“Awesome Hotel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

We had a great stay at The Hotel! The hotel manager, Neil, was super friendly and accommodating up at the roof deck pool and made our stay very enjoyable. John, the concierge, provided great restaurant and activity recommendations and arranged easy airport transportation. Esteban and Dan were great too - always very friendly - offering help and picking up take out orders from local restaurants. The Hotel is in the perfect location to check out great restaurants on Ocean, Espanola Way and Lincoln Drive. The 3-minute walk from the beach and rooftop pool access make it the perfect South Beach destination. We would definitely stay here again and recommend to others!

After a lot of research of the SOBE hotels and reading tons of reviews, I choose The Hotel...and I am so glad I did. From check-in to check out, everything was great. With the other reviews, I was concerned about room and bathroom size, so I went with the Atelier room, which was perfect for two people. We had no issues with street noise or from the other rooms. We had a corner unit with a nice view. Service was top notch and with the beach right across the street, the location can't be beat! The News Cafe (delicious!) was right downstairs, and we ate there quite a few times. The beach view from the rooftop pool is gorgeous. It's a small pool, but perfect for cooling off after lounging in the sun. And on the beach, we enjoyed just lounging on the complimentary cushioned beach chairs for hours. Love, love, loved it! We will be back.

Stylish rooms, great bed, and in the heart of everything.

Love the European rooftop pool. Great views of south beach! And you can enjoy your free breakfast at the pool as a perk for being a Gold Card member, easily a ten dollar value in sobe.

Free loungers on the beach are also included.

I will be back.

We stayed at The Hotel for 3 nights and this was our second visit here. When we first checked in, we were greeted by friendly staff from the bell to the front desk. Our room was so nice and clean...love the color scheme. The pool area was nice as well...enjoyed our Continental breakfast up there each morning in the breeze overlooking the ocean. We were up eating breakfast a little earlier than we probably would have been if it weren't for the garbage trucks that came each morning at 7:15 to empty the dumpsters....it was pretty loud and obnoxious...but we are not the type to have been up partying til 3am, so it didn't really ruin anything, just a rude awakening...if we were partiers, we would have been very unhappy.

Our stay also included chair and towel service on the beach by some very friendly and helpful staff....overall our stay was fantastic, in the heart of South Beach, but we couldn't hear the noise that this city brings at night, so we could rest, get up and do it all over again. We will be back for sure.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the alley are loud in morning with garbage trucks!

Dear Tenisgirl,

Thank you for your review from your recent stay at The Hotel of South Beach. First, we apologize for the garbage pick up times and noise. Unfortunately, the times and noise is not something we can control. On a brighter side, we're glad that the early wake up did allow you to get the most out of our gorgeous beach!

We are very happy that you had an overall pleasant stay and enjoyed your room and the amenities offered. We look forward to welcoming you back!

Sincerely,
Sophia Gomez, CRM Specialist

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.
