The Clay is located perfectly for a vacation or long weekend in South Miami Beach. Just 2 blocks from the beach via a beautiful beach access park. Espanola Way is just like a trip to a really fun Spanish village. The owner of the Clay Hotel also owns several outstanding restaurants on Espanola Way. Each is totally faithful to the... More

The Clay Hotel is located on Espanola Way, a quaint and very romantic 'Little Spain" street in the heart of South Beach, Miami. I believe this hotel is a great value and very beautiful. The rooms looked new and very well kept. The bathroom was sleek and clean and the views onto Espanola at night all lit up were breathtaking.... More

You don't need to spend a fortune to enjoy the spirited life on South Beach. The Clay has been an institution there for many years, with its lovely craftsman façade and ceiling in carved and turned wood. The rooms extend off of Washington Street into the next block, an entertaining walk along Espanola Street, which has been closed to traffic... More

The location is great!!! Española way is a very pretty street full... More

We had a great experience as guests at The Clay Hotel in Miami Beach. From the courteous valet who greeted us to the gracious front desk gentlemen and then to our beautiful and so comfortable room - all combined to make our weekend stay very special. The management has made sure that the building has retained all the charm of... More
