Nice atmosphere and very friendly staff. When arriving, the room that we booked (for 3 adults) were not available first night. Got a suite.. and an air mattress ..that didn't keep the air. No good first night. But helpful, nice attitude from staff, and got a nice suite next day. Breakfast; Good! (Could reduce amount of disposable items at breakfast)... More

Our original booking had been with the Clevelander, but we were transferred to Essex House (at the suggestion of the Clevelander staff) as it is quieter and more appropriate for our age profile (60+). This is a great art deco hotel, not too small, not too large, on Collins Ave, one block behind Ocean Drive, so still close to the... More

So we went to Miami Beach for 4 nights ahead of a cruise, and after reading all the good and bad reviews we decided that this was the place for us. One morning we went on a trip to key west over the day, and they even let us bring breakfast from the hotelbar. Great space in the room, nice... More

Me and my boyfriend stayed there for 8 nights. The staff is very friendly and service minded. We got a room that was very noisy from outside and the staff was very helpful in changing the room. If you went to the beach you got a towel and a bottle of water, it was very appreciated by us. During the... More

We arrived 3am and were checked in fairly quickly which was excellent, staff were very helpful. WE had an issue with a noise around our room at night and we complained and were moved to a different room immediately. Every member of staff on the front desk were super friendly and didn't mind helping with any problems we had. Free... More

You can't get a better location in Miami Beach ! It is one back from Ocean Drive so less noisy than its sister hotel however you can use the facilities. The rooms are generous in size and the patio has lots of lovely shade in which to relax. Breakfast is basic but plenty for us - if you want more... More

You cannot go wrong with the Essex House. While the rooms aren't over the top fancy, they are clean (very important), comfortable, and the staff are amazing. In particular Kevin at the Front Desk, helped with anything you needed, very personable, friendly and someone I am proud to do business with. He made check-in a breeze and did a great... More

Everything on this hotel was just great. From customer till the restaurant dinner and breakfast. I loved the staff. They make you feel so welcome. Thanks Kevin! Valet parking was perfectly organized and they helped me out day after day with all my shopping bags. How wonderful! The breakfast team was great and the dinner there was amazing! Location is...

When checking in we originally wanted to stay in the Clevlander, but due to a issue they wanted to place us in the Essex House. I was reluctant because I paid water front prices for the Clevlander, so I wanted a discounted rate at the Essex House. After speaking to one manager who was extremely rude, and knew nothing about...

Picked this hotel sight unseen for a group meeting. Based decision on feedback and ratings. Did not disappoint. Great staff, comfortable rooms and a location that simply can't be matched on South Beach. My biggest concern was noise. The Essex is tucked behind its sister location which is on Ocean Drive. We had no noise issues at all. Classic Art... More
