“Just where you want to be”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2014

Hotels in Miami are expensive or too away from action. Essex House is the best for its nearness to action, peaceful sleep and reasonably priced. It is attached to Clevelander the known party hotel and the keys to Essex House grant you access to Clevelanders rooftop and party zone. Its very walking distance from the beach and perfect for a peaceful sleep away from the thumping music of Clevelander till 4 in the morning. Reception staff is very helpful. Dont think twice. If you have zeroed in on this hotel, you wont be disappointed with your choice.

Room Tip: Choose the rooms on 3rd floor which overlook the street

Stayed the weekend of June 13 thru June 16 2014, I would recommend this hotel right in the heart of everything beach is 2 minutes away . Everyone at this hotel is nice they treat you very well. Juan at the front desk was very nice and helpful. Victor was also helpful, all the staff at this hotel was friendly and helpful the complimentary breakfast was great and happy hour was great! When I visit Miami again I will for sure stay at the Essex hotel.. I love this hotel. Damien and Marcello also were great! Great hotel and staff.my cousin and I enjoyed our stay here. We will be back.

Made the mistake of booking over Memorial Day weekend and was tempted to fly straight back to England! Hotel is yards from Ocean Drive and adjoining its sister hotel, the lively Clevelander. Room was very comfortable, if a little dated, but no complaints here as it was spotless. Staff were all wonderful young men and could not do enough for us. Continental breakfast was great and the bread was just gorgeous! Would definitely stay here again but not before checking the local festivities first!

The location is amazing. Close to nightlife, the beach, shops, and great restaurants. The employees are all wonderful but Marko stood out! Very friendly and warm and goes well above expectations to make your stay delightful. Damian was also very helpful and friendly. It was nice because it's a very relaxed environment, so after a night on the town it was wonderful to come back to peace and quiet. If I visit Miami again, I wouldn't stay anywhere else! This place is a gem

Recently stayed at this hotel with my husband , son , daughter and their partners and must say the location is great practically on ocean drive. The hotel was quite small and friendly. We were on a Bed and Breakfast basis and it was all you needed. No cooked breakfast just cereal, fruit, coffee and muffins. I also thought it was very good value for money when you consider where we were. The sister hotel Cleverlander was right on ocean drive at the back of us and seemed to be party,party,party! It wasn't too noisy and gave us VIP access which was great bcos we were staying in Essex House.
Only thing I could complain about there was a little but of a damp smell in the room but it was very clean so don't know if they have had a problem with dampness in the past.
Loved South Beach , cocktails very expensive . Do the bus tour into Miami , everglades and boat trip well worth it.

The hotel is located near all of the best hotspots on SoBe. The staff was friendly and very knowledgeable about restaurants & clubs. The manager Christian made sure we were taken care of from check in to check out. The beds are comfy, rooms clean overall (my only note was a dirty remote control. eew). The security was a constant at entrances that were for guests only, adding to the feeling of exclusivity while keeping out the riff raff. Lobby employees were also quick to greet us on our way in and made sure we were well accommodated. This hotel is quiet compared to the Clevelander (which is also great place) and because you get access to the Clevelander, you can easily transition from chill to party time! Also ESPN was live broadcasting from there for the HEAT game. Does it get more exciting than that?...yes I'm sure it does! I recommend this hotel for a great beach getaway. PS the sports bar has amazing chicken wings!

Having stayed 5 nights at Essex House over the memorial day weekend we have to pass comment about the hotel and staff. From checking in with Damian Marcello who was excellent over the whole stay, the rest of the staff who were very helpfull, the location of the hotel was spot on, the continental breakfast was way above expectations ,would recommend this hotel to anyone.
