Hi, Stayed at the Colony for four nights, 31st March to 4th April 2014. I was a bit wary as had read some excellent and some terrible reviews. The terrible reviews are ridiculous, moaning about rip off prices at the bar/restaurant next to hotel. Firstly I don't think the Hotel owns these, like many on the strip they are leased.... More

Stayed here for one night at South Beach and the hotel was decent enough considering the location. It is an old hotel, and the rooms could need to be freshened up. Free wifi and the room was clean enough ( not super-clean, but ok.. ). The rooms were decent size and we had two rooms with three persons pr room.... More

Nice and clean, super good location and the best people working there! I had some problems with my luggage (fly company issue) and some other stuff, and the guys from the reception was soooo friendly and helpful. The best receptionists ever! Recommend and would stay there again!

We had a 3 night stay in Miami, South Beach at this hotel. The package we'd taken was room only. The room was large and spacious with a good view in the heart of the south beach area. That was also a drawback, the night life was very noisy disrupting a good nights sleep. Although there was a wardrobe there... More

I visited this hotel for our Honeymoon and the Hotel is in the perfect area of South Beach right across from the Beach on the strip and near all shops, bars and touring locations. Although the rooms are very small they are very clean and comfortable. The staff is wonderful and very helpful. The Front Desk staff is wonderful and... More

It may have been in the Movies but it certainly is no star. Our room was small and had an usual odour, I thought it was original 1930,s polish, my partner thought it smelt like something was dead in the room!!! We shared our room with three other inhabitants whom we had never met before:- Bertie - a very big... More

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights after taking a cruise. The hotel was recommended by a friend. When we got there, they gave us a beautiful suite, however, there was NO HOT WATER. We complained to the hotel staff but they weren't very helpful. The best thing about this hotel is the location. Other than that, you... More

I was absolutely APPALLED by the valet service and the restaurant downstairs. Our car was returned dirtier and dirtier every time by the valet guys. One time it had sunflower seeds on the seats (we don't even eat that), next time it had a gum (CHEWED!!!) stuck to the leader. REALLY?!?!?!? Then the restaurant is a nightmare - super pushy... More

For someone with an interest in art deco architecture, it was a pleasure to stay here (and help pay for the preservation of the building). Hotel is a gem, but it is not modern. In talking to the desk clerk, found out there are regulations preventing any changes that would affect character of the building - which I was glad... More

We took an art deco walking tour which was very fun and interesting. The hotel was in the heart of South... More
