We booked a night (before a cruise) here on the strength of the reviews on Tripadvisor, allied to a competitive room rate for the location. Having never stayed in Miami, we thought somewhere on South Beach and near the nightlife/restaurants would be a good move. The hotel is nicely situated adjacent to the sea-front and the many cafes and restaurants... More

I just recently stayed at Essex House for a long weekend girls getaway. I cannot rave enough about how excellent every staff member I came in contact with was. They were extremely friendly and helpful and really made the trip that much better. Their bar/restaurant is very nice and the location is perfect. I could not have picked a better... More

Perfect placement just off Ocean Drive. Staff is helpful in any way needed and always smiling. Breakfest is OK - a standard continental. Don't expect eggs, but other than that just fine. Only negative thing is the not so soundproof rooms. You can hear everything that goes on in the rooms next to yours. Would stay again.

The Essex is very conveniently located in Central South Beach. Check in was relatively simple and the staff was friendly. We upgraded our room to a King Suite. The suite was located on the first floor and had a decent living area with a couch and a couple of extra chairs. The walk to the room was "old school" and... More

Came down from Canada with a buddy to stay in South beach, this hotel is very good. It is very close to the beach and all the restaurants that south beach is known for. The only issue I had was the rooms were a bit small, and there was no safe inside to store my laptop. But other than that... More

This is a very nice hotel, located in the middle of South Beach. The beach is 3 minutes walk. We stayed here in october 2014 and had a very pleasant stay. Check in was a breeze, our receptionist was very friendly. The room was big enough and our beds were fantastic. We had about 5 pillows to choose from. Breakfast... More

Loved this old hotel. The rooms have been updated and the bed was wonderful. They have complimentary happy hour and a very nice continental breakfast every morning from 8am to 11am so you can sleep in and still enjoy. The restaurant on premises is very good and the bar is intimate. Great customer service all around. We had a grea... More

I was wonderfully surprised by the very friendly staff. The rooms were great, and very clean. The only complaint I have is the shower tends to scald you if someone on your floor flushes the toilet. Can't wait to come back!
