The outdoor area, rooms, and decor were lovely but dealing with the staff was a bit of a challenge (except for Cynthia, she was amazing). When we got there, a man checked us in at the front desk and I had a few questions since I had never booked or dealt with a hotel on my own yet. It seemed... More

First impressions were not good. An harrassed and probably incompetent receptionist kept me waiting for at least 10 minutes whilst she struggled with some basic function on her computer and was quite unfriendly, unhelpful and disorganised.

Excellent location but rather poor service (staff has forgotten how to smile - what is rather rare in Florida, we have seen). Our 2nd floor room was simply and very old fashioned equipped and was very poorly isolated: a lot of noise from inside or outside the hotel. In line with Miami rythm but a bit overwhelming when just landed... More

Based on reviews here and cost I had higher expectations. My problem was mostly the room. It wasn't very small but for a family of four with a baby it was uncomfortable. The room needs update ASAP - lots of tear and wear. Beds are wobbly. Bathroom is bordering disgusting. No place for necessities - tiny shelf above the toilet,... More

Rooms were nice. Right were I wanted to be. Bar seemed expensive to me. Breakfast was very nice. Airport bus stops right outside so that was excellent. I think it was about $3 from the airport. I got the same bus back it has to be the best deal in Miami

Loved this hotel. The staff was friendly and helpful. Our room was smallish, but clean and had character. The courtyard is well kept and the bar has nightly drink specials. THe location is ideal. Close enough to all the action, but quiet at the end of the night. Plenty of shopping and restaurants nearby. We had access to the beach... More

Loved this hotel, staff was accommodating and friendly, price was beyond reasonable for the area. Got there early, laz stored our bags so we could go to the beach. There is a $15. Daily beach fee, you get lounges, towels and beach access is right across the street. Location of this hotel is perfect, close enough to walk to everything.... More

The Dorchester was a pleasant stay. I traveled with my husband and this was our first stay in this hotel. We have vacationed in South Beach, Miami plenty of times, and we always stay in Collins/Ocean Drive, usually between 20st and 1st street. The hotel is located in a great area of South Beach since it is close to all... More

Everything was great and the service in the front desk was beyond. Carmen was on top of everything and was very sweet. I stayed because I was working the South Beach Wine & Food Festival and it was just across the street which was very convenient as well. All in all the stat was great and the fact that everything...
