“Nice value and great location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

Have stayed at this place between June, 25th 2013 to July 30th 2013 first time. Quite a long stay. And got back for 10 nights for Easter 2014.
Can say that first stay was fine cause we got good deal (around 100 €/night) and honestly, we got much fun. A bit noisy population but thats everywhere the same in S B. We used to gym at David Barton Gym in the area. Short way. And we got access to private pool area on ocean front (deal with David Barton Gym). So that was top! But when we came back this year, disappointed cause DB gym was about to move. No more pool access. And pool at Tradewinds is poor. Poor equipment -old and dirty. And too small area. Otherwise we got weel known with the whole staff thanks to last long stay summer 13'. Now TW appart practices much higher prices. Think it's too expensive now. It's not worth the actual price. Even if they stay in acceptable price segment for many people. But we want more quality. But locationwise, it is great. 9 blocks to go to Lincold Road - the heart of SB for eating, shopping etc. So if you are not too "chic", not getting nuts if you hear every single noise from room close to you, then choose this place. Otherwise u gonna be surprised. Nice staff - we think. If you speak some Spanish it will help you with everybody here☺.

Stayed April 2014, traveled as a couple

Had a great time, apartment was huge and very clean.Very peaceful, so close to hustle and bustle of Ocean drive but peaceful at night. South Beach local so close and frequent,only 5 mins journey to everything. Staff were all very friendly and helpful, especially Jessica and Joan. Would stay again.

First the good: Great location, 10 min walk from beach and safe neighborhood. 24 hr Walgreens and gas station right around the corner, makes getting what you need easy. One bedroom apartment (we had 605) was clean, and very spacious, couldn't complain for the price we had it for through priceline.

Now for the rest: Parking will be a headache for anyone that doesn't want to pay the hotel $20/day fee or whoever wishes to move their car from front of the building (if you can find one). For a hotel that is owned by a chain with at least 7 other properties in the Miami area, this is shameful to charge and not provide (likely because many other hotels charge - I called it gouging). If you choose to play spin around the block a few times (as we did), you will eventually find a spot on the street Pine (within 2-4 blocks walk) that is free between 6pm-8am.

The suite was somewhat well equipped for basic food preparation, but no coffee filters, no paper towels, no dish drying towels. Bright side is full size fridge / microwave / glass stove top oven.

Annoyances: they seem to change towels only, we marked the sheet, same one appeared folded differently. Also, toiletries are very crappy quality, and they never replenished (we were there 4 nights, should be done with change of towels).

Specials kudos to Paola for giving us early check-in and good advice on eateries, etc. As for the check-out fellow, take care of the people waiting to check out to make their flight, instead of waiting on people you booked a cab for a tip, he didn't seem to care, security guard had to holler at him to come back in the office to check us out.

With these tips in mind, keep an open mind about this hotel, and you'll be fine.

Good Afternoon hawag z,

Thank you for sharing your extensive feedback with us! We are located just a bit north of all the action, yet close enough when you want to be apart of it. Parking on South Beach is always a hassle. We advise guests to try not to bring their cars, if that is an option. I will make sure to share your feedback with the General Manager, and they rest of our team so that they are aware. Paola is absolutely wonderful, and I am glad that you were able to experience her great service! We hope that you would stay with us again when visiting Miami in the future!

We loved the location. It was a 5 minute walk to the beach from our room. The hotel looked like an old 50s era style hotel that had been remodeled. Very nice little boutique hotel. The sofa sleeper mattress was not very comfy for the kids, but the rooms were good otherwise. The kitchen was awesome as we were able to save money by cooking most meals in the room.

I am so impressed by the service at Tradewinds Hotel. I just travelled around the world, Brussels, Kathmandu, Bhutan with a final stop for work in Miami. The reason I am pointing it out is because i have had great service all around but the service at Tradewinds was fantastic!! Always with a smile, always efficient, the staff was really 5 stars! Special mention to Paola, Darling and Ricardo.
They helped me not only with my hotel needs but also made my life much easier work wise by helping me print and receive packages, all with a smile. Darling even gave me her parking spot as she was leaving for the day when I needed to load all of my production gear!! For anyone who has been to south beach, you know how valuable that is. ...These small gestures are what make a difference! THANK YOU!!!

The hotel is perfect the apartments have a very comfortable size and they are very well decorated. The stuff is very efficient and friendly. In particular Darling and Candy Sundue the general manager. The location could not be better¡¡¡ near everything and at the same time in a very calm street.

This lovely boutique hotel is one of the best in Sobe. I have been to many of the boutique hotels in S Beach and this by far surpasses. I loved the outside patio courtyard where you can enjoy the tropical gardens and beautifully lite up at night. LOVED having a nice separate kitchen with sitting area to utilize whenever needed. My daughter and I were there for 2 weeks (they have residences as well) and the staff couldn't be more pleasant and accommodating. Thank to Paola's wonderful team that made our stay so welcoming. (Paula, Darling, Ricardo, Yuan,Yoan,Juan, Jessica.)
The decor is nice modern "hip" Miami. They have many bikes you can rent for free with your stay and this is a great area to bike ride or walk. Go behind the building and over the Venetian looking bridge and you will find many great areas to explore, like the Miami Botanical Gardens, the Holocaust Museum, the fun Collins nightlife at just a short walk, and especially the boardwalk along the ocean. For the money this is the best choice to book here!
