We have just returned from a girls holiday in Miami, staying at the Dorchester Suites on Collins Avenue. What a great location. Perfectly positioned for the beach, clubs, shops and restaurants and bars. The suites themselves were great value for money, although the rooms claimed to have two double beds but they were more like large single beds. Our toilet... More

The hotel itself is indeed a little tired. We had booked a twin bedded room but arrived to a double bed configuration....soon sorted that one. There was another problem with our room in that the door didn't lock properly and after the first night it didn't lock at all so we had to move rooms which was a bit of... More

We stayed in a room behind the reception. Really quiet, but outdated. The suites out back looked newer and more up to date. Also room was quite small for family of 4 and 4 suitcases. Had to park the car 3 blocks down Collins Av. for $16 per day. Short walk to the beach and $15 resort fee include 2... More

I 'm glad that I found this quaint suite off of Collins Av., so you are a bit of walk to Ocean Av and all of the art deco area - but are plenty of ART DECO bldgs nearby, just not part of the historic district...full kitchen though not much pots/pans if you are really into cooking meals..but microwave and...

This hotel, like many on South Beach are not as luxurious as the boutique hotels, however it is definitely worth your stay if you are looking for something cheap, reliable, and located in a central location. The staff was extremely accommodating, the rooms were spacious and comfortable, and the pool area was accommodating. Really liked the bar and patio, but... More

The rooms were recently renovated and all new, and stylish. Very efficient cleaning staff and helpful staff in general. However, Carlos was the one person who went out of his way to help explain something or attend to whatever you needed. He is a very welcome compliment to the Dorchester. My only complaint is that with such a commodity in... More

I travel often and stay in many hotels. This is one of the worst hotel experiences that I have had. Let me begin by saying that the previous reviews on TripAdvisor and Expedia were positive. Perhaps this hotel is good for a spring breaker, but not for anyone over the age of 25. Please be aware of the following before... More

Do not stay here for the amount this hotel charges you can find much better locations close to beach and in the same locality. Staff were unhelpful and sultry and rooms dirty. Very basic indeed. Pictures they use to promote the hotel must have been taken a long time ago. The pool area is disgusting and dirty and we did... More

We rented 2 rooms here for a girls weekend. It was our second time staying here. The location is pretty good, about a 10 block walk to the Clevelander, about 3-4 blocks to the Lincoln Road mall and less than 2 blocks to the beach. For the $15/night resort fee, you get 2 free beach chairs ($20 value) and free... More

Hi All, I recently returned from the USA. Where I took my wife to Miami. After too much choice we choose the Dorchester suites. This was a mistake. We booked a queen bed room, we were given a room with two double beds. not very romantic. Fanny on the desk was rude and didn't care that we were on honey... More
