Paper thin walls, constant street traffic. The bathroom was dirty and crumbling. After a sleepless night a coffee pot in room would be nice. The location is fantastic how ever even in South Beach a little sleep is needed..would not recommend.

Stayed here for one night before a cruise and would certainly recommend the Dorchester. It is ideally located and is very clean with good sized rooms. It might not be the most modern hotel in Miami but it is friendly and comfortable with a cosy little bar.

The hotel is conveniently located on Collins Avenue just across the street from the hotels that border with the beach. Despite some renovations, the rooms are definitely outdated. A safety deposit box and a mini fridge are available. The bathrooms are regular size, but quite a few things are scratched, the bathrooms were clean, but appeared to be very old.... More

I'll be honest, I was nervous after reading bad reviews on Tripadvisor etc, but I was a lot more impressed. When we arrived we were given a room that had a missing safety deposit box, and no window blind - things we didn't discover until the evening. When we informed Front Desk, they were really helpful in letting us have... More

I recently stayed at the Dorchester Hotel a few months ago and it was fantastic! The location is amazing... smack in the middle of South Beach. When I arrived I was helped out by this wonderful gentleman named Aaron. He took care of my family and I and helped us enjoy a great stay. The room was perfect for my... More

My first time to Miami, the hotel was average but looking at prices you get what you pay for. Check in was easy, room was ready at 4pm. Room is nice and clean - I had a one bedroom that was updated on the first floor. This place appears to have been apartments converted to a hotel. The AC worked... More

Stayed at the Dorchester during first 2 weeks of October. Remember what this hotel is about - it is not the Fontainbleu or Lowes so in that context it is very good although some room for improvement. It is of the Deco period and is clean, tidy and we found the service overall to be very friendly and helpful. Towels... More

Perfect location, very nice staff and very helpful. Close to the beach, Lincoln Rode and more. Had a great time!! The room was very nice and clean, happy hours at the bar, very nice pool. The only issue we had was the temperature of the shower, but was quickly repaired. I'll definitely be back!!

We give this hotel three stars because the location is their only big plus. It's close to the beach and within walking distance of several points of interest. There is a bus stop in front of the door(real cheap way to get to the airport - $2,25 one way. A taxi charges standard rate of $32,-) The room was simple,... More
