“I plan to return to the Alexander Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

My wife and I enjoyed our stay in the Alexander Hotel. The staff are very helpful and friendly. The grounds are conducive for relaxing. The hotel is on the ocean so one walks only a short distance to the beach. The Hotel is a short taxi ride or bicycle ride to South Beach. A short distance north are restaurants and shops also. The rooms are suites and therefore very spacious. We plan to return.

Thank you for the nice comments about our hotel! I'm glad you enjoyed our amenities and I'm happy to hear our staff was able to take care of you. One the best features of our hotel is its ideal location, right in the middle of Miami Beach, short drive from South Beach with its excellent dining and attractions.
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review and sharing your comments with others.
We look forward to your future stay with us.

Sincerely

Mariela

We've been coming to this place for the last 8 years and finally I decided to write a review after spending 2 weeks there this Christmas/New Year. The reason we keep returning is because we have family that live in the area, we love the location and the entire Miami scene in general.

This hotel/condo is located directly on the beach, about a 10 minutes drive to South Beach and a 15 minutes walk to a fantastic boardwalk. The condo we always rent is beautiful, modern and spacious, has a full kitchen, dining area, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and accomodates up to 6 people. Although we've had friends who also rented condos at the Alexander and in comparison there accomodations have been standard.

There are 2 pools. One that no one uses during Christmas because it is icy cold and one heated pool on the upper deck which is usually over crowded. Our family enjoys spending the day on the beach. What we like about this resort is that their beach area is not as busy and over crowded as the neighbouring higher end Eden Roc & Fontaine Bleau hotels which are comparitively much more expensive to stay at.

The front desk/pool bar service is average, although even the higher end hotels in the area that we stayed at don't offer better service. Their valet parking is excellent and offers a very speedy service which is ideal for a family on the go. The building and loby is dated and in need of renovations. We went to Shulas restaurant in the hotel for the first and last time. It is completely over priced for the service & food and there are better restaurant options in the area.

Bottom line if you compare the Alexander Miami Beach to others hotels in the area you get much better value.

Attention was very pleasant ,staff, very kind and servicial. The suite, with two bedrooms and two bathrooms, spacious closets and fully equipped kitchen, living room and dining room comfortable
Very good access to the beach and 3 swimming pools with a bar nearby.
Shula's restaurant is excellent
Excellent location, is near southbeach, but far enough away to be quiet.

We arrived late on Thursday, February 28th, 2013. We were greeted by extremely helpful and friendly hotel staff as well as the most elegant lobby with its beautiful wide winding staircase. Our suite was absolutely gorgeous. The privately owned suite had two attractively decorated bedrooms both with flat screen TV's, two full baths - the master bath had two chocolate brown sinks, shower, hot tub and even a beday. The living room/dining areas were luxurious. Since we were on the 16th floor, the view of the ocean was absolutely breath taking. I have travelled extensively throughout the Caribbean and have never had such a beautiful view of the ocean. We even had two balconies. Our family enjoyed breakfast every morning at The Garden Terrace Restaurant in the hotel. Again we were greeted with friendly hotel staff. Our sons thought the hot breakfast and florida orange juice were great. My husband and I especially enjoyed the fresh fruit. The view of the Ocean was beautiful even from our breakfast table. The two swimming pools were well-maintained and attractive and within just a few steps from the pool area, you arrive at the white sands and sea of Miami Beach. The boardwalk is a short walk down the beach. We had a pleasant walk to South Beach along that boardwalk. It was our first time to Miami Beach. We had such a great experience at The Alexander All Suites Ocean Front Resort that we can't wait to go back!

This place is amazing. Very spacious. Great pools and tiki bar with great drinks. Onsite Shula's restaurant was excellent as well. Awesome beach. Very close to South Beach but far enough to be able to relax.
