Great place to stay. In the middle of a great tourist area. Reasonable prices and incredible service. Definitely recommended. Very clean, nice bathrooms and an incredible view. My next trip I will definitely be staying here again.

The location is amazing. I stayed here with friends the weekend of the art deco festival, which was awesome. The rooms was SOOO small and hard to get ready in. We stayed in 2 double bed room on the second floor. The double beds seemed smaller than a usual double and sucked to share. The ac is super right next... More

If you're looking for a great spot to be in Miami Beach, this is the place. The Colony Hotel it's located in the heart of Ocean Drive where all things happen. The hotel it self could be better. The elevator poorly works and the walls in the rooms are so thin that you can hear people next door, and the... More

Way better than you could think based on most of the reviews here. Nice to see the most famous icon hotel on South Beach. Yes maybe a bit overpriced but it's one of the best locations if you're into SoBe stuff. Pretty small rooms but everything worked and we saw no critters or any other nasty things.

Very well situated with proximity to beach and restaurants. Our room was small with nowhere to put our suitcases as the small wardrobe area had no light. Bathroom very small with no shelf space or anywhere to put soap, shampoo etc while in shower. However, plentiful hot water with good pressure and good toiletries supplied. TV didn't work properly but... More

Chalk it up to a learning experience because a hotel room on Ocean Drive over the Christmas holidays will by definition, be overpriced. Our experience at the Colony Hotel started with a $25 charge for two domestic beers at the hotel bar while we waited our turn to check in. The room was small with barely enough room to move... More

Pros: - On Ocean Drive, moments from Wet Willies and their great range of frozen, alcoholic slushies. - Clean. Modern furnishings. Cons: - The restaurant staff clearly resented us unloading our car when we arrived and waiting for the valet to return it the following day. Handy hint: if you don't want tourists loitering, don't open a restaurant in a... More

Terrible staff. Reception seems like an horror movie. My check-in was completed 100 minutes after my arrival. Noisy place, bathroom dirty, do not walk without flipflops around the room because the floor is dusty. Our door wasn' t closing from outside, we had to call maintenance to let them fix it. The elevator is the worst thing ever. Old and... More

Only stayed one night as we were going from FL to a cruise. Basic but clean. Right near restaurants but they were all quite expensive so check the prices out first as our basic meal & drinks were not cheap and I felt ripped off.
