“A lovely stay and a great experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

We stayed at The Hotel after a 10 night Caribbean cruise and thoroughly enjoyed our 4 night stay. When we first checked in and were shown to our standard room in the main hotel block, We were very disappointed with the room that had a stained carpet, smelled musty and worst of all it had a frosted glass window - so no outward view. We really did not want to spend 4 nights here. After expressing our disappointment, we were shown to an upgraded room in the hotel block almost next door and partly on Ocean Drive. This room was superb, roomy, clean, great views and a huge bathroom with generous walk in shower - very very nice indeed. We paid for an upgrade, but it was worth it. The hotel is in a great location, close to all of the action without being noisy. The superb beach is just across the road.

Concierge at the hotel was very good and everyone we spoke to was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. A special thanks to Dan, who showed us to our room when we first checked in.

We would recommend Fresh on 5th for light breakfasts and lunches at a reasonable price. Fresh fruit, salads and great French bread rolls made to order.

Overall a lovely stay and a great experience.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the new block as these are clean, modern and have great views

Stayed 3 nights here & although the photos made it look larger, it is 3 storeys of great hotel. Great location, very clean & very modern & the service from the staff was sensational. The concierge (John) knew everything from which restaurants to choose to where a small and cost effective laundry could be found. We stayed in the hotel section on Ocean Drive & it was a little noisy in the wee hours due to the bar out front being a 24 hour operation so if in one of the front rooms, ensure you have a night cap!

Room Tip: Ocean drive half of the hotel is two minutes closer to the action but noisier.

Just returned home from a stay at The Hotel in South Beach. It is a wonderfully decorated art nouveau hotel without being too "kitschy." Didn't see any rowdy young folks or hear any of the noise that can be prevalent at South Beach hotels. The staff, especially the bellhop David, are warm and ever helpful...anticipating and accommodating your every need. It's not a budget-price hotel, but well worth the money and easily afforadable if split between two people. The free Wifi and the access to PCs in the business center are also a plus. The hotel's location at 8th and Collins is a one block walk to the beach where free lounge chairs and towels are provided. Also plenty of restaurants and shopping are right outside the Hotel's doors. My friend and I decided on this overnight stay at the Hotel before returning home after landing in Miami at 6:30 am from a 9 hour international flight. I can't wait to return to the Hotel at South Beach for a much longer vist.

Room Tip: If you need two beds ask for Room 223, a corner room overlooking the courtyard.

Hotel was clean and staff VERY attendant. Pricey, quiet, and comfortable. Roof-top pool was great! Prepare for $18/day parking and more inflation then Washington! Beer - $10, mixed drink start at $17! Food on the "beach" is right up there also -$21 for normal breakfast! A neat place to visit, but don't stay "on the beach. Cheaper food and drink two blocks back! Check out Manolo's, 7th and Washington.

Room Tip: There ARE no "views" available....hotel is 1/ block back from beach.

I stayed here for a weekend in April and thought everything was perfect. The staff were friendly and helpful, the room was larger than expected, you can't beat the location, and I loved the décor. Our room was clean and quiet -- as quiet as it can so close to the street. I would absolutely go back to this hotel again.

the location is excellent . We will certainly visit the property again.

The only bad thing is when you go to the beach and ask to be on the front line
it seems that the beach keeper 's prefer to put their customer instead of the hotel clients

My wife and I recently visited The Hotel, as we celebrated our 30th anniversary.

We were very pleased with our experience; the room was clean and exactly as represented, with good amenities for the size and location. The staff were exceptional, with excellent recommendations of restaurants and other activities from the gentlemen manning the concierge desk. The location is excellent for exploring on foot, the hotel is exactly one block from the beach, and the beach amenities (included in your room rate) are also excellent. We will certainly visit the property again; while not cheap, and a Miami Beach which is priced for Europeans, we felt this hotel was a fine value.
