4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

It is right on the strip and when you choose a back-side room also quite. My room was renovated, clean and all ok. The reception and corridor looks old, so the elevator. There is no breakfast and the restaurant/bar at the hotel is not related to them - and it is ripp-off: 12$ for a beer! Overall good and ok... More

The hotel is only good for location. It's right across from the beach and shops are in walking distance. If you're driving and need to park, the valet is$25 and they park your car 7 blocks away. There's a parking garage around the corner that's$20 a day but it's $1 per hour I think. Very expensive I know. The rooms... More

Not worth your time - try somewhere else. The colony doesn't try to impress its guests with comfort and cleanliness they apparently rely on the amazing location of the hotel. Arrived at the Hotel around 5pm to check in. Whoever the guy at the desk was ignored us for about a minute whilst he was on the computer and when... More

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
