Loved the retro decor of the place, everything has been kept in retro style, from the original furniture, to the refurbished plumbing and lighting, but everything works very well. The staff was amazing, easy going and extra kind. The location is about as central as you want to be in South Beach. it could be maybe noisy , but i... More

I'm not one to write reviews for every single place we've stayed, but I have to share the absolute wonderful experience at The Pelican! From the wonderful valet who parked our car, to the cheery and funny guys at the Front Desk! Now, our friend Cristian who is not only the bartender but a true concerned guide, advisor, mixologist and... More

Very clean! Themed room decor was interesting. Great location. However...they have the hardest beds I hv ever slept on!! Barely got any sleep. Not only because the bed was so incredibly uncomfortable, but also the noise level. We could hear everything that was happening in the rooms next to us. Including the very inappropriate sounds made from the couple in... More

To complement our line of mattresses, which is called "Sleep On Green" we offer Orthoflex – a natural wood base frame with adjustable wooden slats – that allows the sleeper the opportunity to adjust the firmness of the Sleep On Green...

All of the people working here were so friendly and couldnt do enough. The breakfast and food is really nice. The location is STUNNING! I would recommend Miami to... More

This is a wonderful hotel. The rooms are unique and creative. The staff are exceptionally friendly. The hotel is steps from the beach. I like the fact that you get a free chair at the beach, which is a savings of $25 a day. I love the free happy hour to get your night started. The hotel also has a... More

We stayed one night at the Pelican Hotel. It's big plus was value for money. The room price includes breakfast, two free happy hour drinks, free towels and chair for the beach and no resort fees. This is an older hotel but with a funky designer theme. Each room has a different boutique design. Our room was the Born in... More

We visited Pelican Hotel/Cafe on Ocean Drive tonight. We are here on vacation and this was my first time on South Beach. Well, I was not disappointed. Besides the great welcoming from the doorman Freddie, the server Telefica was awesome! My husband and our friends really enjoyed our night. The only thing that I noticed was that they try to...

I have NO complaints about this hotel. Everything was wonderful! Stayed here over Fourth of July weekend this year (7/2-7/5/15) and had an excellent time. Our room was "Born in the Stars & Stripes" which was perfect for the holiday occasion! The room was very clean & just the right size. After the room was cleaned each day, we were... More

I was in Miami with my family on april and we spent a beautiful stay at Pelican hotel. The staff is wonderful and Mentore feel you at home. You are really in the core of Miami Beach in front of the ocean. The palms of Lummus park give you a fresh sensation and Pelican lead your vacation.
