We've been for nine days in Miami staying at Daddy O Hotel. This hotel is great, the ambience of this old building is nice and the location too - the sea is very close, there are many shops whithin walking distance and, if you have little children, you can reach several playgrounds by foot. The rooms are clean and you... More

Stayed 4 days in this small quaint and most comfortable Hotel. They had a nice continental breakfast and Happy hour daily. The rooms are attractive and comfortable. The staff was so accommodating, especially Courtney and Natalia. I LOVED the front porch with it's comfortable seating and friendly guests! The fabulous Palm Restaurant adjoins the Hotel!!! I would return!! Jonique

This is my second place I've been here and was taking care of by the same person, Herold. He was very friendly and treated us very well. He recommended great places to eat, clubs, you name it, he's gave us his recommendation and we were not disappointed. Besides the great service from the staff, the rooms were great. They have...

This was our second stay at this hotel. It has a cute, homey, but upscale feel. The mattress was so comfortable that I called back the next week to get the brand. The free breakfast is nicer than most hotels - the coffee is gound to order. I absentmindly left my purse in the lobby restroom, and it was retrieved... More

From the moment I stepped foot into daddy o hotel, I knew I found the haven that my heavy heart was searching for. With my elderly mom in a nearby hospital, I can't tell you how much I appreciated the kindness, compassion, and accommodating nature of the entire staff, especially Harold, Courtney, Natalia, and Lisa. In addition to being clean,... More

This boutique hotel was perfect for us. I like the fact it was NOT in S. Beach/Ocean drive, but very accessible (10 min cab ride or less) It was in a quiet neighborhood and within walking distance to the beach. When my husband and I return to Miami, we will nit think twice and stay here

We really enjoyed the hospitality at this hotel, which are convenient located between Haulover beach (5 min drive) and South beach (15 min drive). Upscale neighbourhood with major shopping mall, and other services in a walking distance.

Booking through e-travel can sometimes be disappointing. WOW, did we get lucky on this trip! The staff treated us like family from check-in through check-out (particular kudos to Harold and Lisa). I almost regret giving this hotel the rating it so richly deserves since it may affect my future booking chances but I'll take that risk, Daddy O can't be... More

We have been there in June for two nights, Roland did really everything to make our stay comfortable. Thanks you so much for all you've done (Nikki Beach with Popov was awesome!) The rest of the staff was very nice and helpful as well, the breakfast was fine. The area around the hotel is very beautiful and you feel safe... More

Highly recommend.If you like large hotel chains with amenities then this is not the place for you! Daddy O reminds me of a small friendly European hotel. The location is great..... a block to upscale Bal Harbour and 3 blocks to the beach. The rooms are well appointed, very clean and well maintained. The beds are so comfy... I'm actually... More
