I stayed at the Colony Hotel in Miami On July 23, 2015. This was for a pit stop before a trip to Panama. My experience was awesome! Carlos at the front desk was very friendly and welcoming. My friend and I arrived earlier than check in, so we had to store our luggage in the front area, which was ok... More

One of the most iconic hotels in Miami due to it's postcard perfect location. We stopped by for a late dinner one evening, and had a pretty average experience. The waiting staff were very pushy, but we wanted to eat here anyway so didn't need much convincing to come in. They were friendly enough, but it was pretty awkward and... More

I stayed one night with some friends as we were catching the flight first thing in the morning. The location is great, you have all kind of restaurants at waling distance, Mango's (tourist trap for excellence) is a block away. On the negative side, the hotel is old, service is not so good, drinks in the bar are expensive, there... More

Hotel was ok but it needs a few improvements. Not saying that the staff is rude, they're not, but they could be more courteous to guests. Maybe they're used to a much younger crowd that doesn't really care but when we spend our money at a hotel we want to be treated a bit special. Money is not easy to... More

I met friends for one night and was pleasantly surprised at this hotel with an old Florida feeling. It's quirky, lively, smallish, not the average American hotel. The price was just over $100 for the night for a location right on South Beach! The room had beautiful dark flooring and fully tiled bathroom, very clean but older. You may have... More
