“Wonderful treat -- Club Floor is a deal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

Just returned for a fun and relaxing 4 days at this great hotel. Great pool and beach service and absoutlely ideal location. If you can, get a room on the Club Floor -- delicous breakfast, lunch and snacks all day and into the evening. Wine and champagne included. LOVED it. Will be back.

Room Tip: Higher floors are nice and quiet

Can't say enough good things. Got a decent AAA rate and was upgraded to a Junior Suite. Beautiful room and hotel. Stellar service. Would stay again in a heartbeat. Nice gym. Beautiful lobby. Great location on Lincoln Road-can walk to everything.

Outstanding client service since you are received at the front door. Staff remembers your name and treat you like a prince. Pool, Beach Facilities, Lounge, Beach Bar, and rooms outstanding. You feel like a king in your entire stay. If you would like to be loved take your loveone to this Hotel. You will not regret it. My only comment is you should not charge separately for wi-fi in this type of Hotel, include it in the rate and have guest free access.

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!

My first time at a Ritz. They know what they're doing. No complaints to do. From the beach, pool and room service not a word the say. Everything was amazing. Of course it's pricy, but it worth all of it. We were granted with early check-in and they manage perfectly our needs for the other 7 days staying there. Someday, if possible would return for sure. And certainly will try other Ritz hotel's around the world. Another excelent thing about Ritz South Beach it is it's location. Almost the heart of lincoln open mall. A perfect spot.

Room Tip: try an upgrade when checking in, the rooms with balcony to the pool are fantastic, very nice view

This Ritz is a very nice hotel right on the beach and so close to the Lincoln Road with its multitude of dining options. I really liked that they do not charge a resort fee and still provide towels and beach loungers for free to their guests. Beach area is managed really well with great setup, drinks and food delivery right to your spot. Similarly, pool area is really good, with plenty of towels and loungers. Pool is nice and warm.
Rooms are quite spacious and bathrooms are quite modern and nice. They also provide apples to their guests which is a nice touch - I always feel I don't have enough fruit when I travel.
Now for the negatives: 1) if you do not get oceanfront view room, the road noise from A1A (Collins Ave) becomes a bit intrusive even on the 9th floor, but still it didn't prevent me from a good night's sleep. 2) Pillows - small and skinny - really uncomfortable. I have to say this was the biggest negative and a place like the Ritz should be able to afford better pillows.

Room Tip: Ocean facing rooms are a huge plus to avoid road noise.

I was prepared to be wowed given the price of the room. From the moment the taxi pulled up to the moment I had to wait for a toothbrush and paste to be sent up to the room after multiple requests....I'm sorry to say other hotel chains are doing a better job in the customer service category. Where are the "ladies and gentlemen serving ladies and gentlemen?" - isn't that the Ritz mantra? Yes the bedding, towels and quality of room furniture are indeed wonderful - first rate. And the location of this hotel is convenient. But the little touches - front desk staff was scattered, unorganized, overstaffed bell stand, a series of steps to walk up on the way to the elevators (pretty bad when you're checking in at midnight with a suitcase). And no coffee maker.....huh. Disappointing because I have a lovely balcony.

Room Tip: Rooms are generally noisy despite the thick walls. I was there when a convention was in town so tha...
