My daughter and I just left the Essex after staying 3 nights in King suite. All in all this is a nice hotel although not really the best fit for us. I usually stay in hotels from 15th st to 20th st in SoBe. As I was traveling with my 20 year old daughter, I thought staying in the middle... More

After arriving to the hotel 5 minutes before midnight and being very tired, Sherrod was patient, friendly and accommodating. He exemplies great leadership skills. He took the time to explain the hotel amenities and recommended places within the property for relaxation...a welcome deviation from the hustle of Miami Beach. I will definitely recommend Sherrod and Essex House to family and... More

Dear Scott, We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your beautiful King Suite during you stay at the Essex House.

As hustle and bustle Miami Beach is, this personal gateway place was above and beyond what my wife and I were looking for. The service was second to none. Everyone couldn't do enough for us. Whether it was breakfast, dinner or just lounging around in the lobby. We were always asked by one of the hotel staff if there was... More

It was very nice, clean, and great staff. If you want to be in the middle of South Beach, stay here. The lobby is great the smell will draw you in, the rooms are updated and clean, don't let the elevator size scare you. I love that breakfast is free not a real breakfast but it's great compare to the... More

This property is located one block off Ocean and in the middle of So. Beach. Close to all the restaurants and beach. Older property as they all are around there. Room was in good shape and clean. Talking to other guests you don't want to be on the outside rooms by street. We were by the pool which closes @... More
