“Great location, comfortable rooms, small bed”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2014

I have been staying in South Beach at the HGVC for several years now. I have seen some serious improvements, including a beautiful room refurbishment and a much faster internet connection. The location will always be fabulous, and the staff that I encounter are quite helpful and pleasant, especially the tall bellman. My only gripe is the queen bed. It is so small and uncomfortable for two people. It is hard to understand why they haven't put King beds in. It might be a bit tight, but I measured about 5+ feet available and another 1.5 feet wouldn't make a difference. My husband and I both need room so we end up sleeping on the sofa bed and the main bed. But you don't go on vacation and not share a bed with your significant other. For the money and the level of quality, the size of bed makes no sense whatsoever. However, given that I am an HGVC owner and love the location and love South Beach, I'll be a regular and loyal guest for years to come.

Room Tip: Any room is a good room. They are all the same.

The recently upgraded rooms were superb and had everything needed. The location is perfect with the beach right across the street, shopping, restaurants nearby and nightlife close enough to walk to but not too close to disturb those not interested in that sort of activity. Alex the Bellman was also very friendly and helpful. I highly recommend this hotel and would definitely stay there again.

perfect location for south beach, .. just steps from all the nightlife, but just out of the noise range. wonderful beach access, friendly staff. No parking, please make sure you inspect your car for scuffs each day you retrieve it from the valet.. rooms are small, but clean and fresh, noisy in the a.m.

Room Tip: noise level was actually quiet, and loud,.....ha, .. quiet in the evenings, but loud in the am. due...

We are actually HGVC owners so we can stay here or use points towards other Hilton properties. First time we stayed here, we had a 1 bedroom that faces the alley. next time, we had 2 kids with us (ok, a 13 yr old & a d 25 year old). We had a 2 bedroom that faced the front, beach view. Loved it. Very clean. Only problem is limited kitchen supplies. There is not a grill to use like other HGCVs. The roof top hot top was fun, even with an approaching hurricane! Great location. Many choices in dining. Rented bikes one morning across the street and road all around, that was fun.

Our first trio to South Beach and we loved it. The HGVC was a perfect place to stay. Staff was super friendly and helpful. It is true that the alley facing rooms are noisy in the morning. But all in all it isn't that bad. The newly renovated rooms are gorgeous and have everything you need.

The suite was clean and modern; everything you needed. Location was excellent, right across from the beach and close to restaurants, shopping, etc. Very friendly staff, especially the Bell Man Alexander who provided great tips for dinner choices and "things to do". Would definitely stay here again.

I recently stayed while work was going on at the property. The upgrades to the rooms are amazing and still fits in with the area. The lobby is clean and refreshing. The valet has a new system and is a lot more efficient. The resort is also now help helping with beach rentals. I recommend going through hgvc it was worth the price.
