“Perfect location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013 via mobile

Stayed in Miami Beach a few times in mid range hotels, and something alwats lacking. We stayed at the Edgewater for 3 nights and a perfect stay. The room was clean, comfortable and huge with an ocean view, and the staff were really helpful.

Perfect location for the beach and the night life, buf we heard little noise at night as at the quiet end of Ocean Drive.

Good value with a nice breakfast on the patio overlooking the beach. Would definitely stay again.

My best friend and I were scheduled to stay at this hotel for 4 days. When we arrived it transpired that this hotel only has one double bed in each room. There are no twin beds at all on the property. The manager George refunded our money he next day without question on the basis that he hotel didn't meet our requirements, and was most understanding of the situation. George understands the meaning of customer service, as indeed does his lovely staff. Unfortunately his hotel was not for us but I cannot fault the treatment we received.
This hotel is in a superb location smack bang in the middle of all the action on South Beach.

It was a pleasure meeting both of you, Micki. As discussed, the inconvenience you experienced could have been adverted if the consultant you used would have done proper research on Edgewater prior to confirming your reservation here. It is true, we do not have any studios or suites with 2 beds, only double, queen and king with some pull out sofas as an emergency option for a guest.
Thanks for your feedback, I hope your travels will bring you back to us at some point in the future.

Our stay:March 30th 2013 (10 nights)
Being a travel agent and seen many hotels in my life I really have to say that we received great service! The front desk was very helpful and friendly.
We had 2 small dogs and they really made us feel comfortable.
The minute we opened the door to our room we where so happy since the room looked great, clean and they even had set up dog bowels, dog bed etc.. I thought that was very nice of them.
Continental breakfast was good and exactly what a continental breakfast should be.
They make you feel at home and the bed was so comfortable I honestly didn't want to leave had a great time! Yes the 18$ per night was mandatory but when you put into account that it includes wifi, continental breakfast, chairs for the beach as far as I'm concerned its well worth it.
Thanks for everything Edgewater see you next year!
And I will definitely send my clients your way!

We went there the last weekend, the room was very clean and the costumer service we have to say it was excellent, specially Onay, thank you for everything.
The view is fantastic, the weather was a complement.
The hotel is directly on ocean drive very close to the clubs and restaurants, and at the same time the location is peacefull.
We would really recommend this hotel.

We stayed in the Edgewater for the first four nights of our honeymoon. Upon arrival we were given our room on the second floor which, while being perfectly nice, the balcony overlooked an alley. Upon enquiring about a room with a better view not only were we given a room with a view of ocean drive and the beach but we were upgraded from our deluxe studio to a one bedroom suite. Shortly afterwards Edward arrived at our room with a bottle of wine for us! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Edgewater. The location couldn't be better-right across from the beach and with towels and beach chairs provided by the hotel, we couldn't have asked for more. The continental breakfast is perfect, exactly what you need to start off your day. I'd have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to anyone. All the staff are lovely although our dealings were mainly with Joseph & Edward. Thank you for a lovely stay.

We stayed in a Deluxe Studio City View Guestroom. It included a queen bed, couch and a mini kitchen. The room was very nice and clean. The location was directly on Ocean Drive and within walking distance to restaurants and bars. I would definitely recommend this place. The only reason this hotel did not get a 5 stars was because the hotel did not state there was an $18 resort fee when I booked and I found out at check in. Other than that, it was a pleasant stay.

My girlfriend I and recently stayed here for three nights. Overall, we were pretty happy with our stay. The location is great, right across the street from the beach and within walking distance of a lot of restaurants. The hotel provides beach chairs and towels. Be careful when selecting your beach chair as some of them are broken. The continental breakfast was very basic (bagels, croissants, yogurt, bananas, apples, cereal, juice, coffee...etc.) There was also a complimentary beer and wine happy hour from 6-7.

The room was fine, good size. The bed was average. We had a non ocean facing room and our balcony overlooked an alley and some dirty rooftops. There was a mini-fridge in the room which was nice. The bathroom was modern.

As for the service, everyone was great. Alejandro at the front desk couldn't have been nicer or more helpful.

I would stay again as well as recommend it to others.

Thanks for taking the time to share your stay details with us, Brendan. Glad you had a good experience, we work hard to provide just that for all of our guests. Apologies for the beach chair, we do replace them often but it seems that one went unnoticed.
We hope to see you again.
