The service at this hotel was impeccable. The management and staff at the Crowne Plaza Z Ocean hotel was extremely friendly and helpful. When I say they went above and beyond to make our time there memorable, I really mean they put the extra effort in. Everyone on the staff (from the bellman, to the front desk, to the bartender)...

I highly recommend the Z, seemingly the most elegant of the hotels around here. Very comfortable and refined. Staff is excellent. In particular, Celia, Miguel, Jeff and Robin were very helpful. If I visit Miami Beach again, I plan to stay at the Z.

This is an outstanding hotel. Each and every staff member went out of their way to serve us. We had a room with a balcony overlooking Collins Avenue. Great room and great people watching. The Manager's Reception was very enjoyable as we got to meet travelers for across the world.

This is a lovely hotel that feels like a quiet refuge in the midst of the craziness of South Beach during Spring Break. It is very well located; across the street from a less congested portion of crystal clear South Beach and within walking distance of many restaurants, bars and shops and the very cool Deco District. The room itself... More

Had a penthouse suite. It was reasonably priced considering it's location we had top floor balcony view toward Collins and room view towards ocean drive. I could have stayed in the room for the 4 days but that would have been a waste of time and weather. Great hotel service.

This is a very cool little boutique hotel. Must stay is jacuzzi penthouse. 2 story with awesome balcony and hot tub. BBQ for fun entertaining. The Happy Hour is also a MUST. Food is amazing and cheap. Fish tacos the best I ever had. See Pat and Stephen. Awesome bartenders. This place feels like home. Always meet cool people.
