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

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

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.

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

The place is difficult to approach, as it is on Ocean in the heart of cruisers paradise. You must Valet at $25 per day. Rooms are small, but clean. No coffee maker, but there's a fridge. Although it is right in the heart of the action, the rooms are surprisingly quiet, even on the first floor. The restaurant is average.

Great Location ! Rooms clean and OK ! Restaurant - Food is good - a Little expensive, but that is Miami Beach ;-) Holiday in an American Icon ;-) Due to the Location it is a Little noisey - but not this much :-) It would be Great, if the staff at reception could be a little More friendly !
