“HGVC at South Beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

Very convenient to beach, restaurants and shops. If you plan to rent or drive a car, you should park at municipal parking lot at 16th street between Ocean Drive and Collins Ave. It's $20 a day versus $35 a day using hotel valet parking. Did hear loud music playing next to hotel till 3am on Friday night. Not sure if this is normal. Otherwise, the beach was the star attraction. The water was not cold and pretty clean.

We spent our spring break here and had a great time. The location is hard to beat. The property is at the north end of the Art Deco district so you are out of (but can easily reach) the more party focused scene.You are an easy walk to the shopping and dining at Lincoln Road or farther down in South Beach for a more local flavor. We liked The Front Porch, the little gelato spot on Espanola Way, and Puerto Sagua.
The rooms are nicely decorated and clean. I would prefer every other day housekeeping though. The staff was very helpful and friendly, especially with kids. We really enjoyed the hot tubs in the evening and hanging out on the couches on the porch. It is such a great walking town and we spent so much time swimming and boarding, I did not use the small fitness center.
The beach is superb. There is a nice playground a block south as well. My son wanted his picture taken at each of the different lifeguard stands and met quite a few nice kids to play with.
We hopped on a double decker bus tour one day and I would not recommend it. We had a blast on the Pirate Duck though.
You do not need a car if you fly in. We drove down and only used our car the first day to get groceries. Miami Beach gets better every time I visit. Loved it.

Good location. Old building 'turned into' a Hilton Grand Vacations resort. Not what I expected having been to many in Orlando and Hawaii. Not the same. Staff was friendly but sometimes hard to find. Internet/wi-fi was terribly slow and you always had to reconnect daily. Extremely poor. Elevator was tiny; hard to use with family. Area is truly geared towards 20-30 yr old crowd. Loud partying at night, cars cruising by rev'ng engines, etc. Not a 'family' place. Beach was very nice and with the nice location, it can be a family beach hotel (not resort).

Thank you for visiting us and we appreciate your comments. Our South Beach property is a very unique historically preserved property. Guests of all ages and walks of life enjoy this property for its location, proximity to shopping, dining and world famous beaches. Our wi-fi speed depends on how many users utilize it any given time, and unfortunately our guests do need to re-connect in order to release the bandwidth to others when not in use. Hope to see you again in the future.

I have been visiting South Beach for 15 years and consistently stay here at least once a year because the location is outstanding: on Ocean but on the quiet end. Walking distance from the hustle and bustle that is Ocean between 5th and 12th and also Lincoln Road. I LOVE that its across the street from the beach but not ON the beach like the other big resorts. I get the taste of the REAL Miami when I am here: mix of locals and visitors. The only downside is that only 4 rooms have ocean front view and have only been able to enjoy that when I get to stay with a group to book the two bedroom. Other than that, love it!

Always a pleasure coming to this hotel. The staff is amazing and so helpful. The rooms are great, my little apartment love it. The roof top is perfect at night. All in all a must have Time Share. The only one worth buying. :)

I recommend this property as a Wonderful Cozy Hideaway, yet still near the happenings of South Beach. Everything you need is within walking distance. Reasonably priced Restaurants, Great Nite-Life Experience ad/or just chilin' on the ocean.

This is a nice art deco style building up to Hilton standards. It is across the street from a small park that borders the ocean. Great beach access. Tons of dining, shopping and beverage options within a short walk. The staff are great, especially Alex. South Beach is a great spot, super clean, nice sand beach, warm water, etc. A good spot for family and even better for singles or couples. The only negative was some late night noise after the bars close.
