“Beautiful hotel/Attentive Staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2014

This is my first time staying at Dream South Beach and I have to say that from start to finish my stay was exceptional. I checked in with Jessica, who was very welcoming and made the check-in process a breeze. The hotel was very clean and stylish. I stayed in the deluxe king room and it was comfortable and well decorated and not to mention, had a nice selection of mini bar items. The Naked Taco restaurant in the Tudor building was very trendy and had very fresh food from their tacos to their tasty guacamole. I went to the roof top pool in the morning and had great service from the pool attendants and the high bar was nice to grab a nice cocktail. Thanks to the staff and beautiful property I had a wonderful stay.

My boyfriend and I stayed for two nights.The price is right and the hotel was charming. Loved the boutique lighting and the shower. One thing to note: the King size bed room can accommodate two people tops and is safe to say for couples only.

I went to Ultra Music Festival 2014 with my girlfriend, we booked this hotel for 1 night after the festival to cool down and relax from the chaos. The front lobby was very modern chic and laidback. The front desk was very nice at helping us with our luggage and checking us into our room. Although there was a 15-20 minute wait, the staff there were pretty friendly and conversational so the time passed quick. There is a small bar there in the lobby and the bartenders are usually there, or nearby. They're pretty down to earth people and will help you pick out some good places in south beach.

I have to point out that walking down the hallway to our room felt like we were walking into a spaceship. The room felt small at first, but after we got used to it the feeling of the room was as if everything had a purpose. The iPad was definately a plus, being able to control the room was nice. Although, I did try to manually open the curtains which was a mistake since it was too controlled by the iPad so trying to manually open the curtains caused it to un-sync with the chain. It wasn't bad we just called the front desk. Playing with the light settings and bathroom settings is fun, nothing that I would deem necessary to the stay but still a nice feature nonetheless.

The only problem I would point out is that there were drunk people on the streets right outside our window talking until 6am. But then again it's not really the fault of the hotel, just have to expect that in south beach I guess. Anywho, it was a great stay, I would definitely recommend this hotel to anybody who doesn't mind paying a little extra (worth the value, no worries) to stay in a really nice modern hotel.

Great location close to the beach and oceandrive, nice staff, very good concierge service.
Rooms are corky. I like the design. Remotes are a bit difficult to use.
Parking is a bit expensif.
Very good food in the restaurant.
Will return here to end my trip

We were returning guests at Dream Hotel. First check-in went well. Second Check-in not so great. Rooftop pool employees accuse you of loitering. We told them about our issue with them accusing us as street walkers basically (which was surprising because we look nothing like that) and they really did not care. It seemed once you payed they no longer cared about your stay. When you checkout they surprise you with charges... There are much better hotels in South Beach.

Room Tip: Rooms are ALL noisy.. it is South Beach though, so i didn't mind. I wouldn't recommend this...

Dear vincent l,

It is distressing to hear that you experienced such an issue that made such a negative impact on your stay. I hope that you will accept my apologies for something that is not at all reflective of the high standards that we hold ourselves to here at Dream. Although I cannot go back and erase this issue from occurring in the first place, it has been brought to the immediate attention of the appropriate manager for further investigation, and also so that he might be able to contact you directly. I am fully confident that with further dialogue between each of you, an understanding and resolution can be achieved.

This boutique hotel was great! The staff were so helpful. The concierge suggested some great places to dine nearby and the bellman were quick to please. The room was beautiful! I had an amazing view of Collins Avenue and the swanky décor was what you would expect in South Beach. I stayed here for work. I got a rate mid week of $117 a night. That is insane. I would never guess a rate to be so low for the location and the atmosphere. The restaurant and bar next door are so convenient. The margaritas were so-so, but the food and wait staff were great! I highly recommend this hotel. It's located near everything and the small resort fee they tack on is well worth it....they have a section on the beach where the wait-staff set up a towel, chairs, and umbrellas for you. It definitely is a gem in South Beach!

Green Features: They are very conscious of water conservation and ask that you would reuse your towel. No big deal.

I had an amazing stay at this hotel, from the friend staff to perfectly clean room. This was perfect location, just block away from the beach. So any restaurants to choice from, I think I ate at a different restaurant every night. I love the night life. The roof top pool was nice. I will definitely stay here again and again!!!!!!!

Room Tip: Upgrade to a Jr suite for more space in the room.

Green Features: The hotel care about the environment. They had a sign on your day , remaining to conserve your towels when possible.
