“Wonderful Boutique Resort in the Midst of South Beach.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

The location is superb; smack in the middle of South Beach. Almost everything in the area is within walking distance of most of what one goes to South Beach for. Taxis are plentiful and there is also the South Beach Local, a bus service that circumnavigates the peninsula. It costs all of twenty five cents which is a wonderful bargain. The property itself is a well maintained and clean facility and totally art deco. It is small but the living units are of adequate size especially considering that most folks will not be spending a lot of time in their rooms. A few, very few, of the units over look Ocean Drive which can be fun for people watching. The majority of the units look out onto an alley and the side of an adjacent building but this is not a real distraction. The beach is just beyond a nice little park adjacent to Ocean Drive and a very easy walk away. There is a multitude of restaurants, shops and bars within easy striking distance. The staff is friendly and helpful. There is a $35.00 per day fee for valet parking but it does offer in and out service if you want your car during your stay. I will go back to South Beach and I wouldn't consider staying anywhere else.

Fantastic location, across the road from the beach in the Deco area of the city. Close to all local amenities. Very comfortable and well appointed.Staff were friendly and willing to help with any request. Getting a late check out was easy and they ensured that the cab to airport offered a fixed rate for the journey.

Room Tip: Ask for a double room then you get an ocean view!

The position is excellent a few yards from the beach. It is an art deco property which rather limits what can be done with it. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms are not as large as other Hilton GVC properties we have stayed in and the cooking facilities although adequate are not really up to producing a full meal. There are only 2 cooking rings. We were in a one bedroom unit which was fine for 2 of us but 4 people would have been very crowded. The bed was very comfortable. The rooms were looking a little tired but I understand they are all being gradually refurbished which would answer that comment. We will certainly return.

Great hotel right across the street from the beach. The staff was very friendly and the suites were a nice size and very clean.i would definitely stay there again. Located on ocean drive near the action but far enough away to not hear all the noise.

This resort is fantastically located. My wife and I came into town to compete in the Miami 70.3 triathlon on October 28th. We stayed here four nights. There is no swimming pool BUT you are on Ocean Drive in South Beach across the street from the beach. There are two buildings, each with a roof top jacuzzi. Plenty of restaurants within walking distance and Starbucks across the street. So you can grab your latte on your way to the beach. The Betsy hotel is next door and has a very tasty menu for breakfast and dinner. We were in a 1B/1BA suite and had a couple of guests stay with us the night before the race. The suite was large enough and accommodated four adults. I would stay here again.

Room Tip: Choose a room at the back of the hotel. Since you are on Ocean Dr it can get loud for rooms facing t...

Stayed at the Hilton Grand Vacation Club at South Beach with my wife and 2 year old son who is already fast growing into a beach bum like his dad.

Like most reviews say the hotel rooms are a bit smaller than other HGVC locations but that's pretty standard for Miami Beach hotels. Our one bedroom plus suite was much bigger than other rooms I've seen in the area. We were a bit concerned that there was no pool but with the beach being so close we never got a chance to miss not having one at the hotel. The location is amazing right across from the beach and within walking distance to all kinds of stores and restaurants. It's only a 5-10 min walk (about 4-5 blocks) from the well known Lincoln Road Mall where all the restaurants and stores you could possibly want to go to are. It's definitely not loud and crazy but if that's what you're looking for it's a short walk away too.

As with all the HGVC hotels the staff was amazing and the rooms were beautiful. Can't say enough about our stay will def be coming back here again for a quick get away.

We stayed on a Friday and Saturday night. We arrived early, around noon on Friday. The staff was extremely accommodating and got us a two room suite right away. We were checked in and walking around South Beach by 1230. If you enjoy good food, you won't be disappointed. And there is a bunch more dining available a short five minute walk away on Espanola Way. The beach is a short two minute walk directly across the street. For great views, go to the 4th floor open air/roof access. If you are looking for an ocean view room, you won't find one on ocean drive unless you pay a lot more at a hotel having more than for or five floors. Do yourself a favor and get out of the room and walk to the beach which is a much more beautiful experience.
