We just got back from Miami South Beach this morning after a 7 night stay in the Essex House Hotel. We couldn't have asked for a nicer hotel to stay in for our first visit to Miami. The Hotel is located about 2 minutes from the beach and just around the corner from Ocean Drive, which has plenty of Bars... More

We arrived on the 31st of October for 3 nights of our honeymoon. We were immediately upgraded to a suite, and it was amazing! ! We had a kitchenette and a Jacuzzi. The room was clean and very spacious, and very comfortable. The location is perfect. Just off Ocean Drive and the ESPN bar is just around the corner where... More

I stayed here for a girls long weekend in mid October. We didn't know the area so booked this hotel based on the reviews and we weren't disappointed. The location is great, just one street back from Ocean Drive and next to the Clevlander hotel which is a lively outside bar with a dance floor. Even though we were next... More

We stayed at the hotel from October 29 to November 2, for celebrating my mother’s 72nd birthday. We choose this hotel to stay near the Art Deco district. It was not our first time in the city; we have been in Miami a dozen times and knew what to expect from hotels in that area, ancient, historic, listed buildings. But... More

We got there late on a rainy weeknight. It wasn't impressive at first glance. I'll admit it did grow on us though. The location is great, the people were nice and we could walk to most anywhere within a mile. There's no parking though. That might be obvious to some people, but it wasn't to me. The parking garage costs... More

Marcello, Damian and the rest of the staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was very quiet. Easy access to many restaurants on Ocean Drive. Short walk to the beach. You really don't need a car if you spending just a few days at the hotel.

I have stayed at the Clevelander in the past, enjoyed the stay but anted a room in a quieter hotel. I chose the Essex House because of it's shared amenities with the Clevelander. I cannot complain about the amenites..complementary breakfast and cocktail hour were very nice staff excellent BUT I was so disappointed with the room. This hotel is overpriced.... More

My son and I stayed at this hotel in December last year. Upon arrival the service was slow - we had arrived early and wanted to pay to see if I could pay an extra night as my son was not feeling well and he needed the sleep, this took forever to organise. I mentioned I already paid 2 nights... More
