“Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

We recently stayed here for 4 nights in the beginning of May. The place is immaculately clean. Rooms are as pictured on websites. The staff was friendly and helpful. The location is also good, being only one block from Lummus Park. This hotel has no amenities as in the sense of a pool, outdoor seating area, restaurant, etc. But this is a good thing. You really feel like a resident, and with the full kitchen you can run to the nearby Publix and pick up some simple groceries and fix food in your own kitchen, which is well equipped for simple meals: fridge, microwave, two burner cooktop, sink and dishwasher. Also a coffee pot. There is no oven, just fyi. The daily maid service is phenomenal. They provide clean beach and bath towels and clean sheets every single day. One thing that might be nice for them to include: a dish towel and a dish rag

My observations as a first time South Beach visitor: I have noticed may complaining about noise in various reviews. South Beach is 1) a city, which are generally not known for peace and quite. 2) A city renowned for catering to a major party crowd with bars, restaurants, and nightclubs. These, too, are generally not known for peace and quiet. 3) Full of partiers and obnoxious bar flies, again... not known for peace and quiet, especially at 3 or 4am when said establishments disgorge their drunk patrons onto the city streets. Do the math. If you want peace and quiet, don't stay in South Beach and ESPECIALLY do not stay anywhere near Ocean Drive. Go up to Miami Beach with all the retired people and get your good nights sleep. For example, the Clevelander, on Ocean Drive, is an L shaped hotel the center of which is a GIANT outdoor patio/club playing extremely loud house music. Don't expect to get any sleep there.

Anyways, stay at the Jetset Franklin if you want a very nice place to stay at a GREAT value, considering the facilities you get with your room. It's like being home.

Earlier this week, got off cruise and took cab to Jetset, where we had 2 rooms booked for the evening. When we got to the 860 Collins Ave. property, there were several Miami Police "no trespassing" signs around front, keeping you from entering front. I called Jetset tele # provided and got a pre recorded message.....so all 4 of us college educated folks and local cab driver stood there totally confused by situation! It was decided to go down the street and book rooms at the Blue Moon (Excellent Hotel). Once settled in called booking agent to let them know about situation..they called JS and found out that we should have ignored the no-trespassing signs and gone around to the side of building where an intercom was available. JS charged us full amount!!

We apologize for the confusion. The signs you are referring to were located in front of the REPLAY clothing store, and is not affiliated with Jetset Franklin. This was explained when you arrived in our office at 11:00 AM informing the front desk you couldn't find the check in, and that you had already reserved at another hotel.

When we asked you to dial our "broken" telephone number on speaker phone in front of us, our automated system answered. In listening to the recording, you would hear to "dial zero" to connect with the front desk.

We had 9 other guests check in with us that day; two of which spoke little to no English and each found the check-in without any issue.

We have a 3 day cancellation policy. You were demanding a refund on the date of arrival, which is in direct violation of our cancellation policy, so no we did not issue a refund since we had those apartments taken off the market and reserved for you.

Again, we apologize for the confusion. However, this is not an accurate reflection of Jetset Franklin Hotel.

Stayed here for two days. Staff was so helpful and nice. Very quiet place to stay in the heart of south beach. Room was more like an apartment then a hotel room. Interior of room very modern. Short walk to shopping, bars, and restaurants. Was very nice to be only one street away from the beach. Will stay here again if I am ever in the area again. Price was better than most hotels in the area. Only issue was valet was confusing when calling to return the car back to parking garage. Overall nice place to stay!

Thank you so much for the great review! We are pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay with us! We are very sorry to hear about the valet issues; it is an outside company who works with all the hotels on our street. We spoke with the management directly and hope to resolve these issues so future guests don't experience the aggravation you did.

Again, thank you for choosing Jetset Franklin. It would be our pleasure to accommodate you again in the future. :)

The accommodations were perfect for us. Tons of space and stylishly appointed. Amazing location. Friendly staff. There's nothing more I could have asked for. It's weird but it's been a few months since we stayed there and I can't stop thinking about how much I liked the lotion and the conditioner in the bathroom. I was surprised because it wasn't a brand I would have normally tried.

Room Tip: I'm sure they're all great, but we had a great two bedroom apartment overlooking Collins Ave...

The staff was amazing during our whole stay. They made sure that our room was ready for us even when we arrived around 6am. And they also let us stay a whole extra day because our flight was late at night. They were very helpful in giving tips and helping us if we wanted to rent a car or do some tours.
The room was excellent! A full kitchen with great appliances and also fresh coffee everyday. Perfect and extremelly clean. Bath was great also! Wifi for free in the whole building.
Location was our main interest when choosing a hotel and Jetset Franklin was the best. Near great shopping area, restaurants and the beach! Even though the weather was not great during our stay, our last 2 days we spent at the beach were great, and walking distance (1 block) from the hotel.
When we return to Miami this will definitely be our nº 1 choice. Thanks again!!

Room Tip: Make sure you choose a room that doesn't face any street since during weekends gets a bit noisy...

The decor is very amusing and the style of furniture not your average hotel room.The room was very clean, spacious and had everything you needed, including beach towels. The bathroom needed a shelf to hold toiletries. Location couldn't be better. The front desk staff very efficient and helpful. The gate to enter the hotel door is on the left side of the clothing store that takes up the main floor of the building. Only negative was the hallway noise. Very loud on our third night.

Room Tip: At the end of the hall so you don't hear the comings and goings.
