“Great location!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

Great hotel in a great location on Ocean Drive! We were able walk/bike everywhere.
The hotel staff were definitely 5 star - always available to help and very friendly! I'm rating this as excellent due to we had great deal through Hotwire...we were upgraded to a corner room which was huge! Most of what everyone reported about room/pool are correct, however minor complaints that are def out weighed by positives. Outside noise always stopped about 11...expected if on Ocean drive. If looking for super posh upscale/quieter stay at one of the mega hotels on Collins. We did not eat at the restaurant due to reviews...not a big deal as tons of choices nearby.

Room Tip: Corner rooms are extra large

This was our 3rd visit to The Tides. We love the location and property itself. The hotel staff is very friendly and helpful. Housekeeping did a great job in our room. The furnishing in the public areas of the hotel are a bit tired. Since our visit last spring, they have discontinued morning coffee and pastry service.
They have also discontinued staffing at the pool. By mid day, no clean towels and no beverage service all day.

We had three meals at the restaurant. One good, two average, all over priced. But there are some great places within walking distance on Collins and Washington that are more reasonably priced. Because of the great location and hotel service we will be back, but would love to see some sprucing up.

What an AMAZING trip. It was my first time to Miami and the Tides provided such an amazing experience I am sure to return to this property. The staff were so accommodating and friendly from the second we stepped out of our cab to the time we left. The rooms are quite large, spacious and spotless! I also enjoyed the convenience of the beach across the street and the cabanas that provided complimentary beach chairs, towels and umbrellas. There are PLENTY of shops and restaurants nearby. This hotel is great for an escape from the liveliness of the areas nearby. You can truly relax! Thank you for such a great time!!

Room Tip: I had a corner room on a higher floor which I loved for more light. Also away form the elevator.

Fantastic hotel! The staff is the most courteous and professional I've ever encountered. When we arrived, they had our booking paperwork printed already and our room keys ready to go. When we checked out, they asked if I needed a taxi to the airport before I could even ask for one. It seemed like they were anticipating my needs at every turn - a true mark of professionalism!

The rooms are HUGE, elegant, and a nice oasis from the pastel madness of South Beach. They do get a bit of street noise, but that quiets down around 11:00 pm, and we never heard our neighbors.

My only regret is that we didn't stay long enough (just for an overnight layover) to take advantage of the two beach chairs they had reserved for us. I'd definitely come back, especially if I had more time to take advantage of all the thoughtful, luxurious touches this hotel has!

We want to give a shout-out to Maia, hostess of The Tides' excellent terrace restaurant and Gene our waiter; Carlos, the valet; Julie of the Front Desk; and Maria Cabrerra, Housekeeping Manager for their attention to our every request and to the staff for their warm hospitality. We enjoyed the hotel's amenities (pool, beach chairs, etc.), and dining on the terrace ensured us a close up of the parade of visitors and residents, and the Atlantic- spectacular! A bit pricey, but definitely upscale, worth the cost for its on-the-beach location and proximity to the "sights" especially SoBe's nightly promenade. We had a great time and plan to return.

Room Tip: Our 6th floor room overlooked the ocean with a 180 degree view beautifully framed in the window, lik...
