The Pros: Comfortable, clean rooms, updated, a little small but this is an original property. Maid service and the service in the restaurant and out by the beach was very good. Cons: Lobby, halls and elevators are very dark, these public spaces are decrepit and the low light is used to mask it. For a real Art Deco restoration go... More

The Raleigh was the perfect hotel for comfort, pool lounging and location. The ocean front rooms are comfortable and have fairly modern facilities for an art deco hotel. It includes free Wi-Fi which was a great bonus. The pool is very well known and it is really cool and fun. Perfect for lounging and taking a refreshing dip. Also if... More

The hotel is a class act. I caters to a well-dressed and well-off clientele, and the staff communicate with the giuests with that specific touch that you find only in small luxury hotels. The lobby area is a perfectly maintained Art Deco style as are the rooms. Someone here wrote that you should excpect a vintage room. That is absolutely... More

Upon check in I felt a different vibe walking into the lobby,clearly it has manage to keep the art deco ambience intact but still having the amenities of a 4star hotel. We had booked an oceanfront room which was really fantastic although the room was small and bathroom tiny for what we paid ! We had drinks by the pool... More

It was my first visit to Miami, a girls' long weekend and my friend and I decided to go a little beyond our budget because we were very taken by the Raleigh's pool. We are so happy that we decided to stay at The Raleigh instead of at any of the other hotels on South Beach. From the moment you... More

I stayed here last weekend with my husband and we had a great stay, although we had a person in the elevator tell us that he wasn't expecting the hotel to be so old without any remodeling. If you need a modern room, this isn't the place for you. Unlike some of the other hotels on Collins that are Art... More

Dear Nouny2011, Thank you kindly for taking the time to review the Raleigh Hotel and posting such lovely pictures. We are so thrilled to hear that you enjoyed the pool and beach service. It is true our hotel has just turned 71 years old and is an original Art Deco landmark. That said, it sounds like you appreciated the beauty... More

You come to the Raleigh for the Art Deco pool and the vibe. It is not as modern, but that's the allure. Once in awhile, we get deals to come here for a few nights and its always consistent. The rooms are small and the bathrooms are somewhat outdated, but you get past all of that because the pool area... More

Stayed at The Raleigh for 4 days, it is a gorgeous hotel in a great location, all of the waiting/bar staff were wonderful especially Ivan, unfortunately we were staying at the same time as Lindsay Lohan so some of the front of house staff became quite rude, telling the paying guests no pictures even parents just taking pictures of their...

Just came back from a four night stay at the Raleigh. Overall it was a very pleasant experience. We stayed in a terrace suite overlooking the pool. Although very simply appointed, the room was clean and spacious. Bed was very comfortable. The hotel itself was lovely especially the pool. Staff was very friendly and accomodating. We had a problem with... More
