This was my 4th time back to the Ritz Carlton and for sure my last. Obviously, the last 3 visits were ok but no more! The best thing about this hotel is the location. It is ideally situated if you want the vibe of South Beach. The rooms were just renovated I am told. They look like "IKEA" on steroids! UGLY! UGLY! UGLY! I felt as though I was in a hospital........ stark walls, plastic furniture, etc. The mattress was HORRIBLE for a recently renovated room. The carpet was dirty and stained. We were there for a Friday and Saturday night. Both nights we were disturbed by the noise next door. OK.... I get it! I was in SoBe! But at 2:00 am I want to sleep and the hotel wasn't the least bit interested in trying to get the hotel to abide by the noise ordinance in MiamiBeach. Which I believe is 12:00 midnight. We did complain after 2 nights of no sleep. The hotel said sorry. They should have made some type of compensation.
The lobby of the hotel looks great at night..... but in the daytime it is OLD and TIRED!!! Furniture needs replacing, etc.
There are so many hotels in Miami...... this should be your last stop.
We are frequent travelers but were extremely disappointed with Ritz.
If you want a luxury hotel........ this is NOT it! Go somewhere else!
