“Charmed by the Staff at the SLS on Collins!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2014

I am a frequent traveler to Miami for my business.
This year, we booked the SLS for the work week.
EVERYONE there was helpful and genuinely friendly.
Special shout out to Vicky at the Concierge desk.
Her attention to detail made my life a lot easier.

Just a quick caveat to first time South Beach Hotel customers..This is a Miami Landmark Boutique Hotel. Its not the Hampton in Dubuque! The rooms are very "cozy".

See you in a few months SLS!

Corporate sponsored trip to SLS-very attentive staff but make sure you bring your wallet-morning buffet-small and I mean small yogurt,glass of OJ,coffee and bottle of sparkling water-$55.00 not really a great buffet choice-eggs benedict for two juice coffee next day $85
Nice pool but very pricey all around-but then again it is South Beach

Good location on beach but rooms very small-no closet

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review on SLS Hotel South Beach, your feedback is truly appreciated. We take great pride in our staff, it is always nice to hear good things about them. We are constantly training the staff on the importance on exceptional customer service and the art or true hospitality. With so many boutique hotels to choose from in South Beach, great service is how we try to separate ourselves from the competition. We look forward to welcoming you back to the hotel soon.

From the lambo's parked outside to the many checkpoints to get in this is without doubt one of the most exclusive clubs/hotels in Miami. We had booked beforehand a double cabana type set up which for 34 of us cost just about 8000 dollars and from there the priced were silly. 400 dollars for a 30 dollar bottle of vodka but if the number of NFL superstars and Eva Longoria are anything to go by it must be the place to be. Simply stunning.

Without question, my wife and I were blown away by the level of attentiveness and professionalism exhibited by the staff at the SLS Miami Beach (so much so that we have finally broken down, opened a tripadvisor account and committed to writing our first review). From the email we received from the concierge a week before arriving at the hotel, to the additional accommodation afforded my pregnant wife by the front desk staff, to the cleanliness and oasis like environment of our guest room, the hotel poos and common areas, to the service provided poolside, beachside, and in the hotel bars, we were extremely impressed by everything this hotel had to offer. Having traveled extensively throughout North America, Europe and Asia, we are happy to say that our experience with this hotel is matched by only two or three other hotels/resorts that we have stayed with worldwide. My wife and will I look forward to returning to the SLS in the near future!

My husband and I came from LA and spent few days at the SLS South Beach, Our room was nice but a little small,FD Team was really welcoming, The pool area was enjoyable but we prefer from far the beach,

We had the great opportunity to have dinner at the restaurant Bazaar, The food was excellent, I loved the Ceviche Tuna Avocado, the drinks were also excellent, I loved the Jasmin Margarita and Our server Oscar, He was incredibly nice, smiling and helpful, We asked him to choose most of our dishes and it was a success, I remember as Well Our lovely Hostess, Anna, She advise us on a fun Place to go after dinner, we had a drink at the Standard, It was great and finally we Finished the night at The Baoli, Great recommendation, Gracias Anna, we had a great night,

We will definitely come back.. I am already craving the Key Lime Pie,


Bazaar is just great,

This place is a joke, rooms are the size of closets. No place has worst room service, staff is rude and inattentive to hotel guest needs. Elevator takes forever to take you up to your room. Will never stay again at this overpriced wanna be five star hotel.

I stayed here for a night with my husband as a quick getaway. We booked it through our travel agent who is affiliated with Virtuoso - because of this we received a free upgrade to an ocean view room. The room was well furnished - but very small with no closet. The bathroom was tiny, but the shower for 2 was amazing with the best rain shower head. The windows for the ocean are small and there is not a balcony, but the bed and linens were very nice. Our room included the breakfast buffet which was amazing! The pool was great with people sipping cocktails. The beach was wonderful with warm, blue water. Bring your sneakers so you can walk along the boardwalk which is in front of hotel - very ideal location. We really enjoyed our stay here!

Thank you for your honest review on SLS Hotel South Beach, the feedback is greatly appreciated. I agree with you we do not have the biggest rooms on the beach, however we do offer some villas and suites that have significantly more room. I am glad that you enjoyed your stay and hope to welcome you back to the hotel in the near future so that you can experience one of our other room types.
