First off, this is not a five star hotel. It is at best a two and half star hotel which makes tries really hard to mask its flaws. Please, do not go there expecting to spend lazy days in your room. There is nary a luxurious feature anywhere. Starting with... a. The reception. It is tiny and crowded. The receptionists... More

let me start of with what irritated me the most. the server at the front desk, who is technically the face of the hotel, was arrogant and not sympathetic at all. in his policy phone calls are taken before face to face contact. which concludes that you have to wait for like 15 minutes at the desk while he answers...

Went for the long weekend with my boyfriend a couple of friends. Overall, low cost & great location. Room was enough for 4 people, bathroom was a bit small. Very clean - luckily the room and hotel was better in person then what it appeared on their website. Right in the heart of South Beach, walking distance to numerous clubs,... More

My Sister and I stayed there for 8 days. We also booked the breakfast, but that was a big mistake. The bagels on the breakfasttable were still half frozen, and the fruits weren't fresh. The room was fine and clean. The location of the hotel was perfect. Another advantage was, that we could book tours and stuff in our hotel.... More

Thank you for your feedback. We are pleased that your stay was pleasant. We wish there was a more specific description of the individual who was less than pleasant. This way we could directly address this matter. Nevertheless we will address it in general terms to ensure that this behavior is not repeated. More

My friend and I decided to leave the Keys and hit South Beach for a couple of nights before leaving Florida. We did not have any reservations as this was a spur-of-the moment decision. When we arrived in South Beach we checked with about 6 hotels in the proximity of Ocean Drive (where all the action is) and Espanola Way... More

I really don't know what everyone else is expecting for such a low cost on South Beach but anyhow, here are my two cents. Both my partner and I work for a luxury brand of hotel so I guess our expectations are quite high. However, we found the Beach Plaza to be adequate. Yes, rooms are old, but this is... More

We stayed here on a Friday and Saturday night and thought it was better than expected as it was not our chosen hotel but Travel Republic emailed the day before and canceled our original hotel and put us in this one.

Only stayed one night, booked with Hotwire. Room was huge and newly renovated included a king bed, hida-bed and a kitchen. Furnishings were old and dated. From talking with other guests it sounds that the quality of rooms vastly depends on which building you are in.

Booked a 'standard triple' through an agent. They only have rooms with one or two very small 'double' beds that I wouldn't be able to sleep in with my wife, let alone a friend. The rooms are old and decrepit and the staff are unhelpful.

Thank you for your response. We appreciate this review as it gives us an opportunity to clarify your reservation details. If you booked a triple room, it is for three persons and not three beds. This is a description used by many travel agents and not by the hotel. This hotel has suites, double beds and rooms with king beds.... More
