We recently stayed at the Gale for one night on a pass through to St. Thomas. As many other people comment, the hotel is beautiful and full of vintage classic charm, a style I personally really enjoy and one of the reasons I booked the room. The location is great, right across from the beach, bike stations and lots of... More

THE GOOD First, let's start with the good. This hotel has been beautifully restored, and has terrific finishes. It is clean as a whistle and feels like a private club. There are 2 bars (the rear bar is quiet and discreet) and a coffee/espresso bar in the lobby as well. The food at the in-house italian restaurant is above average...... More

I have been to South Beach many times, but this trip was definitely one of the best, due in part to our hotel. The Gale was a GREAT place to stay. The location is great -- 1 block from the beach, walking distance from restaurants and shopping on Lincoln Rd, and easy to get around generally. It was a good... More

How anyone can give this hotel less than a 5 star is beyond me. I myself am a manager in the hospitality business, and as such did my research, granted while some of the negative reviews made me hesitant I rolled the dice and booked my stay for a 3 night weekend. What was the result? an amazing vacation that... More

This is not a hotel. It is a night club with rooms. It's a shame because the renovation is wonderful. But the noise issue is ridiculous. Admittedly I should have researched my trip more since I ended up in South Beach during the Ultra Music festival. But the festival was far less of an issue than the booming base from... More

Do not stay here. This is the worst hotel inn south beach. Younger better off paying a little more for a real hotel. If you are comfortable within section 8 housing then stay here but if you are a normal person with normal needs go anywhere else.

I love this hotel and the staff. From the beginning Miri gave me a very detailed tour and I booked my room right away. I was lucky to stay on the 3rd floor, I didn't hear any noise coming from the club. My reservation was for 4 days and I noticed the bellman service is not the best-they are never... More

The hotel has a club downstairs that blasts music so loud you hear it in your room (loud enough to not sleep) until 5am. The front desk offers ear plugs but no apology. Otherwise the hotel is clean, nicely refurbished and good service but clubbing in your room until 5am isn't exactly the point of paying $500+ for a hotel.... More

This place is all smoke and mirrors; It's a Mickey Mouse Operation to say the least. It looks and seems great until you experience the staff and lack of actual service.

This place is great! The location is perfect and the decor is beautiful. Definitely check out The Regent for the most incredible cocktails you've ever had! Ask for John or Angelo at the bar. Afterwards, head down to Rec Room for an amazing nightlife experience.
