Had a great 3 night stay at the hotel. Our room was located at the rear of the hotel which was a little noisy. Dumpsters were emptied early in the morning. The rooms was a nice size, bathroom a little small but, this is a classic Art Deco hotel. Wifi at the rear of the hotel was hopeless Bed was... More

Checked out of this hotel earlier today, stayed for two nights. Checked in late Friday night and it was quick and effortless. Room was small but was only used for sleeping and showering. The only thing I would give less stars on would be the shower curtain did not keep the water from off of the floor, other than that... More

I can not speak for the condition of the hotel or the quality of a stay there; I had a reservation but had to cancel it. However, that process was so unbelievably difficult, I felt compelled to write. After cancelling my reservation online a week earlier, I called the hotel about a $183 charge on my credit card. The phone... More

Absolutely loved the location of this place! Ubers were only $2-6 from everything you really need (unless you're flying in from FLL..thats like a $35 Uber ride). But the hotel room was very very small and the view is terrible! So if you can, get the Oceanview Suite, I never saw it inside but I'm sure it was way nicer... More

TravelChapters we value your review, and would like to thank you for sharing it! The location of Colony Hotel is unbeatable. We are a boutique hotel, therefore our rooms are a bit smaller then your average hotel room. The ocean view rooms are great and have a lovely view of Ocean Drive. Please come back and give us another chance.... More

this hotel is not suitable actually really as adequate accommodation nowadays, behind the shining facade the hotel has stopped in the age of the backpack tourists in Miami South Beach – i.e. in 80 he years. small poorly soundproofed room, very old bath with regular beetle visit, everything incurred, if man/woman looks behind the Venetian blinds he/she knows at the...

Let me first say that I am a picky traveler who expects cleanliness, comfort, and service when I travel... with that said; here is my review. I just returned from my stay at the Colony Hotel south beach. I was there March 7-10. I was skeptical to book this hotel at first, because of all the sketchy reviews I read... More

I've chosen this Hotel because it is a Legend in Miami Beach. My stay of 10 days was really good, the room was confortable (Double sized bed, fan, air conditioning, flat 46" TV or bigger, big minibar). I was in room 313, on the upper floor in the corner. The Hotel is located in the Hearth of Ocean Drive's nightlife... More

Stayed here the night before our family cruise. The location is awesome, right across the street from South Beach and close to many shops and restaurants. We arrived about 5 P.M. and all 5 couples were in their room within minutes. The entrance is very strange, having to walk through the restaurant to get to the small reception desk. The... More

Dear SeetheParks7, We value the time it takes our guests to share their feedback, whether it be positive or negative. The location of our hotel is definitely prime.

Place is loud, surrounded by bad places to eat, the elevator looks to be from the 60s. The room is fine but our floor had not been swept. Bathroom is tiny. Rooms were right on Ocean which means you can hear people screaming and partying all night. If you are over 24, pass.

Yikes G B, what a frightening review and experience you recently had with us! The hotels on Ocean Drive do seem to experience more noise. We are located right on the strip. If you are looking for a more quiet and secluded stay, we are not the place for you. Scarlett Mona More

i stayed at the Colony Hotel a few years ago and since then they have renovated it and spruced the hotel up. Nice green colors in the room. Yes the rooms are small but you don't go to South Beach Miami to stay in your room. It is located in the heart of the Art Deco district on Ocean Drive.... More
