This was our first visit to Miami and the Essex House Hotel made it extra special. We travelled as a couple with our sixteen year old son, in the company of another couple and their sixteen year old daughter. We arrived late in the evening and were greeted warmly by friendly staff in the amazing and icy cool reception area.... More

We spent the weekend in South Beach recently and booked The Essex House after having walked through it on an earlier trip. From the moment we walked in, we were greeted warmly by every staff member we saw. The front desk staff were very nice and upgraded us to a suite (we had booked a king room). Our room was... More

We are a couple in our early 30's travelling from Australia. We are in the US to learn about the culture, rather than party, so we were initially hesitant when we realized that our 'sister' hotel next door was party central. But our fears were unfounded. The walls and windows are amazingly sound proof, and we didn't hear a thing.... More

Couldn't have asked for a better experience. The staff were terrific - very friendly and helpful. The hotel is a clean and tastefully decorated art deco building in a convenient location that is within walking distance of all the South Beach area. The room was clean and comfortable. The daily inclusive breakfast was delicious and got our days off to... More

All I can say is hats off to this hotel. It's great. The staff are great, rooms a little outdated but very clean. I had to point out a few staff members who deserve recognition. First and foremost I'd like to thank Zabria (I asked her to pronounce it and spell it for me a few times haha) she was... More

We stayed at the Essex House over the 4th July weekend and everything was amazing. The service and the location (right near the beach as well as the south beach shopping district) were great. The staff were very friendly and helpful and allowed us to check in early and check out late. The cocktails at Zen Sai within the hotel... More

I didn't book it, the best man did. We went for the WMC and I have to say i wasn't expecting much but I was pleasantly surprised. Great staff, banging happy hour and the rooms were pretty good. Awesome art deco building with a great reception area.

I stayed at the Essex hotel 6/27th, pre cruise. We arrived around 11:30 PM, there were several people in the main lobby but no one behind the front desk. After waiting about 15 minutes the front desk agent finally showed up. He was very friendly and efficient but having to stand in front of a front desk this late at... More

The location is very close to the beach and and in the middle of where all... More
