“Short trip to Miami”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2013

We stayed at the Edgewater Hotel for 2 nights in early Nov 13, and had a great time. It's right on Ocean ,Drive, clean, and the staff was very professional and courteous. It's a great location and the breakfast on the balcony was nice. No pool, but the beach is right across the street. I'd definitely stay here again.

Edgewater was right on the water front, safe ,sound and secure. We found out eating on our boulevard can be pricey although a nice experience. Try their Giant Cocktails during Happy Hour.... 2 for $30!Go one street back and there's the same food for half the cost. Lovely accommodation, small and quaint. Beautiful private balcony overlooking the ocean and locale. No pool but don't really need one. We were able to walk everywhere...and if tired, just grab a cab. Weather was squally and overcast a few days but didn't stop us! Nice to be away from the HUGE hotels and virtually in the Art Deco region.

Room Tip: We had a suite which was huge, two massive rooms we really didn't need! Our daughters had a stan...

I looked long and hard for a good hotel in South Beach and eventually settled on the Edgewater. Overall, I wasn't disappointed, but it could be better still.
The hotel is situated on busy Ocean Drive; close enough to all the action but far enough away from the noise of some of the bars where they have loud music pumping away all day.
We were pleasantly surprised to be upgraded to a suite overlooking Ocean Drive and the beach. The suite was very nicely furnished with everything you could need and plenty of space to do it in.
There is a complimentary happy hour in the evening served on the fifth floor terrace overlooking the beach and Ocean Drive. Unfortunately the lady (with the French accent) overseeing proceedings wasn't the friendliest person for this role and grudgingly & unsmilingly handed out glasses of wine in plastic cups. Beer was also available. I don't think I would go to a second happy hour if our stay was longer than one night..
Breakfast was included in the room rate (or the resort fee levied on guests) and was also served on the fifth floor terrace. Breakfast was served from 8.00 am to 10.00 am but when we got there around 9.00 am, most of the limited offerings were gone and not replenished.while we were there. To say breakfast was basic is an understatement and very disappointing.
So to summarise, the hotel is in a good location; the rooms are clean, large and well appointed. Happy hour falls flat and breakfast was very disappointing.

We started our stay in Tampa Bay, Florida and decided to take the 5 hour drive down to Miami Beach. After a long drive we arrived at Edgwater and could not be happier for the location and cleanliness. We were traveling with our 2 yr old son as well. Our room had an ocean view as well as a view to Ocean Dr. It was a one bedroom with a kitchen and even a hallway, very roomy! Despite being steps away from all the action of South Beach and having the view, our room was quiet. This hotel also includes free continental breakfast out in the terrace on the top floor. The views from the terrace are nice and it's very relaxing. We missed out on happy hour as we were out busy each day. Beach towels and chairs are available. During our stay, my son had an accident, he was jumping on the couch and fell. He hit his ear on the edge of the coffee table in our room causing a laceration. The hotel staff was quick to offer us first aid and a call-in doctor. However we ended up taking him to the ER because we thought he's need stitches. Let me be clear, I don't blame the hotel for this , it could have happened in our house too.

Overall, I would stay here again requesting the same room and I would recommend this hotel as well. It's also good if you're traveling with kids. Again it's great location on Ocean Dr yet quiet enough.

I stayed here with my wife for almost ten days, and we enjoyed every moment. The location is perfect and near to public parkings. You can walk to Espagnola Way, and the beach is just in front of the door. The staff was friendly and very helpful. They don't charge you to receive mail packages, and the service is very carefully done. This is the third time we stay at EdgeWater. And we have no intention to try another one.

Room Tip: If possible, ask for an "Ocean View" room type.

Stayed here with my best friend and we enjoyed every second of it. We had a nice suite. Perfect location to walk around. Beach is a few steps away. The staff goes above and beyond for you. Very comfortable beds and pillows. Very clean rooms and bathrooms. Renovated. Feels very comfy. Will totally come back!

My wife and I stayed here for a long weekend away and it was perfect. The location is great, close enough to walk to Espanola Way for good food and far enough from the clubs that you can get some sleep at night. The staff was super friendly and helpful, Johnathan at the front desk helped us on multiple occasions. The breakfast and happy hour were about what to expect from a free breakfast and happy hour, but set the mood of a relaxing time. We definitely plan to stay here again the next time we are in Miami.
