One of the nicest hotels I've ever stayed in - the rooms were lovely, beach towels and chairs available for use, free breakfast and free cocktails during happy hour. The hotel staff were very helpful in organising tours and transport throughout the stay. Definitely will not hesitate staying here again when I return to Miami!

The staff was well trained, helpful and always professional. The room was more than we expected; very spacious and comfortable. The food was great-free breakfast was included, and the bar was cozy as well along with great service from the bartenders.

The Pelican Hotel and staff gave us the complete south beach experience. We had complimentary breakfast, beach towels and chairs. We woke up to the beautiful park and beach from our ocean view window and we were right in the middle of ocean drive with everything within walking distance. We will be back!!!

The beddings were excellent, no noise (room 214). But the outstanding service from the front desk (Miguel and Mentore) was unmatchable , they organized all my bookings,... More
