The Pelican is just what I hope for in a boutique hotel. The welcome was warm. The décor is quirky but quality. Someone is paying attention to the details. The bed was very comfortable. Our room was at the very back, with a corner window, lots of light but no view to speak of, but that suited fine: it meant... More

First time at the Pelican Hotel, the room was very clean and the staff very friendly and helpful. We were a little skeptical when we arrived the halls have a funny smell not sure if it was the air freshener in the hall or the old building but very clean. The hotel gave each guest a credit for breakfast, two... More

This was a great choice for our girlfriend mini trip. As other reviewers have said, the location can't be beat. In addition, the staff is very friendly and helpful. It's also a good value for the money - free wifi, 2 free bottles of water each day, 2 free drinks each at happy hour, 2 free beach chairs, free breakfast... More

Stayed 4 days at this hotel, with my wife. Amazing location, close to all the fun. Free breakfast and evening cocktails provides good start both morning and evening. Daily Valet parking with reasonable rate, compared to street parking. The only thing we did not like was the bed, not so soft and rather small. Definitely a good place to visit... More

We rented beach chairs and umbrella from Warren and Justin today on Miami Beach. Their service was very attentive and the clean towels covers for the chairs were excellent. When you go to the beach I hope your lucky enough to have Warren taking care of you!!

We recently spent 4 nights at the Pelican. We chose it because of the location and the reviews on Trip Advisor. The Pelican is located in the heart of the bustling activity along Ocean Drive, great for restaurants, drinks, and people watching. The beach is an easy walk across the street. The restaurant at the Pelican offers good food and... More

Stayed for two nights, overall good accommodation. As previous reviews mention the location is great, rooms small but cosy and clean. Our first night started off bad when we after unpacking, having a shower and then finally getting into bed found that the bedsheets where full off sand (under the pillow and sheets), a real mystery. Also the AC wasn't... More

You can go to a run of the mill hotel if that's what you like. If you want something different give this place a try. Clean. Affordable. Courteous staff. Perfect location. On the beach. Free breakfast. Good food. Avant-garde decorative styles. I like supporting small businesses. What more could you want?

My husband and I just checked out today after a weekend stay. Excellent in most every way!! The rate includes free breakfast and 2 cocktails per person daily. Loved the mojitos loaded with fresh mint. Breakfast and service was excellent. Location is perfect- walkable to everything we wanted. Our room was themed "half way to Hollywood" and was nice and...

We were traveling with friends and wanted a nice little Miami Beach get away. The Pelican Hotel is in a terrific location right on Ocean Drive in the Art Deco District. Tons of great restaurants, clubs and shopping within easy walking distance. Directly across the street from the beautiful beach. Very easy to catch a bus to go to other... More
