floor... More

I came to Bal Harbour for a conference at the St. Regis next door--and as a cost-saving measure, stayed at the Sea View. That was a big mistake. Especially compared to the St. Regis, the service was horrible--the concierge was outright rude to me. The breakfast was greasy and unsatisfying. You have to pay $12 to use the gym. The... More

We were booked into this hotel by our travel agency during our Florida-trip. The hotel looks a bit rundown, especially compared to all the other buildings in the vicinity. It could do with some TLC on the outside. Inside it is the same story. The reception desk is small and looks dated. Lifts look old and too well maintained. There... More

Location is great. Close enough to South Beach to go party without the late night noise of people coming back from the bars. It's right on the beach so you don't need to drive anywhere to go for a swim in the ocean. Or you can take a dip in the pool at night. Rooms where clean and the service... More

I like this hotel, it's been the 3rd time that I stay in Sea View Hotel at Bal Harbour and it's great. Great service, after getting a small room where my son's crib didn't fit they gave us a free upgrade to a suite (with kitchinette), on our second reservation we got a free upgrade to a bay view room....
