I visited this hotel last year may and decided to write a review as it was such a nice trip. I stayed here for 1 week for my birthday with a group of friends. We had a few issues in the beginning with the rooms but the guest directed us to our travel agent as there was nothing they could... More

This is an interesting smaller hotel which seems to primarily cater to the international travelers coming to the Miami Beach area. I chose this hotel since it was within walking distance to the Miami Beach Convention Center where I was attending a conference and was significantly lower priced than others in the area. It's an older property, but it appears... More

An establishment located in a 1930s Art Deco building restricts the opportunities to modernise. However, there is no excuse for poor decorations and a lack of cleanliness. Paintwork was faded and chipped. In the bedroom, 40% of the window was obscured by an air condition unit. It was barely possible to see through the remaining 60% of the window but... More

All other hotels in this area are $300+ a night. I managed to snag this room at $170 for a Saturday-Monday stay. Which was a steal to be able to walk to the beach, walk into the nightlife areas, and a 20 min drive to the airport. I wouldn't recommened renting a car only because parking is $20/night. Uber and...

Our first time staying in South Beach. Location is good, able to walk to most areas. Staff is very nice. Rooms are small. It looks like they tried to update the rooms but didn't spend much money to do it. The bathroom is very small. This hotel charges a $15 per day resort fee for two chairs and an umbrella... More

My husband and I stayed here a few night either side of a cruise. The first room we were in for 2 nights was pretty bad. Leaky and unclean bathroom, the switch between shower and bath wouldn't stay locked so in the middle of a shower it would cut out and the bath tap would start running, the room was... More

I stayed at the Dorchester Hotel over the Super Bowl weekend (Friday to Monday) , and I must say that I was underwhelmed. I have read some of the previous reviews about this hotel, and while I might be a bit more critical than the average traveler, I cannot, for the life of me, see how anybody could give this... More

The photo's are very misleading on expedia! The hotel is old and the walls are paper thin so you can hear someone cough in the room opposite. The room door doesnt fit the frame properly so you can see the lights from the hallway. The bathroom is small with no ventilation so you come out of the showering feeling clammy.... More
