“Great hotel with great staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

We spent quite a bit of time looking for the best hotel in South Beach that would cater for our needs, and when we came across a good flight and hotel deal through Ebookers we jumped on it (1050 GBP for two people with return flights from New York and 5 nights in a Couture room with continental breakfast). The room was great with a king bed, a sofa, desk and massive bathroom (we had a corner room with partial ocean view). The breakfast was quite simple, as one would expect from a continental breakfast. We asked if we could pay extra for a hot american breakfast, but we were told this was not possible, much to our surprise. The rooftop pool is small but nice (though the water is a little warm for swimming) and due to the size of the hotel it never felt overcrowded. What makes this hotel stand out from the rest though is the location right in the middle of South Beach (you really could not be in a better spot) and the amazing staff who will do everything they can to make your stay a memorable one. Thank you guys!

Room Tip: Ask for a corner room if you want a bit more space and dual aspect windows.

Recently stayed at The Hotel and absolutely loved it!!! Everyone was so nice, helpful and friendly. The location is great! It's right next tothe shops and restaurants on Collins Avenue. The only problem with this is was it was a bit noisy at night. The rooftop pool is very nice and has a beautiful view of the beach. The restaurant has a restaurant on it's property that is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and it has a beautiful outdoor eating area that looks like a private garden.
I would definitely stay here again. My husband and I had the basic room which was comfortable. I didn't have any view which would have been nice. But the room was fine for the amount of time we visited South Beach. I loved this hotel and would absolutely visit again!

I spent a great deal of time choosing where to stay in South Beach. I was very pleased with my choice. It was fun to stay in an historic hotel that was in good condition. Our room was super quiet (#33 I think, but not sure) with a tiny view of the ocean. The pool is small but nice. Food at the restaurant was delicious although the service was slow. The courtyard for dining al fresco was really lovely- like a little hidden garden. It is a half block from the craziness- quiet yet convenient. I highly recommend it.

Room Tip: The icemaker in the hall was loud. Be sure you are not near that.

Excellent location right in the midst of South Beach, affiliated with the News Cafe. The room we had, well actually we upgraded to a suite (for a very reasonable amount considering it is peak season), was blissfully quiet!
The art deco theme was perfectly maintained throughout the entire hotel, down to the light fixtures, original stone floors from the late 30's in the lobby and elevator.
The room was equally spectacular, as well as clean and comfortable, with robes and ample towels. The staff were extremely courteous, friendly and helpful, as well as knowledgeable about the area.
The rooftop pool and bar area were charming.
The only drawback which was inconvenient was the weak wi fi.
Highly recommend this lovely hotel and fab staff!

Room Tip: The staff were happy to show us all the available rooms so we could choose!

After reading so many TripAdvisor reviews of many many hotels in SOBE, this was the perfect choice. We absolutely loved the hotel, the staff, the location and the room. The complimentary beach chairs saved us $40 a day & $160 over the length of our trip--consider that if you are looking at less expensive properties that do not give you chairs. They were awesome extra touch. Each day we went to the beach and then spent the late afternoon at the amazing pool on the roof with a fabulous ocean view. You really do not feel like you are missing out on the beautiful ocean when you are at the pool because you can see it all. Get a frozen mojito at the pool bar--they are the best. We will definitely be back.

We (mother and teenager) spent 8 nights at The Hotel. The location is excellent, the rooftop pool and bar wonderful, although the view is mostly on airconditioning systems of the two neighbouring roofs. We had 2 rooms, one on the first floor right next to the garbage containers outside and some maintenance unit, the other on the second floor, again without view and very noisy as the doors slam into the locks. The rooms were stylish and tastefully decorated, not big but clean. Fresh towels twice a day. The lobby, the two bars and the patio are inviting and have class.The towels and chairs at the beach are great, unfortunately an umbrella costs 15 $. We just loved having Yoga on the roof on Saturdays. But the best thing about the hotel are the staff, above all John Durham, the concierge, a source of friendliness and wisdom who went out of his way to make our stay comfortable and interesting, and wonderful David, the bellman. They made us feel at home at The Hotel.
We will definitely come back, this time making sure that our room is quieter and has SOME view.

My husband and I spent our first trip to Miami at The Hotel for 6 nights. We were not disappointed! Like all the other positive reviews posted, the hotel is packed with the great combination of location, staff and style. When we first arrived, we checked into room 219. We had a bad feeling about the room as it is very close to the elevator. Our fear was proven right as there were lots of noise from banging of doors and guests checking out with their luggages in the morning. After suffering the noise for 2 mornings, we went to the front desk to request to change rooms. The manager (I think her name was Audrey.. Very sorry that I misplaced your name card in Bahamas) was so sweet, upgraded us to room 333 on Ocean Ave. It was a big, new and beautiful room. We totally loved it!

And yes, the most convenient thing was having the News Cafe (they do serve good food there) downstairs where you can grab a bite or drink anytime! In addition, there are many restaurants nearby and shopping is just across the street. Also, it is located very near the Visitors Centre where you can book your trips (at a better rate than booking with the hotels). There is a large Walmart about 4 blocks down so you can stocked up on water or any other necessities. Of course, the big plus is the free beach chairs that came with the room. However, you have to be careful while snacking on the beach because the seagulls would come after your food!

We are very happy to make the right decision to stay with The Hotel. The great experience began at the reservation. A Big Thank you to Ms Janessa Daiz who was ever so patient with my reservation! They really make it their business to ensure you are having a fun holiday!

Just stay with The Hotel once and you will understand why you want to go back again and again...

Room Tip: The rooms at The Hotel @ 800 are quieter, bigger and much more comfortable.
