Good boutique hotel with some very individual features, the jacuzzi in the lobby is pretty cool! A few things marred our enjoyment of our stay largely that Miami beach is currently a building site and The Claridge is surrounded by cranes and building works, not exactly relaxing being woken up at 6.30am to the sounds of drilling! However this is not the fault of the hotel, but it may have been nice to have been either given a room away from the building works or offered some kind of reduced rate, i would say that the room rate of $174 per night (incl tax) was grossly over priced for what you receive in comparison to other hotels i have stayed in, however this seems to be the case with the whole of Miami not just this individual place. If you are planning on staying here be aware that the location is not on the beach front it's over the other side of Collins Ave so can be a little noisy from the street, also it's on the corner of 35th and the main bars/restaurants start at around 17th street so it's a long walk, however you can get a bus for $2 each at the back of the hotel or a taxi costs around $9. We only ate breakfast once at the hotel again overpriced for what you got at $12.95 for buffet which was cold and untasty with a limited selection, the free breakfast we received in the comfort inn was way better! Overall we won't be returning to the Claridge or Miami for that matter, it spoils your enjoyment to constantly be overcharged for average things!
