Stayed for one night after our Caribbean cruise and am so glad we did. The rooms were top notch and the bathrooms luxury mini spas of marble and glass..
24 hour fitness facilities and great pool side area right on the north end of the Miami south beach walk.-also on the corner of Lincoln street where we went for dinner.
We took in a walking tour of the art deco district downtown, it takes about an hour and was definitely worth it.
Staff is very friendly and helpful...couldn't be happier with our stay!

Room Tip: obviously go for the ocean view if possible, but you are steps away in any direction

What can I say? It's the Ritz. We fled here after having a bad experience at another hotel. It was a splurge, but the South Beach Ritz charges less per night than Coral Gables or Key Biscayne by $100-$200 a night. A relative bargain if you can swing it. The beach and pool are both great, even though the pool can get crowded. We arrived before check-in and they let us use the pool and gave us discount coupons for massages and poolside drinks and food until 4:00 check-in. Loved it! The staff is very attentive and cheerful and I had a fantastic steak at the restaurant.

Although this is a beautiful hotel right at the beach and a few blocks from the Lincoln Road pedestrian mall, I left feeling that just being a Ritz does not make this a first rate place...case in point - the concierge services were extremely lacking and not all workers were willing to go the extra step for you....the service by the magnificent pool was amazing....food was very expensive! They would not upgrade my room (despite my gold status) and was given room with no view and dirty windows (on outside)....valet service was exceptional and overall stay was pleasant...but we expected more from the Ritz!

The Ritz does not disappoint. From the moment you walk in...first class all the way. Patrick main floor concierge was responsive, polite and always a smile. Club level team take great care (Darrien, Mike and all were excellent dealing with my food allergies and great recommendations for dinners out. They are a wonderful team to greet you everyday.
The pool was stunning. The surround is clean and pool staff very attentive. My biggest issue is that chairs are "held" for the right guest at the right price. I do expect better of the Ritz for allowing this practice to occur and I might say, it was very obvious by both guest and pool staff with the arrangements. I was once at the pool at 8 am and over half the chairs were saved. Apparently all these people were just out for a walk? Anyway, I did always have a chair to sit in and since the weather was perfect, not much more you can ask for.
I would stay here again.

Room Tip: Club Level is the way to go

Flight was cancelled and we decided to stay at the Ritz, South Beach for night. Booked the property on my iPad at the airport. Called the property to confirm and discuss transportation. We took a cab from MIA to Ritz ($32.00 one-way). From the moment we arrived (Bellman knew our names as we exited cab) until check out was a five star experience. We are gold members and we were immediately upgraded to a suite. Wow, what a room! Overlooked the pool and ocean with a great view of the sunrise. The suite was enormous and the furnishings and decor were immaculate. The two bathrooms were spectacular with great products. The staff is friendly and professional. The location of the hotel is excellent right on the beach and access to the walking/bike path and you're right on Lincoln Road and at the start of the Collins Avenue strip. The pool area is well done. The Ritz is pricey but if you want great service and top notch facilities, it's worth it. I don't mind paying for quality and great service. You just can't beat the location, facilities and service. When we return to South Beach we will be staying at the Ritz.

The arctic chill that swept the nation help make a business trip to Miami into a weekend getaway for me and the wife. We took the early flight into Ft. Lauderdale and went to the beach. The Ritz was able to check us in early and get everything set up. As expected, the service was awesome- courteous, polite, conscientious. We ended up in one of the pool side rooms which made for great people watching and was very comfortable.

After business meetings, we went out for a little bit. The location is perfect for walking around. Our room was so nice though that we spent most of the time there. We caught a movie and chilled out. The next day, walks on the beach and breakfast by the pool. We even caught a few rays lounging in the chair. It was so nice outside we went swimming.

Literally, after two days, it felt like we had been away for a week. The Ritz Carlton staff and the wonderful accommodations made this spur of the moment vacation into a memorable and much needed respite. We hope to do it again sometime.
