very clean and big rooms, friendly staff, the location is great in the middle of Miami SoBe on Ocean Drive. Best location in Miami Beach. It is expensive but worth the price. The hotel is calm and you can sleep at nights, thisinot garantied in the other hotels at Ocean Dr

Room Tip: I had a sweet in the 3th floor. was perfect

I did not get the chance to stay at the hotel (I had to cancel the trip due to stolen passport), but I did experience the fantastic customer service of their staff: they were pleasant to deal with, very personable, understanding of the situation, and extremely helpful with my situation. Outstanding! Thank you Raj (the manager on duty) and the first person I spoke with (I wish I remember your name) for being so helpful and understanding! Whenever I come to MIami, I will definitely stay at this hotel!

I echo the comments below. We have stayed three nights and have no major complaints but it is very noisy and that was a bit of a shock having arrived tired after a long flight from the UK. It is Ocean Drive but if you've never been before, be prepared! Our room, an Oceanfront Signaure King, was very comfortable although there was no information about the hotel at all and we were not shown around...we never found the pool, not that it mattered. We didn't eat at the hotel, choosing to take breakfast at the nearby News Cafe but did notice the pastries, juice, coffee and tea laid out every morning for all residents. Lighting could be improved...it's impossible to see into the safe in the dressing room without a torch and the switches on the bedside lights are so high one has to almost get out of bed to switch them on and off! If you want the South Beach experience, I would certainly recommend The Tides...if you want quiet and relaxing, look elsewhere.

Stayed here during the weekend of 18th November 2012 whilst visiting Miami for the NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Homestead.

The Suite was impeccably appointed with great views of the Beach from the Living Room, and from the Terrace views across Ocean View and back towards downtown Miami.

The room also benefits from two large TVs, Sonos Music system, and Vudu movie streaming facility.

Ultimate relaxation can be further achieved in the part sunken whirlpool bath which commands similar views over South Beach

All staff were very friendly and attentative.

I know there are a few negative comments with regards to noise from club next door.. Yes it is quite loud, but so is virtually every other hotel on Ocean Drive. Come 12am though it does goes quiet.

If you are coming to Ocean Drive for a quiet getaway type break any hotel will be the wrong one if you're in bed before 12am !!

Room Tip: Anything with a sea view will impress

We stayed here for 1 week from 26 October 2012 and had a fantastic holiday! The staff were professional and efficient as well as being really friendly and helpful especially the waitress Jenny and the restaurant manager. The food in the hotel restaurant was of high quality yet good value. Other reviews have commented on the noise in the bar next door but it did not keep us awake at all as it stopped soon after 11 pm, was very entertaining to watch and after all it is Ocean Drive!! The only down side was the pool area which is lovely but too small and shaded. The staff on the beach were great ( Nicky etc) and cant do enough for you. We will definitely be returning.

Room Tip: The ocean view rooms are spacious and luxurious.

We stayed at the Tides between 11 and 15 October. Service was fantastic. Had a couple of problems that were dealt with efficiently. There is a hint of luxury, but a total absence of pretension, about the hotel. We had a beach-facing room and the view was wonderful. The hotel pool offered a tranquil retreat from the bustle of South Beach. The food at the hotel was excellent and we cannot understand why the restaurant was not busier. The Drive Bar next door is noisy, but evening in South Beach is party time! My wife is a light sleeper, but had no difficulty sleeping, and the noise ceased promptly around 11pm while we were there. Other good restaurants and Starbuck's within easy reach. We would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Ocean-facing and middle of the building are best. We had room 803.

We stayed 1 night in this hotel in the beginning of November 2012. The service upon arrival and during the stay was fantastic.
We got a huge corner suite with fantastic furnitures and art.
The room had an iphone charger/radio, dvd-player and TV.
Other amenities: Walkin-closet, big bathroom, sofa, workingtable and chair, minibar with good selection of drinks and snacks.
Price:318 dollar + room tax 41 dollar.

The hotel is situated next to the beach on Ocean drive with a lot of restaurants next door. Complimentary lounges and umbrella on the beach for hotel guests.

Breakfast is not included but coffee and croissants/jam is complimentary every morning in the reception.

Complaints: the hotel is situated next to a bar that is quite popular so there was quite much noise early evening/beginning of the night.
The hotel could also need some new wallpaper some places, in the room and hallway (water damages).
