“Perfect Staycation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

Most times when on a staycation a hotel is hard to impress a local. Not with the Daddy O, from the moment I opened the door and was greeted with a smile, to our room service and concierge services everything was done quickly and with a smile on their face. The continental breakfast was a great bonus to the environment and if your in the mood for a good steak, The Palm is adjacent to the hotel and is excellent! I would definitely stay here again.

They say that the third time is a charm. Well they were right. We returned for our third trip to Daddy O's in mid December. What to say ... First of all the staff once again did a yeoman's job.
We had made a room request when booking our reservation and Courtney and Elaine did everything in there power to accommodate that request. Thank you.
The rooms were great, beds and pillows were comfortable, high quality linen, a/c quiet and a fridge in each room was very convenient. The breakfasts were more than enough to get a start each day. (Starbucks Coffee, wow) The location is perfect for walking to restaurants from the prestigious Palm, literally next door, to the Orlando Grill for great breakfast and lunch just a few blocks away. Thanks to Courtney for that wonderful suggestion.
Shopping at Bal Harbor Mall is a shoppers dream come true, although a bit humbling.
If you wish to walk to the beach, it's a short walk to the beach. When we took our daily trip to Haulover Beach the hotel provided beach towels, chairs and umbrella. How thoughtful.
Again, location is great as one night it was a short drive to Lincoln Road to shop and dine. The next night Hollywood Beach (great fun). Another night shopping Los Olas section of Fort Lauderdale.
We are totally in love with Daddy O and Bal Harbor and are hoping to return as soon as possible.

We recently stayed for 2 nights at the Daddy O near Surfside FL. Very nice experience, service was friendly and prompt. Very accommadating! Parking was not a problem and there were plenty of resturaunts within walking distance. The room was not huge but more than adequate for our needs. Would stay there again and recommend to our friends.

Room Tip: ask for quiet room if that is important to you

I helped organize about twenty world class lecturers and their spouses stay for about 4 nights in order to attend a conference nearby. We felt absolutely comfortable and at home. All the members of the staff were so congenial and helpful that they often helped before we could even ask for help. They gracefully catered to our special needs, and we thank them.

Room Tip: We were spread out in different parts of the hotel, but nobody complained.

Liked the hotel. They don't overcharge for parking. Good location
Room very comfortable
I had read bad reviews about the noise and the thin walls. Don't know if I was in a good room, or on a lucky day/night, but did not experience much of that, if any.
No complaint whatsoever from me.
Nice trendy decor, very clean, liked the Keurig in the room although I would have liked a stronger coffee blend (I am French).
Restaurant next door is very nice, but very pricey (not owned by the hotel)

My Mom and I were coming off a Carnival cruise, and stayed here so we could spend an extra day in Miami. I was very pleased and impressed with this hotel! The room was great and the location was just a few blocks from the beach.

The only downside, was that the hotel had mostly expensive restaurants in the immediate area. We wanted something reasonable for dinner, so we just ordered Italian delivery from Moncheese Pizza. All in all, though, I will definitely stay here again!
