“Most enjoyable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

I have stayed here several times and this last was the best. Had a nicely updated room that was a decent size and well worth the money (conference rate). The character of the public areas is well preserved. Service and food at the event was generally excellent although one lunch set out near the beach was in the noon say sun causing the lettuce to wilt rather unappetisingly and the cutlery to be so hot that my knife and fork had to be dipped in my water glass before they could be held in the usual manner. The main entrance does not do the hotel justice. The location at the foot of Lincoln Road is brilliant and tempts a person away from the hotel restaurants and bars.

Gorgeous hotel very well located, near all local attractions including Ocean Drive and all of its colorful restaurants and boutiques.
Rooms very very clean, staff extremely polite and helpful but everything is over-priced, including food by the pool (buffet at $72US/person???)
Stayed 4 nights overall.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 1019 and were very satidfied though not much to look at from the windows.

Hard not having a good time at South Beach, especially if you stay at the Ritz. Very helpful staff, great location close to beach, shops, restaurants and night clubs. If you are a runner, great options north and south of the hotel - North is the quieter scenic board walk, to the south is the people watching and action of Ocean drive. Intend to come back and stay with wife as last 2 stays has been a conference and so no time to enjoy all the facilities.

Room Tip: Ask for an ocean view on floors 9, 10 and 11.

We were in south beach for a couple of nights before going on a cruise. The staff was incredibly helpful and accommodating. Fantastic location, great pool and great beach staff. We were within walking distance or short cab ride of everything we wanted to do.

The Ritz is still a Good Option in South Beach.
The Main positive is its Great Location, in the middle of South Beach, but still Not Noisy. Also Directory on the Beach.
The rooms have been refurbished recently and are Nice with light and fresh Colors.

I find the Service the Weak Point, Far from luxury. Nobody to help with the luggage when you arrive, Nobody to Open the door etc. And the Service at the Pool is (as described by Several reviewers) Really Bad, Nobody serving you, only some Staff Standing Around lazily and having Attitude and being arrogant, no help, Nobody to bring you Drinks or asking you in you want something, when i ordered something i had to wait for very long and then it came but without drinks, so had to wait another half an hour for the drinks - really NOT Ritz Standard! Hopefully they can improve this Point as this is really bothering because you expect some Level of Service at such Place.

Overall Good experience Mainly due to Great Location.

Room Tip: Ocean Facing rooms!

Truly the best spot for adults in South Beach. Awesome view, amazing service and fine rooms -- really all you need for a long weekend in South Beach. I've stayed at many hotels on Collins Ave and this is by far the best -- unless you're looking for a 24-hour party place (please go elsewhere). The restaurant on the beach is unique and the food is yummy...but not cheap. Service at the beach club was top notch.

I may be older than the typical tourist in South Beach, but I love the combination of city - with all the restaurants and shops within walking distance, and beach resort. This is a 5 star city hotel, but 4 stars if you consider it a resort. The only pool is large for a city hotel, but small for a resort and the beach is across the street.

Service was excellent in all areas - the front desk, concierge lounge, pool and restaurant. Food in the lounge and restaurant was very good. All of the employees are extremely friendly and helpful.

The room was not especially large, but was well decorated, new looking and very clean. We had a partial ocean view, but also a view of building roofs, air conditioners and other equipment. My one, usual complaint about the room was that it had only one chair (besides the desk chair) - although pictures on the hotel web site show most rooms with a sofa.

The hotel is conviently located to all the South Beach activities - but removed from the busiest/noisiest area. It may not attract the trendiest people- but I consider that a good thing. I would definitely stay here again the next time I'm in the area.
