“Great Location!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

My wife and I spent 4 days on South Beach, and had a great time at Essex House!
Its two blocks from the beach, and right on Collins and 10th; so its right in the middle of the action!
You can walk to either side of south beach within 20 minutes. We were able to walk to all bars, clubs and restaurants with ease.
With the stay at Essex House, you will also get free access to the Clevelander at night.
The staff is very helpful, and will give great restaurant and bar suggestions

I can't say enough wonderful things about the Essex House. We walked in and Domingo greeted us at the door with a welcoming smile and a helpful hand. Our room was very clean and neat, this is the first time I didn't feel the need to wipe everything down. The bed was so comfortable it almost made me wish for a rainy day to lounge and watch tv. Zen Sai, the in house restaurant, was amazing. Zack, our waiter, made some great suggestions based on our likes. I highly recommend the Alaskan King Crab Salad Roll! I can't wait to go back!

Started our vacation with 4 days at the Essex House. The customer service was excellent with Eric taking care of our car and luggage, Carmillo giving us a lovely room in the beautiful courtyard and the handsome bartender taking care of our drink needs (our son said "thank you" for the cokes!). The room was clean and very comfortable. The location was absolutely perfect in South Beach: a few steps to the gorgeous beach, the craziness of Ocean Drive, and the vast shopping choices of boutiques. After leaving and moving on to the next stop on our vacation, I wished that we had stayed the entire week at the Essex House. We now know about this gem of a hotel in South Beach for next year. Thank you, Ian, for making this vacation possible through your generousity. You have made customers and friends for life.

My husband & I stayed @ the Essex House for 4 nights in November 2012. The hotel was truly art deco and we enjoyed our stay here very much. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful to any of our needs. The rooms were on the small side, but very clean & ample. Great location to restaraunts and the beach. We booked through expedia and for $600 for 4 nights, this was great value.

I just came back from a 5 night stay at the Essex House and it was perfect. The great service started when were checked in by Austin. Our first night there we had dinner at their Japanese restaurant which was wonderful. The hotel is perfectly located on Collins Ave. We walked everywhere from the hotel. Our room was very clean and you have the option of having your bedding changed every other day as opposed to everyday. I like that they are aware of the water usage and the environment. Our room had one of the quietist air conditioners! It was so nice to have a quiet hum in the back round while I slept in a comfortable bed.
I highly recommend this hotel for your next stay. You can't beat the location, the price and the excellent service that you receive when staying there. I look forward to my next visit.
Thank you!
Deide R.

Essex House is one of typical art deco hotels in SOBE. I stayed there during SOBE WFF and it was a good hotel choice for that event.
It has a perfect location: two minutes away from the beach, 2 minutes away from shops located on Collins Ave and about 5 minutes away from Lincoln Road. Couldn't expect anything better.

I stayed in a room on 2nd floor with a street view. It was quite small and a bit noisy but very sunny and bright. The hotel building is quite old but the rooms are very clean.Essex House seems to be some kind of a landmark as I saw groups of toursists touring its lobby.

Service at the hotel was great - I can't complain about anything.

I can't say anything about the food as I didn't have a chance to eat anything at the hotel restaurant.
