“Great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

Really good location, just one block from the ocean. The hotel staff were very helpful and it was very clean. The daily happy hour in reception was also an added bonus.

The room was not huge and the bed not the most comfortable I have slept in, but all in all a great stay.

What a wonderful location for the night before we cruised. It is located one block from Ocean Dr on South Beach, where all the action is. All hotel personnel were very helpful and the hotel itself is awesome. We will definatly stay here again.

We had spent forever looking through the reviews of the South Beach hotels and they were all very, very mixed until we found this one. The hotel is in a great location near the beach, near lots of shops and restaurants. The room wasn't overly big for the three of us but it was very clean and comfortable. The hotel wasn't noisy at all, this seemed to be a common problem in other hotel reviews.

The hotel has free wifi as well as a happy hour (=free drinks!) for an hour on week days.

I would definitely recommend staying in the South Beach area rather than downtown Miami if you're going to Miami.

We pre-booked a tour to Key West for a day and it was a highlight of the trip.

Good location right near the beach park. A beautiful lobby welcomes the guest to the hotel. The rooms are smaller, but well kept. The elevator is ancient, but mobile! It is right in the middle of the action, and South Beach is a very walkable area with the Essex a great base to do this. Service at the surrounding restaurants is atrocious, but that isn't the hotel's fault.

Great hotel right in the middle of SoBe action. Whilst this might not be the W or the Setai the staff are excellent, the rooms are pleasant and the happy hour is a treat. The front desk staff were really brilliant and nothing was too much trouble. Will certainly stay here again, particularly for the great price and location and typical Art Deco style.
Just one word of advice, the hotel is right next door to the Clevelander, a busy late night bar and there was some noise but nothing that a few ear plugs or just simply joining the action couldn't cure.

Great location, a block up from the beach. Lots of restaurants just a block away, great, fun entertainment located at sister property next door. Great place to stay for shopping. Food was always very good at all local restaurants. The rooms were clean and the property was well cared for. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The place is historic and their story is very interesting. Would definitely stay again. Food in area was reasonable, just watch out for the drink prices ($18 for a bad bloody Mary!). If we visit again will definitely book here!

Stayed two nights. Great location next to the "party" of South Beach, but still a good night's sleep. Amazing view of Ocean Drive. Serene lobby. Great service and knowledgeable bellman. Didn't get to try the restaurant, bar or pool.
