Stayed September 2013 We booked this place through a travel agent, lovely service from the people was a standout. Very friendly, rang to check if the room was ok once we checked in. Great breakfast with lots of choice, nice view at breakfast. The hotel was on the beach, and got to see stunning sunrises with just a quick walk... More

I generally felt great there - had a nice and large room with sea view. All a bit old fashioned, but undergoing modernisation currently. Super fast and free WiFi. Downside was the slow breakfast service, ordering a la carte as we could not go to the continental buffet for some reason. At checkout I nearly oversaw that they had some... More

My husband and I stayed in three different hotels in Florida this was the Miami beach stop off. It isn't in the centre of things which suited us but others may prefer to be nearer to the bars and nightlife. We were welcomed by an unsmiling receptionist who was reminiscent of Mrs trunchball from Matilda. The concierge who took our... More

Stayed here in September, it's about half an hour by bus to south beach, there was literally 10 guests in the hotel and they still wanted to charge us $10 for a chair at the pool. Crazy as there was no one besides staff at the pool. On our last morning our toilet over flowed and water went everywhere (disgusting)... More

found a deal through HotelTravel.com via Trip Advisor. Using HotelTravel.com made me nervous because the deal was too good and they charged my card up front. I called the Hotel to ask questions and confirm the reservation. A very elderly sounding woman answered and she was difficult to understand so I was initial uneasy about this place.

Stayed here for 2 nights, the hotel is in a huge need of a renovation. The rooms are very outdated and the bathrooms are probably from the 80's. Do not put your clothes in the walk in closet, they smell terrible after hanging there. Service is poor as well, the staff are in need of customer service training and a... More

We stayed at the Sea.View for one night in May. I had a voucher for a room for under $200, which seemed to be the reason why i was offered a room just over the entrance on the second floor. It was a smoking floor, and when I tried to change the room, I was told there were no rooms... More

We spent 4 nights at this hotel. Everything you would expect from a top class hotel in this location. The rooms are spacious and the upholstery is nice but again maybe just a little outdated.

Crowded out by more modern and larger hotels, the Seaview stands as a proud reminder of a bygone deco era. Much larger in size than those smaller hotel on south beach and angled for views, the building has a dramatic presence while approaching. Unfortunately, the grandeur of the exterior architecture is absent from the interior where a more formal, traditional... More
