“amenable staff, decent room”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2013

five of us in one room was not supposed to be allowed, but they looked the other way, which was really nice. great atmosphere, and everyone was really polite. they had fruit water (a large water container filled with cut fruit) in the lobby -- very refreshing. and everyone on the staff went out of their way to be accomodating. only problems were a little bit of noise (we had a front, street view room) and the valet. in and of itself, the valet was ok (there's no where to park nearby, so you kind of have to use the valet -- there is a garage a block away but it costs as much or more than the valet) but be prepared to wait 30 minutes for your car.

one block from the beach -- good location.

but yes, we would stay here again.

Dear evieao,

Thank you for your recent stay with us and for taking the time to rate us. I was pleased to read about the experience you received and I am happy hear the difference my staff made.

Currently the city of Miami Beach is expanding the sidewalks creating delays with valet. This project has been in the works since June. We can’t wait till it’s over.

The next time your travels bring you to Miami Beach, please feel free to contact me directly at john.perez@winterhavenhotelsobe.com and I personally handle your reservation.

Kind regards,

John
Director Of Front Office

We were in Miami on business and didn't want to stay near the airport and really wanted to take advantage of the warm weather. This was an excellent choice for doing just that. Close enough to Miami to do work, prime location for relaxing after work. On a quiet street one block from the beach. Everything you could want in walking distance. Best staff I've come across in a long time. They were all friendly, helpful and very attentive. Rooms are comfortably furnished and appealing. If I go back to Miami, I am staying here again.

As soon as we arrived we knew that this was a wonderful spot for our overnight before our cruise. The front staff (Elsa?) was super, helped us with restaurants.
We had booked just the basic room so on our way I was a bit apprehensive to be in the "annex" but no need to worry. The room was small, vintage and exactly what you would expect in a truly "Art Deco" hotel. What efficient use of space in our room, and in a very quiet location.
The bar area is delightful and friendly wait staff, the restaurant and pool areas were also very nice.
The location of this hotel was great.Close to the ocean, the nightlife and shopping on Lincoln Road.

Our party rented two rooms at this location and they both were clean and nice. There isn't much room to move around but the bathrooms were quite spacious. This location is on Collins and when you walk out of the hotel, you don't have to worry about a lot of foot traffic. The walk the ocean and all the fun bars where a skip away.

The staff was very friendly and they helped us with everything thing that we needed. They have bottled water available in the rooms and surprisingly it was free. There is also a low noise tolerance so you won't have to worry about late night noise.

There is a very small pool located on this property so it's just good for hanging out. There aren't many lounge chairs so it's first come first serve. The restaurant bar is a typical pricey hotel bar area.

This was a perfect solution and location: walking distance to Lincoln Road and the Convention Center for work, and yet a tropical oasis feeling in the back courtyard for unwinding/recharging afterwards. Ocean Drive just steps away for dinner by the beach. Beautifully serene rooms, fantastic aroma pumped through the air ducts (yes, I asked!) and a very grown-up hideaway feeling.
What this isn't: a beach resort, a place to spend a week, a place for kids.
What this is: an excellent solution if you are on a quick trip to town for activities that are based at the Convention Center or at South Beach. A boutique experience that you can earn/use Marriott points for. Surprisingly quiet, adult and comfortable in the heart of an area known for being none of those things!

Room Tip: I'm not sure there was a fitness center. Ditto the spa.

During Art Basel this is one of the lower priced places in South Beach. Although not cheap, it was good value for money. Small, simple, contemporary rooms. Very clean and quiet at the back. Desk staff very helpful. Recommended.

Don't trust there booking policies. Booked through Marriott and then they will not honor lower rates. Don't bother talking to the manager, treats you like carp and tries to talk over you. Place is one big rip off for super small rooms and sub par service. Continental Breakfast is less good than a Motel 6 buffet. NEVER STAY HERE!!!
