We have stayed at Essex House from April 18th to April 25th. I have reserved a superior king room but no such room was available when we arrived. So they propose to us to stay only one night in a standard room and then move to a spacious suite, which we kindly accept. The standard room is good...but small. The... More

Really enjoyed this hotel. In keeping of many of the old Art Deco hotels in the South Beach area. Very friendly staff prepared to help at all times. Not something you always find in USA. Loved the complimentary drinks and canapés at Happy Hour. Could sit on verandah and watch the amazing sights walking by. Close to all the action... More

Excellent South Beach Hotel close to the beach. Clean upscale room and helpful service staff. Linens are changed daily and bed is very comfortable. Beach towels are provided daily and a nice breakfast is included. Wilder sister Hotel Cleavlander is next door, so you can party when you want, and have quite at night when you want.

I have been to South Beach many times, but staying at the Essex this time was one of my best overall experiences. The convenient location and ambiance of the hotel were incredible. Additionally, the staff and customer service were fantastic. We dealt primarily with one front desk agent named Camilo who was exceptional. He went out of his to make... More

Stayed at Essex House and had a fabulous time! First and foremost, the smell when you enter the hotel is enchanting! Immediately you're in vacation mode, because the aroma of the hotel lobby puts you in a serene and tranquil state of mind. The smell is apparently White Tea Leaf! The staff is friendly and accomodating! I had a single... More

Dear JumiBabi3, Essex House is a serene and tranquil oasis in the middle of the madness of South Beach and we are so pleased that our signature white tea leaf scent was so relaxing for you.

The Essex House is an excellent option for a short stay or longer vacation. Outstanding customer service, beautiful building, half a block to the beach. We only stayed one night before leaving on a cruise, but we would absolutely stay again. Room was clean and bed was very comfortable. We loved having access to the Clevelander facilities, awesome night life,... More

Having visited South Beach many times, I am pleasantly pleased to review the Essex House. The location is central to a lot of what's going on, however it's the vibe of the hotel and its staff who made our stay extra special. We had the pleasure of meeting Kevin, Sherrod, Kevon, Wally, and Christian, all of who made our stay... More

Everything exactly as stated in their ad, and the best lemonade ever all day in the lobby! Everyone was very accommodating, from the doormen to the bartender. Bed and pillows were comfortable. Lots of choices for breakfast if you like carb overload. Quiet compared to the Clevelander.
