I started off with an attitude before I arrived at the claridge. I bid for a hotel on Priceline and made a mistake during my bidding and i ended up with the claridge. I really did not want to stay here mainly because it is not on the beach nor does it have a pool. When we arrived we were able to upgrade to a king room with a balcony at the front of the building for $25/ night. The room was large and lovely. We did have a bit of a view of the ocean thru the palm trees so that was good. The hotel exudes charm. It is old but kept in pristine condition and decorated beautifully. We ended up loving everything about it. There is a parking lot across the street so if you have a car it will cost you $10/ day to park there versus $22 in the hotel lot. The walk to the beach is very short; actually probably shorter than if you stayed at a sprawling resort. With the resort fee the hotel provides you with beach towels and now chairs. They are limited in quantity so call down first thing in the mornings to have them put aside for you. The employees are all very nice and helpful. They bend over backwards to make your stay as pleasant as possible. Our return flight home wasn't til 7:30 pm so we were able to get a 4:00-5:00 checkout for only $40, which was great. Its true that there is nothing really within walking distance other than a small grocery store/cafe across the street which did come in handy for drinks and snacks for the room and beach. there is alot of construction surrounding the hotel but it did not disturb us at all. In summary we liked the claridge so much that we would not hesitate to stay there the next time we visit Miami.
