Very nice hotel. Quiet and Clean. The staff was friendly and offered us breakfast while we waited for our room. Loved the mural and the art deco touches in the lobby. The room was a little small for three people.

This is a great couples hotel in a good location just 100 yards from the beach. With the tourist info center just nearby you can plan your time in Miami with little difficulty. Although the hotel is fairly quiet it's sister hotel next door is party Central. So if this is not your cup of tea beware. Rooms are nicely... More

I stayed at the hotel for a week during a business trip. This is not a business hotel, but the city was crowded so it was the only available at a non ridiculous rate. I got a suite in a kind of annex building across a patio. The room was big as well as the bathroom that has a Jacuzzi... More

This hotel is great in all manners! The location is perfect, right in the heart of South Beach and Ocean drive. Walk directly to the pink lifeguard tower to the beach or walk around interesting Ocean drive where you can find nice restaurants and bars and artdeco design. The hotel staff is awesome and the hotel itself is very clean... More

Stayed for two nights before going on a cruise. Stayed in one of the suites on the first floor. I loved how it was decorated and how everything was laid out. The bathroom had a jacuzzi tub big enough for two, the living area was spacious and the bed was very comfortable. Check in was seamless, front desk clerks were... More

The location is great. That is the best part of this hotel. But the hotel itself is not great. Without the location, I'd never return. When you walk in, the place is very dim and outdated, which is not a huge deal, but the room itself was extremely small. The bed was probably a queen and took up most of... More

Good location but pretty basic hotel. Not necessarily a 4 star level. Staff were great very accommodating. The hotel is linked to Cleveland hotel which is young and a little tacky.. Therefore this hotel could have the over spill. That said my stay was fine.

Essex House is a great hotel. The staff was excellent and very helpful. The location is perfect, a block away from the beach and right in the heart of South Beach. The room was very nice with big windows and comfy bed.
