We pulled up out front at the valet parking. You will see a cafe. You have to walk inside to get your car checked in and yourself. Very easy. We enjoyed the happy hour which is every night from 4-6pm. Two drinks person. Great bartenders. They provide beach towels and chairs. They also provide a complimentary yummy breakfast each morning.... More

I have been staying at the Pelican since 1993 annually. It is by far the best boutique hotel in South Beach with an amazing staff. The rooms are great, the food is incredible, and staff even better. They always do all they can to make my stay there as comfortable as possible.

I stayed 4 nights at the Pelican and enjoyed a perfect package: A nice room for Miami Art Deco district, included breakfast, happy hour drinks in the afternoon a beack chair service plus well organised valid parking at a good rate - right in the Center of Ocean Drive activities. And the staff was very friendly and helped with everything... More

This is one of the iconic buildings on Ocean Drive and its deco style really lives up to expectations. Fantastic team - warm, generous with their time and information, and really helpful - umbrellas provided for the rain, hairdryers after the rain! Wonderful room, great bar (fabulous cocktails) very good food. But the fabulousness comes at the expense of sleep... More

The hotel was alright during my stay however it's response after I left was brutal. I forgot a gold chain in the room and someone from the hotel kept it. When I called to find it the staff was unapologetic and called me a liar. The experience was really unprofessional and disappointing.

Dear Dinohudson, Time and time again, guests when traveling hide personal belongings inside hidden zippers in their suit cases instead of your room safe. Just this week (April 7th) we had a guest that lost their beauty case and called the police. He was outraged and yelled many aggressive comments. The case was found behind the sink in the bathroom.... More

My wife and I were traveling to Aruba and stopped in Miami for a few days. This is a cute, boutique hotel that is in the middle of everything. I'll echo a recent review that said "...Check in was a bit…odd. Lots of staff hovering around as part of the Pelican Cafe below...". This is true but we were directed... More

The Pelican Hotel is an institution on Ocean Drive. But it is more than a beautiful decorum or an iconic piece of Art Deco architecture. Thank to its very welcoming and effective front desk and staff, including the “Pelican Angels” taking care of the rooms, my wife and I felt both at paradise and at home during our stay. Our... More

Couldn't be more centrally located on Ocean Drive on South Beach. Wonderful just for this, though I was happy we had a room at the back of the hotel. Could have been noisy otherwise. The hotel is owned by design brand Diesel I believe, and it is evident - industrial decor with each room having its own theme (I stayed... More
