I came to Miami for my first time this August. I travelled completely alone. At first I had trouble with my credit card and started to panic but the front desk hostesses Rita and Liana were more than helpful, caring, and accomodating. They went out of their way to ensure that I started my vacation off stress free. It's a... More

Very classy yet comfortable hotel. Quiet and peaceful atmosphere. Staff goes above and beyond to accommodate its guest. Your satisfaction and needs are their top priority. Great location. Perfect if you like visiting the Clevelander but want a place where you can rest and relax away from the kaos. It's their sister hotel so you you can go over their... More

Overall it was a good stay, enough room, 2 blocks from the beach, breakfast served Too bad they had like a kiddy pool and no garbage can and table. The AC is extremely cold and the one in my room couldn't really be set, it was either heat or cool so we had to change it every few hours because... More

The hotel itself was only ok. I realize it's an old building, but the rooms were small and not very well apportioned. There are no ice or water machines, no in room fridge or microwave. The walls are thin, so when your neighbor comes in at 4am loudly drunk you are going to hear it. Also, be ready to pay... More

This hotel is the best hotel we could have stayed at! There is a parking garage next door, which is very convenient considering that it is right in the heart of South Beach. We were welcomed by Liona at the front desk who was so kind and helpful! After checking in to our extremely clean and modern room, we went... More

Myself and 5 friends went on our annual July 4th SoBe trip and decided to stay our first night at Essex House. We arrived at 11am and needed 2 rooms. Our rooms were ready and side by side. The rooms were pretty big. Well decorated and beds extra comfy. Bathrooms average and well kept. Lobby was beautiful. Location is perfect... More

We stayed here 3 nights. Spacious and clean rooms. Staff is always friendly and helpful. They give complimentary bottles of water at the front desk which is soo clutch. Part of the Clevelander and a 30 second walk to the outdoor bar- my favorite spot! Will be back!

I really wanted to love Essex House, but it just wasn't as great as I was expecting. We stayed here for 5 nights before heading down the Keys, it was myself and 2 sons age 6 and 15. The hotel itself in in a brilliant location, on Collins, just behind the famous Clevelander, a 2 minute walk from Ocean Drive... More
