The service at the Pelican was wonderful we decided on this hotel on a recommended from a friend. What can I say, first of all we arrived early at the Pelican after our cruise. Since we had our luggage we were willing to stay around until check-in. Upon arrival Mentore (I hope spelled his name correctly), offered to hold our... More

I loved this hotel! The hotel bar had amazing drinks and were free to hotel guests during happy hour each day! The hotel was clean and very eclectic. Many of their rooms have 2 twin beds, which I didn't understand, but luckily they upgraded my husband and I to a queen bed.

Yet again, the Pelican Hotel has met my expectations. Clean room (Viva Las Vegas). Breakfast is now a buffet style which is a change since my last stay in March 2014. There is a lovely 'happening' feel to the hotel. Front desk staff particularly nice and welcoming.

This is a really funky cool boutique hotel. the rooms are all themed with a sense of humor thrown in....we loved staying in the Fortune in Aluminum room! the staff is very friendly and knowledgeable, th hotel is right in the middle of everything on Ocean Drive in South Beach step outside and you are right across from the Ocean.

Great cool hip hotel in the heart of all the action. Restaurant is top notch and service was very good (which is very hard to find in Miami Beach). Rooms are a bit small however the quality of all the materials (sheets/soaps/bed) was excellent. Would highly recommend.

From start to finish the staff was accommodating, friendly and helpful. The food was very good (although somewhat expensive...welcome to South Beach), Overall the hotel was a great experience, with the retro feel, cleanliness and pleasantness of the staff, this is a must and a great bang for the buck.

I had to go to Miami to apply for a visa at a consulate there. We decided to make the best of it by getting a hotel on Miami beach. We picked Pelican randomly but I am so happy we did. The staff were incredibly gracious and genuine. The hotel is one of the art deco style hotels along Ocean... More
