Having not had a great nights sleep for 2 nights(we were only staying for 3) we spoke to the Front Desk Manager(George) who dealt with our complaint promptly and courteously where we were offered another room to sleep our last night, after noise again from the room next door (having a shower @ 12am), he also offered us a late...

This is a wonderful art deco hotel in the outer parts of south beach, it is perfectly located and is a great looking property, however don't expect a good night's sleep if you're in room 1211. The housekeeping store room is right next to the dividing wall to the bedroom and the staff start at 8 am so don't expect... More

This quaint art deco hotel was the perfect place to unwind following a very busy cruise. Friendly staff were very accomodating and friendly. This location is perfect and allows you to walk pretty much everywhere and is very safe. The front desk staff gave excellent advice on restaurants and places to go during our 3 day stay even warning us... More

We had a wonderful stay at the Hotel Pestana South Beach Art Deco Hotel from December 24-27. From check in to check out, Alvaro, Paolo, Catarina, and their colleagues made us feel very welcome and entirely at home. Their warmth and attention to details made for a great hotel stay! The Hotel Pestana comprises four Art Deco buildings with outdoor... More

We stayed four nigths at this hotel and we liked very much. It is not cheap but not so expensive as others in the same área. The hotel inside is modern and has a good service and nice heated pool. It is three blocs from Lincoln Road where you find shops and nice restaurants in a pedestrian only area. It... More

A family from South Africa stayed here for two nights. Very comfortable hotel in a good location. Negative's: 1. No parking at the hotel and valet parking costs 30 USD per night. 2. Breakfast was not great and does not lend itself to a four star hotel. 3. Restaurant staff are not well trained and are unprofessional in the way... More

Just got back today after staying at the Pestana Art Deco Hotel in South Beach, Miami. We went during our Winter Break and had a wonderful vacation. The rooms were meticulously clean, spacious and were extremely comfortable. The staff were cordial, friendly, accommodating and professional. A big shout out to Alvaro Padilla, the front desk representative, and Gregori Capella, the... More

I stayed for one night pre cruising from Miami in November this year. The hotel is in a good location within walking distance of Washington Avenue and Collins Avenue and about 15 minutes walk from South Beach itself. The reception is functional but not overly impressive, there is a bar/restaurant which is a little pricy and the rooms are clean... More

My friends and I had a great weekend staying at the Pestana Miami Beach during Art Basel this year. The hotel is right in the middle of all the action! Right around the corner are miles of beautiful beaches, shopping on Lincoln Road and nightlife on Collins Ave. The hotel staff couldn't have been friendlier! Accommodations are basic, comfortable and... More

First the good. Great location. Free Wi-fi. Friendly staff. Now the not so good. The entire hotel is tiled. I know it's S. Florida and humidity is an issue but it makes the hotel VERY loud. The bed was terrible. I felt like I was going to fall through every time I sat/laid on it. I had two cockroach experiences... More
