I needed to stay one night in Miami and ended up choosing The Colony Hotel. Excellent localization: in front of Miami Beach. No problems with the reception, simple and polite. My room was on the first floor, so I cannot talk about the elevator. One block from the hotel there is a big garage building. Nice and cheaper than the... More

The hotel is right in the middle of the busy art deco district and excellent for getting to see the area. It looks good from the outside but is very ordinary in he rooms. They are clean and tidy but uninspired

Let me start with the good. The hotel is in a great location in the heart of South Beach on Ocean Drive. Ocean Drive can get crazy noisy at night, almost all night. It is located directly across the street from the beach and in the middle of all of the action. If you are headed to South Beach to... More

The Colony Hotel is an Art Deco era hotel on Ocean Drive in Miami Beach. We stayed for three nights during the recent Art Deco Festival in January, but were not wildly impressed. Bathroom and bedroom were clean and neat, and the A/C worked well enough. The reception desk clerks were courteous and helpful, for as much as they could... More

Great size for South beach ocean front hotel. Big TV too. Beds are a bit hard and can feel the springs. Full closet was nice and bath is decent. Shower is beautiful but not very practical. Nice rainfall shower head but no handheld if you don't want your hair wet. There are no places to put anything either. Had to... More

This hotel is all about location. It is right in the middle of the Art Deco District on Ocean Drive. It was built in 1939 so if you looking for a modern hotel, this isn't for you. My wife and I got room 200 which is their ocean view room. The bed was comfy and the bathroom was small but... More

Me and a friend stayed in early November and had a great time. For young people this is a great hotel, prime location and really nice area. Originally we were on the ground floor but after finding a few creepy crawlies we asked to move upstairs and the staff were more then happy to help us with that. Unless you... More

We were there right after our cruise...first, our room was next to a BUNCH of Arab kids that were smoking in their room and clearly very drunk....second, they decided to cook with propane whatever it was they were smoking (I am assuming it was marijuana) that was scary enough - we found that out after the fact....and they were loud...
