I booked the Pelican because of the style and individuality of the rooms. We arrived from only to find that we had been moved next door to the Casa Grande Suites, an 'upgrade' according to the Pelican. They even had their own "Pelican key' so it's clearly a regular occurrence. The suite was very big but totally soulless and definitely... More

From the first call to the hotel to checkout, top shelf. Reasonably priced restaurant, valet, hotel, beach amenities. Top notch friendly/warm staff across the board. This place had the best shower I have ever experienced in nearly 50 years (sounds crazy but oh so true). We truly had such a great time and they were the reason. Will be back... More

If you like fun and funky and want to stay in South Beach, you'll struggle to get a better hotel than the Pelican. The staff are great, it's in the heart of Ocean Drive and the rooms are all pretty cool (both in temperature and style). We stayed in Power Flower which was remarkably quiet given all the craziness going... More

This was my fifth time staying at the Pelican Hotel on Ocean Drive. Hotel is clean, check in was a breeze, friendly staff, great food on the terrace, the beach is across the road. Night life is all around, Mangoes is like 2 min walk, Collins Ave is one street over for great shopping. you don't need a pool, the... More

Rather than give a review I will simply put what we asked and what was given. 1) We asked for an early check-in and they said no. 2) We asked for a late check out and they said no. 3) We asked if we could get refunded the money we paid (55$ USD) for a beach chair from the company... More

Dear OttawaSenator, Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. Our check out time is 12 noon due to your travel dates falling under the Internaitonal Boatshow I'm confident you understand that rooms were not available for you to check in prior to our 3 PM check in time. The Pelican Hotel is comprised of 29 guest rooms,... More

Everything in this hotel was perfect. Rooms have an original deco and are comfortable and of a good size. What made this hotel a bit more special than others is all the little extras they throw in for free. Breakfast is included, you get 2 free drinks at happy hour, beach towels are provided and you get sunbeds for free... More

We stayed here in January after going on a cruise in the Caribbean and I cannot say enough good things about this hotel. The location is the best you can get in Miami right in the middle of the south beach action. The staff went above and beyond to accommodate us and make sure we had a great time. The... More
