We visited with my friend - it was annual reunion for us during Memorial Day weekend. Everything was great!! Where do I even start... This hotel has it all - great customer service and personal approach, unique rooms, breakfast included, and serious cocktails for happy hour every day! Across the street from the beach, with complimentary beach towels and chairs... More

We choose this hotel due to the price. It seemed the best value for money on Ocean Drive. It is directly opposite Miami beach, location can not be faulted, its right in the middle of the hustle and bustle of Ocean Drive. However the quality is reflected in the price. The welcome we received was fantastic, check in staff were... More

A great hotel if you like being right at the centre of nightlife in Miami and you want to be close to the beach. The hotel is quirky with each room following a particular design. Rooms are adequate in size and my bathroom was nice and large. The aircon is great but don't use the overhead fans...my room vibrated at... More

I took my husband here for his birthday weekend. We had a great time in Miami Beach, and this hotel was great! Two complimentary drinks and breakfast included, as well as towels for the beach if you want to go (it's across the street). Great location, can walk to many places. Decor in the hotel was really cool and unique.... More

Hubby and I stayed one night and absolutely loved it. Staff is very nice. The room was clean and comfortable. We each received two complimentary drinks at happy hour. They also included a delicious breakfast! The hotel is right in the middle of South Beach! Can't get any better than this!

Fantastic location (Ocean Drive facing the Atlantic), great amenities (free drinks at happy hour, free beach towels and chairs, and free breakfast), nice front desk and bartender staff, and even chocolates on the pillow at night. It's a great building that has been beautifully redone. I loved this hotel -- small rooms, but very comfortable and well appointed.

Great location right on Ocean Drive in the Art Deco district. Happy hour for residents includes 2 free drinks each night - including cocktails - wow - the bar staff put sooo much booze in each cocktail - swaying after just my free drinks. Breakfast was also good. The room though didn't match up to the rest of the hotel.... More

There are many places to stay on South Beach, but the Pelican Hotel is simply the best. Cleverly designed hotel with tastefully eclectic roomsn, great amenities (including free happy hour), and friendly helpful staff make this place the most enjoyable stay my wife have had in South Beach.

My wife and two-year-old recently stayed for New Year's and had a wonderful time. Each and every member of the staff was exceedingly friendly and accommodating, often going out of their way to help and entertain our daughter. The hotel location is perfect as well; close to everything you'd want to see in South Beach. We hope to return soon!... More

Enjoyed my stay. Stylishly designed and decorated in a humble way. Nice amenities (hot breakfast, two drinks at happy hour, gym use at Equinox, towels and chaise for beach, wifi). Location is +/-. Beach is across the street, but the street is horribly congested. But the latter is what you sign up for if you go to South Beach. Staff... More
