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

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

We found this hotel to be in a very nice part of South Beach Miami, it was more in the neighbourhood but was still very close and within walking distance of all the shopping, restaurant and beaches. We did have to leave the housekeepers some notes each day to ask them to leave an extra tea bag etc and there... More
