We spent the weekend in South Beach recently and booked The Essex House after having walked through it on an earlier trip. From the moment we walked in, we were greeted warmly by every staff member we saw. The front desk staff were very nice and upgraded us to a suite (we had booked a king room). Our room was very large with a sitting area which was nice. After we discovered that the air conditioning wasn't working well in our room, we were immediately moved to a new suite. There is a complimentary guest happy hour in the bar from 4:30-5:30 every day - go early! They offer free sushi and other appetizers but when they run out, they run out. They also have drink and appetizers specials during happy hour which is from 4:00-7:00 every evening. The bartenders are AMAZING! Julio, Jose and Kevin all go out of their way to make happy hour HAPPY. They're great guys and we really enjoyed hanging out in the bar with them. There are a lot of great places to eat within a short walk. For good lattes and Italian coffee, try Pinocchio on 8th Street which is just 2 blocks away. And for great Cuban food, go to Puerto Sagua which is 3 or 4 blocks up Collins Avenue (towards 5th Avenue). Oh and another plus...the front desk has free bottled waters and beach towels for hotel guests, you just have to ask. I'd definitely stay here again.
