This hotel has many issues. Noise-I appreciate its on Ocean Drive but music played loudly until 4am every night is not my idea of the 'quiet room' we requested! Our room was at the rear thankfully, goodness knows how noisy it was overlooking the front. We had to keep our curtains closed throughout our stay as we were directly overlooked... More

Thank you for your comments. I am very disappointed to learn of your inconveniences while visiting with us! Our location here in the heart of South Beach's Ocean drive is non-stop and active with entertainment and a lot of action and can be noisy. As to your other observations I don't recognize the hotel you encountered! I apologize that this... More

We were staying at Esplendor for a few days with two other couples. Th customer service was excellent-from Pablo who handled our luggage to Marisol at the front desk. When we required a change of rooms,Natalie(manager) seamlessly changed our location and inquired the next morning to make sure the change was satisfactory. You are in South Beach and if you... More

While on holiday in Orlando we decided to visit Miami for a couple of days - we found this hotel online and decided on it after reading the reviews. Great location, right in the centre of Ocean Drive , and across the road from the beach. When we checked in they upgraded us to a Junior Suite, which was beautifully... More

We arrived very early due to our flight! (7:00 am) - We stayed here prior to our cruise !!! The lady at reception (Natalie) was very accommodating, helping us check in early and arrange for us to have our breakfast (which was included) both day - (at arrival and departure). Our room had a modern Art Deco Design - very... More

The location is great. Right opposite the beach and plenty of bars and restaurants on the same road. The room was spacious modern and clean. Only downside is there is no sound proofing from the outside so can be a little noisy at night. Would stay here again though.

Me and my friend wanted to spend two nights in MIA before a cruise. We found a good deal on groupon for this hotel. The staff was very nice except for one guy who was to lazy to change the sheets for us. He just put a clean sheet over the ones we asked him to change. Our power went... More

We were alerted to this hotel via Hotel Tonight, and grabbed it for $84 a night in October. It's in a great location in the heart of South Beach, right across from the park and beach and the Art Deco District Welcome Center. Our room was interior with no view to speak of, but on the plus side it was... More

My wonderful wife and I stayed here to celebrate our 12th wedding anniversary and we had a great stay! The staff, Natalie, Marisol and Robert (and others) were great and genuinely attentive. The location is perfect for what SOBE has to offer. Would definitely stayhere again!

The hotel is large, has two bars located underneath it (they're a bit noisy at night so not suited for anyone that isn't up for a party). The rooms are really nice and it also has a pretty cool pool and a little fitness centre. Natalie at the Front Desk was really helpful and assisted with tours, transport and was... More
