We stayed here for 3 nights as our first stop on a 2 week holiday to South Florida. The staff were friendly on arrival, and our room was spacious and well equipped, if a little tired. The beach (which is nice) is across the busy street, but other than than that, not much in the area. The boardwalk all the way into South Beach is very pleasant - probably about a mile and a half.
The main complaint we had was the level of service, which is surprising considering how good this was elsewhere we stayed. Two examples; we returned one evening at 9.30, and were told we couldn't have a drink - the bar was closed. We found a bar up the street, and on returning at 10.30 several people were still having a drink in the restaurant. Seems they would serve you a drink if if you'd had a meal, but not otherwise!
Similarly, we were told breakfast was from 7am. On the day we were leaving we wanted to be away early, so went down to breakfast at 8am, but were told they weren't ready to start serving yet! We went to a small cafe across the road, where 7 or 8 other guests were also doing the same. Claridge seem to be missing out on some income......
All in all, not bad, but wouldn't rush back.
