4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We had some mixups with the reservation but the hotel was very accommodating to sort it out even with them being oversold & during Ultra/Miami Music Week. The Japanese restaurant was worth it in itself! All of the staff in this establishment as well as the hotel were incredible & we were very happy with the quiet in the room... More

Location was everything with this place. We were literally a 3 minute walk to the beach. And we felt like we were in the middle of everything. I came down here with some girlfriends for spring break and we were all in awe about the service we received. Everyone from the front desk, especially Domingo Llerandi to out favorite bartenders,...

Art Deco wherever you look, and this hotel is one of those. This hotel is on the first parallel street from Oceans drive and on the 10th street. This means you are merely 1 minute’s walk from the epicenter of the noise and partying. Some of this noise could make it´s way into the room, but with AC running that... More

Fabulous jewel in the middle of Miami Beach. Enjoyed the quiet oasis in the middle of the hustle and bustle of Miami Beach. Well appointed rooms...friendly staff. You will be happy you stayed here. Definitely use the valet parking...as parking is very difficult in this area. If you want a quiet room pick one on the courtyard.

This hotel was a delightful find! Being very centrally located in South Beach, things can get very noisy in the area. This hotel is one block back from Ocean Drive which provides for a somewhat quieter stay while being just a minute or two walk away from all the activity. The staff at this hotel is truly AMAZING! They are... More

Stayed for 2 nights post cruise. Staff were outstandingly friendly, welcoming and flexible and could not have been more helpful throughout our stay but particularly in offering us an early check in. Location is great and being just back from Ocean Drive was a blessing during Spring Break. The hotel provided an oasis of calm. Nice to have a choice... More

This is the 2nd time we've stayed here; location is a big part of it. We like to go read up on the Clevelander's 4th floor rooftop patio, and then go back to the Essex House where we don't have to listen to the relentless pounding of the music (yep we're Old haha). (Essex House does have lounge chairs by... More

Very friendly staff, checking in took 2 minutes, the suite where I stayed with my daughter was spacious and very nice. 2 min walk to the beach and the restaurant by the lobby was delicious, great food and service, not to add their complementary breakfast and happy hr (wine and sushi) I highly recommend this hotel.

The Essex House was comfortable and the staff were very helpful and friendly. Included Continental Breakfast was a step above the rest, with Danish and croissants included. The beds were very comfortable and rooms were not too spacious lacking in furnishings to accommodate all the travel goods one needs. There was no desk, chair, lounge chair. The closet was larger...
