“Potential.......”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

My husband and I stayed here during the Christmas & New Year's Holiday season on two seperate occasions. The downtown location is superb and the pics are very accurate; very nice hotel. The king size rooms are small as were the bathrooms. But, that's not a really big deal as the rooms are very clean, comfortable & classy; the bayside view is great. Unfortunately, the front desk staff are below average 4 this hotel. Most of them are not welcoming or friendly. When we went to check-in to the hotel a little after 3:00pm, we were advised check in is not until 4:00pm. But, we saw other guests being checked in. Later to find out, the king beds were not available, but we were not even offered a double as an option. We we finally checked in at 4:00pm, a new front desk staff had arrived. Thank goodness we met Jose as he is in a class all by himself, because he is definitely "ABOVE" average; he was superb!! He even remembered us when we checked backed into the hotel 4 days later (we were already pre-paid). Hence, the 4 star rating was all do to Jose's customer service; seriously. I experienced an unpleasant encounter with one of the bar attendants at the Tavern and he immediately remied that situation. Note to GM: maybe you can have Jose train the front desk staff..... The valet service were friendly and helpful as well as the maid staff. Considering this was a holiday season, you would expect the staff to be at least welcoming, if not cheerful. Even though it was a busy time, an unwelcoming & unfriendly staff is still unexceptable. We travel very frequently and would possibly stay here again because the location is absolutely great. Hopefully the next time, the service of all of the front desk & tavern staff will be too.

Room Tip: King size rooms are much smaller than double beds.

This hotel is an excellent value with the class and comfort you'd expect. It is also a perfect location if you're attending an event at the Convention Centre, Intercontinental Hotel, American Airlines Center for a Heat game and more.

We had five rooms booked here for two nights prior to a cruise, we could not have been more pleased.
After reading many reviews I was starting to panic about our "win" of these rooms on Priceline. I am happy to say that panic was unwarranted! The rooms although not huge are average size, not tiny as many reviews stated. Yes the washrooms were tiny but had everything we needed. Although review after review complained of the slow elevator service, I can honestly say we never experienced a problem.
The service at this hotel could not be beat!! From the moment we walked into the lobby until the moment we left in the shuttle for the cruise port the staff we just simply amazing! Going above and beyond even sending the shuttle to collect us in South Beach one night to bring us back to the hotel . We want to send a special shout out to Freddy, Stanley and David ! Thank you Yve hotel and staff for making the start of our vacation spectacular !

We have just returned from Miami after staying at Yve pre and post cruise. Once again we were not disappointed. Have stayed here several times and cannot fault it. Location is excellent and staff are welcoming. Thanks again to David who welcomed us back and also Steven who assisted us in keeping our luggage until check in time. Thanks to Chelsea at reception also. we look forward to our next visit.

Room Tip: Bayside view is great. You can see cruise ships arriving and departing..

Not at all accommodating. Blatant disregard for guests. I will NEVER stay there again nor would I recommend it. Service is slow. Some staff can be rude. If it weren't a busy time I would have gone to another hotel but everything else was booked.

We were "upgraded" to a corner room;) The room was small, noisy, and the bathroom was so small, half the size of a cruise cabin bathroom, only room to stand up, 6 feet square if that much! Elevator, only one and very small. This hotel is like a European old hotel, don't waist your $$. On the Pro side, the staff was very nice and the hotel was clean.

This is a good hotel for a downtown Miami/pre-cruise stay. Directly across from Bayside Marketplace and next door to a CVS for last minute items. Stayed in a double bed room which was roomier than expected. The bathroom is a little tight but clean/manageable. The elevator is VERY busy during check out. Upon check-in, informed front desk clerk (Angie) that we were celebrating a milestone birthday and she provided free drink and breakfast vouchers. Breakfast was buffet style. It was good but food could have been warmer. I would definitely stay at YVE again for the price and location. My room was cleaner and more comfortable than my previous stay at the Intercontinental. Note: the walls are thin because I could hear running water from another room but it wasn't unbearable. There's a shuttle to cruise port for $6/person but the taxi ride was $12 total and faster.

Room Tip: Recommend double bed room as they are roomier than King Size bedrooms. Our window overlooked the cr...
