From the moment we arrived we were greeted with complimentary beverages from the fantastic barman Sammy. We felt at home as Carlos checked us in and we found our individual theme rooms. These were clean with quirky themed decor. The free wifi and excellent food made this a place to stay. The Staff Katie, Frederico, Robert and Yamandu were always... More

We didn't quite know what to expect when we booked online, but I can safely say I would not hesitate to book this hotel again. We stayed for 3 nights in June in the 'Halfway to Hollywood' room. First of all, it was a very well designed room (i.e, plenty to look at, good size safe, very spacious bathroom, both... More

Each hotel room has its own unique theme which is a treat in its own. The staff went out of their way to make our stay comfortable. It was convenient to have a small refrigerator in the room and the shower water pressure was great. Our reservation included free breakfast, bottled water in the room, and two free drinks during...

Very good location, in front of the beach and ocean drive. The staff was very nice and so helpful with everything we asked. The rooms are great. The only thing was missing was a drinks at the breakfast (not included).

We stayed at the Pelican over Labor Day weekend. The hotel itself is really cool in terms of design which makes it stand out from the typical. The hotel front desk staff was very nice and accomodated an early check-in which was great. Loved the perks at the hotel--complimentary happy hour for guests as well as breakfast. The location is...

Great service and a pretty decent room for the price paid. We had a great stay and will most definitely be back! The free breakfast, happy hour and chairs for the beach was an added bonus. We were immediately greeted and given the room key, the woman at the desk was awesome! The waiter staff was just as great!! The... More

I've been here at the pelican hotel twice, it was a pleasure to stay here due to the hospitality and kindness of Beppe Castiello (the restaurant manager) and every people who work at the hotel.. The junior suite is amazing, really cool furniture, and really comfortable beds. The hotel is based on the Ocean drive so you can imagine how... More

My gf and I visited Miami Beach for the first time. We chose this hotel based on the boutique affect and the proximity to the beach based on the map. In reality, the beach was VERY close to the hotel. The view of the beach was beautiful. There were complimentary chairs and towels given. The free breakfast leaves a lot... More

Great hotel - the vibe is upbeat, current, and fun. The staff are incredibly nice - reception, servers, housekeeping - everyone. Each room is unique. Food is good - complimentary hot breakfast, wonderful location - directly across from the beach. Really close to shopping (one street over). Close to bars and restaurants (and they have on in the building). Beach... More
