My experience at SLS was so fantastic that it prompted me to create a username and write a review for the tripadvisor website. Between the incredible staff, the amenities, and the overall experience, SLS is, without question, the premier place to stay during a visit to South Beach.
My girlfriend and I decided to go to Miami for the weekend, and thought we had been to South Beach together before, we had never stayed at SLS. Now, I couldn't imagine a trip to Miami without staying anywhere else. Upon arriving we spoke to a young woman by the name of Yesmin (spelling?) who was incredibly accommodating. Not only was she pleasant and efficient with her duties as an employee, she took additional time to give us a "lay of the land," something that made us both feel right at home.
As a hotel in the Art Deco district of Miami, one may expect to have limited space in the rented; however, our room at SLS was ideal. The decor was wonderful, as was the view of the ocean. There were even mirrors on the ceiling that were a great touch!
Hyde Beach in the back of the hotel lived up to its reputation. Complete with a stylish, informative, and outgoing staff, the experience poolside was even that much better. There was a young woman, who's name now escapes me, but she was in her twenties and was from Montreal - she served us poolside and recommended a fruit platter that turned out to be absolutely delicious! Overall, a tremendous time with easy access to actual South Beach.
At night, the back bar juxtaposed very nicely with the backdrop of the pool and the dining area. It is hard to envision yourself anywhere better when sipping on a drink there at SLS, surrounded by a picturesque Miami ambiance.
Late night breakfast in the wee hours of the morning was both delicious and delivered in a timely manner. Additionally, the housekeeping staff was incredibly courteous and kind to restock a few requests for waters. Not to mention the work they did tidying up our room.
In the crazy way that things come full circle, as we were preparing to head to the airport early on Sunday morning, Yesmin (again, the spelling but the name itself stands out!) was working the front desk and was as friendly as she was a few days before. My girlfriend and I have often joked the last few weeks that she is the face we associate with SLS!
We were certainly sad to leave, but we both feel quite comfortable highly recommending SLS, and everything it has to offer, to anyone looking to spend time in South Beach...

Dear Sean K we really appreciate you taking the time review SLS south beach. Thank you for your kind words about Yasmin she is truly a great asset to the hotel. In south beach there are many boutique hotels that offer great pools and restaurants o. With this being said, besides our numerous amenities we strive to make the difference between us and the competition with our amazing staff and the levels of service. We take great pride in our staff members and are always very pleased when individuals are mentioned in reviews. We look forward to welcoming you back to the hotel in the near future.
