I agree completely with the previous reviewer who said if you manage your expectations, you'll enjoy yourself. We're a couple in our early 30's working in the film industry, who are by now very experienced boutique hotel travelers. We had previously visited Miami and stayed in South Beach at the wonderful Angler's on Washington. We decided to try something out... More

This isn't a hotel for the super luxury-oriented traveler - but we loved the place! The spare but cool decor, the spa, enormous and clean pool, outstanding food, good service all made it a terrific trip. We don't care for crowds and found this to be relatively low-key and relaxed. Although not in the center of South Beach activity we... More

The Standard hotel chain has a formula: transform so-so properties near urban hot spots into hip, but budget-conscious destinations. They've done a very nice job in Miami Beach, but one needs to know what to expect before arriving. Rooms are on the small side & reflect the fact that it's a converted 50's motel. You won't have a view, much... More

That's right! Worms crawling around in our room. We checked in and within 10 minutes checked out. We did receive a full refund but had to threaten to call the Health Dept.

My husband and I were so excited about this trip. There was a heavy rain storm during our stay that shut the hotel down almost entirely for over 2 days. No electricity, no A/C, no "hot" food, no service. We went here for the Spa elements of the hotel and NOTHING was available to use. The staff was no help... More

This hotel was definitely an experience rather than just a hotel. A updated old motel converted into a high class place for relaxation. From the start you walk in and are welcomed in by the great staff at the desk. Then as you look around you notice that its very clean and with many places to relax including couches &... More

Some of the reviews are a little harsh, but I think it all comes down to what you paid and what your expectations are. We got an excellent deal through hotwire.com, though we did not know where we were going to end up. We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived at 'The Standard'. It was low-key and stylish, and had... More

We were in Miami for my partner's grandma's 90th birthday celebration. We are in our late 30s/early 40s, a relatively cosmopolitan couple, from L.A. and before that NYC. We loved our stay at The Standard. Service was excellent, especially by Alex from the front desk who showed us to our room, and Steve from valet. We ate at the restaurant... More
