The location of this art deco hotel is perfect - its location is right on the beach front, in the middle of the art deco area, and an easy stroll to shops/restaurants. Great for people-watching! The hotel itself is rather tired, the rooms rather small, and some basic updating is required but it is fine for a short stay and... More

We stayed at the Colony Hotel last Saturday night (a one-night stay). The location could not be better, and the Art Deco lobby is amazing. We had a mojito at the lobby bar after checking in, and it was delicious! Probably the best we had while in Miami. The bartender informed us that the drinks were 2 for 1 since... More

The Hotel has a great location. It is the center of Ocean Drive. The staff was friendly and offered us a free drink at the bar.The rooms are small, but this is typical of Art Deco hotel on Ocean Drive.The hotel had been renovated and the furniture is new. The rooms include these platform beds that have sharp edges. Additionally,... More

We just returned from a 2 day stay at this hotel for our anniversary. It was our first time staying in South Beach. I am a budget traveller and am used to backpacking when I travel or staying at lower end hotels. However, as I get older, I also begin to appreciate nicer accommodation. This is a lengthy report but... More

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights in Jan 2007. Good Art Deco hotel in a great location on Ocean Drive. The staff on reception seemed friendly. Our room was clean with a modern minimal look, it felt a little small as it had two double beds and not much space to walk about. The bathroom was also small,... More

I just got back from my stay at the Colony in mid January. I picked this hotel (from the many SOBE places) based on reviews posted here and it was a perfect place for me. I paid about $90 per night for my mid-week stay. The room was neat, clean and simple but not boring (low black platform beds, nice... More

Way to go tripadvisor, this hotel was again how customers said it would be. close to what we wanted, clean,safe, and friendly. If you want the people watching experience this is the place to be. We spent two nights at the hotel, the staff was good and friendly, but did not go above and beyond as stated before,but if they... More

I stayed @ the colony hotel for Mother's Day Weekend and it was one of the most memorable weekends that I will cherish. Not only was the hotel staff very helpful but the location was amazing! We had an oceanfront suite with an awsome view of the ocean. When we checked-in we were greeted by a young guy named Fernando... More
