This is a fabulous Art Deco hotel in the perfect location for everywhere on South Beach. The lobby is magnificent and used to be featured in the Miami preservation Art Deco walking tours (incidentally well worth doing). The staff are very friendly and helpful, cold bottled water is available at the desk and chilled lemonade is available all day in... More

Great location, clean rooms, friendly staff and good european style breakfast. I will continue returning if the rooms rates keep reasonable for a 3 stars hotel. No view though. Garage next door with 20% discount.

I was here for a bachelorette party the second weekend in August. When I checked out we took care of our bill. The next week I saw a 170 charge on my card. I've been calling the hotel for 3 days and leaving messages but no one had returned my phone call for an explanation. I wanted to see if... More

Stayed there for three nights and the service standards were exceptional. Modest but perfectly acceptable room complimented by outstanding service by all staff. Would have no hesitation in recommending this establishment which is close to the beach and popular restaurant and entertainment strip.

Just returned home after a wonderful stay at the Essex House. The location is ideal for shopping, eating and beaching. No need for a car once you arrive. First impressions: Great A/C on a very hot summer day, extremely friendly front desk service, and time-capsule-like (but somehow modern) lobby decor. Felt like we walked into the 1920's Rooms were small... More

It was a wonderful stay at Essex. The staff is awesome, and very nice ! We stayed 13 nights, our room was always cleaned. I liked the proximity from the beach, ocean drive and everything else. I definitely recommend it !! It's also pretty quiet, what I liked, especially because ocean drive is not.

Hotel is in a great location. We stayed from Saturday to Tuesday. Many reviews commented on the noise from the Clevelander, we couldn't hear a thing once in the hotel. We stayed on the first floor. Room was small but clean, water pressure could be better. Staff is excellent. Will definitely stay there again. Beach is right around the corner.
