4 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 weeks ago

I didn't book it, the best man did. We went for the WMC and I have to say i wasn't expecting much but I was pleasantly surprised. Great staff, banging happy hour and the rooms were pretty good. Awesome art deco building with a great reception area.

I stayed at the Essex hotel 6/27th, pre cruise. We arrived around 11:30 PM, there were several people in the main lobby but no one behind the front desk. After waiting about 15 minutes the front desk agent finally showed up. He was very friendly and efficient but having to stand in front of a front desk this late at night was not a good first impression.

Our room was on the first floor right behind the front desk. Just a few steps up and we were in the room. Room was very nice and well appointed. It was small but plenty of closet space. Flat screen TV, a queen size bed. The room overlooked a courtyard that was nice. Room was very clean with new bedding but overall somewhat small. The bathroom however was the biggest shock. It was extremely small. Only one person at a time unless someone was in the shower. This bathroom was smaller than most cruise ship rooms.

Because we were staying at the Essex we had free access to the Clevelander, so we saved $ 20.00 each to get in. The pool area and bar is always great and we had a great time until we headed to bed around 4:00 AM. The room was quite and away from the pool area so sleeping was no problem.

Each morning they have a complementary continental breakfast in the bar area just off the lobby. Good selection of breads, fruit, and cereal. Lots of coffee and juices to choose form. Very nice set up and friendly staff.

The check out process was quick and the front desk agent very friendly. The best things about this hotel are Location, Location, Location. Price is very good for the staff and location.

Room Tip: First floor facing the courtyard, less noise here.

Stayed at the Essex House Hotel for one week at the end of June, overall my experience was great!! The staff was super friendly and went out of their way to make sure we had an enjoyable stay from the moment we checked in. The location is very close to the beach and and in the middle of where all the action is in South Beach. The hotel is old/historical, but maintained very well and the furnishings all appeared new.

The breakfast was really nice and there were a lot of options, there was also complimentary happy hours which was a nice unexpected bonus. The hotel also offers bottled water and beach towels at the front desk; again complimentary.

I would highly recommend the Essex House Hotel to anyone thinking about making a trip to South Beach.

Had the opportunity to spend another great weekend at the Essex Hotel in SOBE. As always, great room, attentive service and a pleasant experience. You are in the heart of things, yet still able to sleep at night. If I were 20 years younger, I would also consider the sister hotel, the Clevelander. Definitely a place to stay.

The staff is awesome at this hotel. Very courteous and extremely helpful. Location is perfect! Very cozy and quiet. Perfect distance from the beach. We were able to check in early when we arrived and also check out late. They also held our bags until our scheduled flight time and called a cab for us back to the airport. I couldn't ask for better service. Very clean and cute room. We were given a spacious corner room. Best part is no resort fee! I would definitely recommend and stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a corner room. Its bigger

The staff is one of the things that really make this Hotel stand out from the rest. Everyone is helpful and friendly, all the time. One can hardly feel more welcome in a Hotel. The Rooms are a little small, and the AC noisy, but that is the only downside in this place, everything else is top. Location is fantastic, despite the proximity to clubs and Ocean drive it is not at all noisy. Prices are not low, but reasonable for what is offered and where it is. I will most certainly stay here again when in the area.

Fact, this hotel is probably one of the best in Miami. It truly deserves a 4* rating in my opinion. I booked this hotel via Hotwire and was not disappointed. I was travelling with my partner and our 16 year old daughter so were given a suite just off the garden area more or less next door to their sister hotel The Clevelander. We did not hear a sound from such a lively place. The room was well equipped with the most comfortable bed and linen we had stayed in within our 2 week stay. Just wished we had stayed here on our inbound journey as well as outbound. The staff were amazing, not only in the hotel but in the Japanese restaurant adjoining the hotel. The food and house wine are amazing and worth a try on the tasting menu early bird menu which is free to try. South beach is a small walk away as are all the best shops that you can shop til you drop. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone travelling to the South Beach area as it is excellent value for money and bang on location.

Room Tip: the suites in the garden area had 2 double beds and were huge with Jacuzzi bath's.
