“Exellent hotel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

Me and my girlfriend stayed at Edgewater for one week, from 1st - 7th of August 2013.
Fantastic hotel! Huge and spacious rooms, the beach just across the street, close to everything you want and need when in Miami and SoBe.. :)
Nice rooftop balcony with happyhour every afternoon, perfect for an hour of relaxing with a few, cold beers after a day in the sun on the beach.. :)
Very nice and helpful staff, and Michael at the front desk is fantastic!

We'll come back, that's guaranteed!

We recommend this hotel to all travellers, you won't be disappointed!

My husband and I stayed at the Edgewater Hotel for 3 nights. The front desk agent Alejandro was so friendly and helpful. He gave us great tips on dining and thanks to him; we ate the best burger of our lives :) The Happy Hour between 6 pm-7pm was awesome. You have a chance to drink beer and wine for free. The hotel is a bit away from the crazy party atmosphere which is perfect because we were able to sleep peacefully. I would definetly recommend this hotel.

I stayed only one night here and it was my first time to stay on Ocean Dr. The Edgewater is a bit away from the really crazy party atmosphere. This was perfect for me as I was able to enjoy my Ocean View Room without having to deal with noise from the street. Loved staying on Ocean Dr.

The moment we entered the hotel, Alejandro at the reception was super busy, but attentive, and acknowledged us. A small gesture that meant a lot, as some would assume we could see they are busy and say nothing.
He very thoroughly went over every aspect of the hotel amenities, and charges to expect, such as the fee for the wifi, breakfast and happy hour.
The room was huge and so was the bathroom. Nicely decorated, though showing just a wee bit of wear.
The bed was comfortable and the temperature in the room was perfect - not too cold, like so many Miami hotels.
My only complaint was the shower was not enclosed, it has sort of half door, so lots of water ends up on the floor.
I can not finish my review without saying the staff is really excellent, friendly, helpful, and informed.
I also enjoyed the informal rooftop happy hour and meeting some of the other guests.

I also enjoyed being able to walk everywhere I wanted to go and the beach is literally across the street!

I will certainly stay at the Edgewater again!

My husband and I stayed one night in August for our honeymoon before going to Orlando... and we were so sad that we didn't book more nights there. We had the One Bedroom Suite Ocean View and we felt like royalty. The front desk agents were so friendly and helpful too. The location is excellent, right in front of the beach, but just a couple of blocks from amazing restaurants and shopping.

We are already planning our next vacation... just to go back to Edgewater again!

My wife and I stayed at the Edgewater for 3 nights at the end of June and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The room was comfortable and spacious. It had a small kitchen which would be handy for a longer stay for sure. One thing we noticed was that sidewalk restaurant and door staff had some way of recognizing guests because even before we walked up to the entrance they greeted us by saying "Welcome back". This is noticeable because if you've been to Ocean Drive, you'll know that as you walk through down the street, all of the hotels have sidewalk cafes and restaurants and their staff offers bargains (20% off your meal, buy 1 get 1 drinks) to get you to come in.
As others have mentioned, the beach is right across the street, as well as a kiosk for renting bicycles by the hour (highly recommended).
Our only complaint was a consistent musty smell in the room. I suspect that is the nature of the area because it's humid and it's by the beach so we didn't bother complaining. Just something to be aware of. It's also likely why they have candles for sale, but that's just a guess.
Again, a beautiful hotel, friendly staff, and a perfect location.
Parking is expensive but a car is likely unnecessary. Ours sat for 3 days in the lot because we never needed it. Plenty of things are walking or biking distance -- we only took a cab once.

I stayed at the Edgewater August 8-11 , 2013. From the moment we arrived the service and attention to detail was second to none. We stay at many hotels on Sobe but this hotel truly has made it to the top of our list. The staff is very friendly and attentive and the GM George Vesa was a very hands on GM that made us feel that he was always available.

Excellent Place to stay !!!!!!!!!!

Me and my girlfriend stayed here for a week at the end of July. We stayed in a deluxe studio on the 3rd floor and from the moment we arrived, everything was simply perfect. The greeting we received made us feel right at home from the second we got out of the taxi, and from then on, the stay was amazing. Everyone on the front desk was helpful and friendly, great conversations every time we passed and even gave us a print-out list of all the local recommended bars and restaurants for us to visit. We were showed to our room by Eduardo (i think) and we were thoroughly pleased by the size and all the amenities. A kitchenette, a modern, clean bathroom, freezing air conditioning (an absolute necessity!), comfy double bed, sofa, desk, large wardrobe, hair-dryer, safe, mini-bar, plates - everything we could ever need.

But that wasn't all. The all-you-can-drink happy hour from 6-7 was wondrous - drinking ice cold coronas in 100 degree heat on the roof terrace was the perfect way to spend any evening, without spending a penny (compared to $6 for a corona everywhere else). Breakfast was included also, even though we slept through it 6 days out of 7!

From the free beach chairs provided, to the consistent, thorough maid service, the free fruit at the front desk and the ice cold water dispenser at reception, everything at Edgewater is absolutely perfect. The friendliest staff we have encountered anywhere in the world and probably the nicest hotel we have ever stayed at.

Definitely recommend to anybody staying on South Beach - can't praise this place enough.

10/10
