The Impala was a very nice hotel, and an oasis wedged between the goings and comings of Washington Ave. and the uber-hotels further up on Collins Ave. The location is perfect, a block away from the beach, a few blocks from the shopping lower down on Collins, and a few blocks from the restaurants and bars on Espinola and further...

We chose this hotel as we wanted somewhere small and quiet off the main drag as I don't like big noisy hotels. This really suited us. There was a municipal car park on 12th so we planned to use that rather than the hotel valet. We arrived in the middle of a massive thunderstorm so we drove directly to the... More

My wife and I stayed at this hotel during our trip throughout South Florida. We typically stay at the W in South Beach; however, a colleague recommended the Impala for a great boutique hotel experience. Initially, I was very impressed with the decor and cleanliness. The hotel appeared small, quaint, and cozy. We enjoyed our stay until we encountered the... More

Very comfortable, clean and beautiful rooms. The best is how welcoming the staff is. They clearly care about the happiness of their guests. We arrived unprepared, knowing nothing about Miami, and they directed us to many great places, enough to make an awesome vacation week. Thanks for this great time !

Very nice hotel in excellent location. I find nothing wrong with this place. The rooms are clean and excellent. Bathrooms are really nice and the staff is very nice. There is a public parking garage one block away.

Me and my sister got the opportunity to check in a bit earlier than we were supposed to, which really helped us out. We also happened to get a free upgrade due to some late cancellation from another guest. The rooms are so nice and fresh, and the bed is soo lovely. It has a "home feeling" and the bathroom... More

I really enjoyed my stay at the Impala Hotel. The room was very beautiful, the bed was comfortable and I loved that they had bath robes available to use during the stay. I ordered room service from the Italian restaurant next door and my food was delicious! I would definitely stay here again.

My boyfriend and I stayed at Hotel Impala for 3 nights during the end of June 2014 to celebrate my birthday in Miami. This hotel surpassed our expectations. It has a very soothing Mediterranean feel as soon as you walk in. The staff was absolutely great and very accommodating. The rooms were very clean and tastefully furnished with an incredibly... More

My fiancé' and I decided to take a short trip to South Beach before attending a business conference in downtown Miami. Hotel Impala was the perfect spot! The rooms were very clean and the decor was beautiful. Everyone at the front desk was so nice and accommodating to our needs. The Italian restaurant out front is phenomenal....and I've been to...

Comfortable rooms feature wrought iron fixtures, wood furniture, and luxury bathrooms with coral rock.
