“Great getaway”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013 via mobile

We stayed at Essex this past week and it was a great stay. Perfect location right off Ocean Drive, but away from the crazy traffic. Parking next door to the hotel in the pigeon garage is great also. Only $25/day.

Juliana, Domingo, and Brad were all super helpful and made sure our stay was top notch.

Would defiantly stay here again on our next trip to Miami! Thank you Essex Hotel for helping me make my birthday awesome!

Very nice and clean hotel. Right next door to the legendary Clevelander which hosts awesome parties every night! It's right off ocean drive which is the place to be for parties in Miami, and only a few minutes from south beach. Location for this hotel couldnt be better!

The staff of the hotel is very very friendly, you'll feel right at home! And happy hour every day with free beers and sushi.

If you're going to Miami, this is the place to be!

See Juliana, we promised a review and here of is!

Kind regards,
mister GG!

Eventhough I live in South Beach, I've stayed at this property. The renovation of the hotel is great, and hotel staff are very helpful in guiding guests to restaurants, clubs, and other great nightlife. The hotel is smack-dab in the middle of all the party action, and there is no reason to rent a car.

We recently stayed at the Essex House after our cruise. This small hotel is located in a fabulous area by South Beach and Ocean Drive. Our room was spacious, we were upgraded to a suite. Our bellman, Mikey, couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. He gave us suggestions for restaurants and things to do and see in the area. He made sure our room was perfect for us and delivered our luggage and set it up for us. Thanks, Mikey!

This hotel is in a great location with a very short walk to the beach and restaurants on Ocean Drive. There is a lot of local shopping very close to the hotel. We booked this hotel on hotels.com for a great rate. We were a little apprehensive after staying at their sister hotel the Clevelander in the past. Upon our arrival we were immediately treated extremely well. Our previous reservations were immediately erased. We were greeted by Kim and the Manager Annette. Kim and Annette were very welcoming and even upgraded us to a suite. The room I stayed in was on the ground level (E-1). The room was decorated nicely and was very large. the bathroom and the jacuzzi tub were inviting and very clean. We were surprised by the happy hour which served endless bottles of Presidente, Heineken, red & white wine. They also serve a great sushi that is offered from the japanese restaurant named Zen. This restaurant is located in the lobby. Bella the hospitality host during the happy hour was very friendly and extremely friendly. All the employees we encountered at the hotel were extremely professional and very attentive to our needs. There is a small quiet pool at the hotel. The sister hotel the Clevelander is a great party spot but I wouldn't recommend it to stay. Overall we were very impressed with our stay at the Essex House and would recommend to all!

Small rooms with even smaller bathrooms, the only upside to this hotel is it is one block back from the beach behined the Clevelander. The air conditioning was too noisy and had to be switched off so we could sleep. The staff were friendly and could not be faulted at all. It is quieter than the Clevelander as the party there starts at 12:00 and goes through to 5am then they start washing the party area at 7am.
