My friend and I booked this hotel, first and foremost because of the location in South Beach, and of course because we were interested in seeing the art deco district, up close and personal. We were excited, upon driving up and down Ocean Blvd., to feel the energy of this unique neighborhood, and after finally getting a grip on the... More

I chose this hotel because it always shows up in all the South Beach commercials. It was exactly what I expected. This hotel is in the center of everything ---easy to walk to all of south beach shopping and clubs. The beds were very comfortable, and everything smelled clean, crisp and fresh. It was super hot in Miami, and we... More

I just stayed with my husband. Had a great time, you'll love this place if you love looking at the ocean and I'd suggest getting an oceanview room as we did! We didn't try the room service but found lots of great restaurants all around the block. The shopping is one street over on Collins and we got to just... More

I stayed in this hotel for three days. I was put into the third floor. The elevator was broken and they do not have a bell hop. Yes, that means we were on our own with the luggage. Additionally there was the biggest cockaroach I've ever seen in my life in the bathroom. The staff was very nonchalant about the... More

My boyfriend recently suprised me with a getaway to Miami (we live in Mississippi so it was a great treat!!) I was very satisfied with the Colony. The hotel has a great little cafe in it and the restaurant staff always held the doors for me, the food there was great, we got room service most days and they were... More

My boyfriend and I spent three days at the Colony and very much enjoyed our stay. The rooms are small which is typical of an art deco hotel but were clean and well maintained. The rooms are nicely decorated with low platform beds. There is a restaurant and bar on sight which provide and opportunity to soak up the atmosphere... More

The place is GREAT!!!! The Hotel stuff is very friendly, kind and super professional. My room was PERFECT, very clean, spacious, with a spectacular ocean view & with a “plasma TV”. The location is AWESOME, just across the ocean & surrounded with excellent restaurants. I’ll definitely return and recommended to all my family and friends.

My room was immaculant, the staff was friendly, and helpfull. There is a restaurant and bar in the property, very convinient.... More
