As you may have gathered from the title I have give this review, I have very mixed feelings about this hotel. Whilst its location was very good and the staff were friendly and helpful, the hotel itself is quite poor and needs a total restyling. The pool was filthy but with a great beach round the corner you are much... More

Location, location, location, perfect for a family with teens. Dorchester utilizes it's sister hotel the Marseille for beach access and the use of umbrellas and each chairs. The pool at the Marseille is also very nice with spa water to keep hydrated available on the pool deck. Dorchester also has a pool, but it's a bit smaller. Both hotels have... More

This hotel is a pretty sweet deal for your buck. Location is GREAT and you get to use the Marseilles beach chairs for FREE. Don't expect luxury. The place has been remodeled and it looks nice but as far as decoration goes, it's a hot mess. My two main complaints are 1. breakfast is not included and 2. No microwave... More

I went there with my husband and I would definitely go back to this hotel. It was great!! The room was pretty big, the location is great, the pool is a little small but they give you passes to access the pool at the Marseilles (their twin hotel) and the beach with chairs and umbrellas, the bar was awesome for...

We stayed here for my Bachelorette Party. We chose the suites because it offered a kitchen, dining, and living area. I have no complaints about the hotel. The pictures are true to what it is.

As a lot of the properties in South Beach, the Hotel is old and that is the main problem. Building is not properly maintained and the room feels old and things don't work as they were supposed to. A few examples: Beds are not that comfortable, A/C does not work well, Bathroom is really small and overall maintenance could be... More

I found the Dorchester Hotel to be a decent hotel with daily rates that are relatively inexpensive by South Beach standards, but I do have a couple of complaints. We checked in at 4:15 pm but were told to wait 45 minutes before going up to our room because the housekeeping staff had not yet got around to cleaning our... More

Thank you for your time to post the your review, and your feedback. Our pool stays open until late evening hours for our guest’s enjoyment.
