“Nice, clean boutique hotel with exceptional service.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2014

Ken and I booked Red for a trip in early June 2014. We wanted a hotel walking distance to South Beach that wasn't right in the middle of the action so the beach wouldn't be too crowded. The hotel is across the street from Miami Beach and a 15 minute walk to the heart of South Beach. When we got there 5 hours before check-in, Charlie (the dearest most bubbly receptionist you could ever meet) allowed us to stow our luggage and offered us use of all the facilities as we waited for our room to be ready. She was awesome. The service from every member of the staff was exceptional. They booked our Everglades excursion for us and offered us great suggestions for restaurants in the area. Beach towels, chairs and a complimentary nightly cocktail were included in our rate. The tv wasn't great and some of the channels were fuzzy. There was also a ton of construction in the surrounding area during our stay but that's hardly in their control. We were never disturbed by it in the room. The room wasn't large but didn't feel cramped. If your looking for luxury this isn't your place but it's a cute, clean, nice hotel.

Room Tip: Make sure your 'Amenity Fee' is included in your rate. It's mandatory and you'll pay...

We spent a fantastic 4 days at the Red South Beach hotel where nothing was to much trouble for the friendly, helpful staff. We arrived early for our check-inn but were greeted most warmly by Osbel on the reservation desk. He told us that our room was ready which was a great relief for us as we had traveled quite a long way that morning. Osbel then proceeded to give us a lot of information on Miami as we had not been there before, which was extremely useful. England were playing football in Miami on the following Saturday in preparation for the World Cup and Osbel checked up where they were playing and even offered to arrange tickets for the game if we so wished. How was that for service. The room and the wonderful breakfasts were a delight. beautifully prepared and beautifully presented.
Just a short stroll from the Hotel was the magnificent beach and we didn't have to worry about beach towels as they were provided by the hotel. again another great service.
All in all, a wonderful stay and we can't praise the staff highly enough especially Osbel on the front desk.

We stayed here for the first part of our honeymoon. The hotel was clean, lively and with friendly staff. a bit disappointed that we didn't get any perks for our honeymoon even though we told them! We would stay there again if we visit Miami beach again.

Our experience at Red South Beach from booking until Check-Out was excellent. We had to make a last minute booking change and the Red South Beach was very accommodating and provided us with a great rate. The rooms were very clean and we always came back to a newly cleaned room each afternoon. The location is okay. You are about 12-15 blocks from the action of South Beach, but we made the walk a few times while cabbing other times and it was not too hateful. Finally the service at the front desk from a nice, young woman named Charlie was absolutely exceptional. All four days we were there she was full of energy and ready to help or provide us some advice on places to go, where to eat. Very good experience all in all.

Do not expect a luxury hotel wage booking. But it is a very cool boutique hotel with modern looking chairs and decor. The restaurant inside is small with a bar area off in the corner. The bartenders were extremely nice and provided great service. The drinks were a bit pricey but nothing different from anything else on South Beach. The hotel itself is close to the beach. They do give you chairs and towels, as well as a laptop if you want to borrow one! Pool also has free wi-fi. The pool area is cozy, but well kept. Many of the hotel guests can be seen hanging out here at any given time. Rooms need a bit of updating but other than that, we were happy with our visit. :)

We stayed 2 nights at this hotel, booked through booking.com. It was one of the cheapest hotels on South Beach and still very close to all the main attractions.
The beach is very close too.
The hotel room was ok and just the right size.
Just a bit noisy because of the A/C (it even made noise when it was turned off). However, I always sleep with earplugs so it was ok.
The bar is expensive as are all most of the places in Miami.

I was first attracted to this hotel by thinking of the red south beach diet. When I looked online I saw that it was in close proximity to the beach. The color scheme seemed pretty catchy. I guess I went during Ultra festival and heavy construction work. I was greeted very kindly by a nice bell boy more than willing to not let me carry my bags one step to a pretty entertaining lobby to the right and and small bar and dinning area to the left. The concierge checked me in and offered me a free drink during happy hour that I more then willing accepted.

The elevator took awhile to arrive to the lobby I believe they only have 2 in a 7 story building. The room like many hotels windows don't open so ventilation is important . My room was a single queen . A lot of the red items could be replaced as they gotten their wear share. The carpet was kinda gross so I kept my socks and shoes on. The bathroom was small but modern . I love the mirrored doors in this room because it made it seem a lot bigger being I had a view of nothing , a brick wall of some sort. But I'm on vacation so I go down to the pool and realize space is a premium with the size of the pool. It wasn't inviting to me so I just lounged on the chairs that where 3 feet away from the ground floor pool cabana rooms. Check-out was easy after John Gotti gave the ok I didn't swipe anything, believe it or not I would go back it was a realistic stay for me nowhere is perfect. Would of been 5 stars if not for the rooms view and needed updating ! The lobby is awesome and the staff where all courteous !

Room Tip: Floors 6 and 7 will probably be your best bet ! You'll have to request a non courtyard view in a...
