“Very fun hotel location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

Love the hip bohemian style of this hotel and the pool deck and poolside restaurant is wonderful! The gym and spa is great. The location is awesome with walking access to everywhere! I'm a fan of the upstairs rooms facing the internal courtyard with the fire pit. Nighttime swim in the pool and jacuzzi is awesome as the pool deck is lively till late.
Breakfast near reception is also very pleasant but could be a bit faster service. Overall I'm a big fan and tend to stay here on all my Miami visits. I'm about to have my 3rd stay at the Standard in August - looking most forward to it!

I stayed at this hotel with a friend that was visiting from the UK and we were talking about how run down the place looks, you can see stains on the floor, the wood deck outside the room has not been sanded and sealed in years, there are cracks on the paint and we found a couple of roaches in the bathroom. We had lunch outside and the hostess (a gorgeous black girl) gave us MAJOR attitude because I chose a table close to the fan because it was hot, she said that table was reserved (which was not, because nobody sat there) and then she proceeded to tell us to chose whatever table we wanted (we were the only ones there) and then she rolled her eyes. The whole interaction was totally uncalled for.
The waiters were nice and attentive, so that made us forget about the hostess bad vibe.

Room Tip: This place is known for their spa which will not disappoint. The rest could be a lot better.

This is actually a review for the restaurant! This is a great location and our waiter Anthony was fantastic! I would recommend The Standard to anyone in the South Beach area!!in my experience South Beach has a lot of places to choose from but this place is hard to be disappointed with. The sunset from here is amazing! Do yourself a favor and stop here for dinner... or even just a glass of wine. There desserts are fantastic as well.. but I will say Trip Advisor is a real pain in the butt.. you have to write a book before you can post your review... really!

This hotel is the only reason I visit Miami. Living in NYC, I could not care less to hear the techno beat 24/7, all I want to do is relax, get in touch with nature, my inner self, eat healthy, take sunrise yoga class by the sea, swim in the uncrowded pool, detox in the mud bath all that while listening to smooth jazz.

After dinner you can sit in the outdoor wicker lounge area around the bond fire, sip on your favorite, quality drink (no cheap liquor here) and look at the stars.

If you absolutely need the techno or any other beat, if you want to explore the nightlife, South Beach is in 15 min walking distance, 5 min with a cab. You have it all at one spot. You don't even need a cab.

I absolutely love this place and I am sad when I have to leave. I actually would like to move in there ;-)

Room Tip: All rooms are pretty much alike, they are spacious, they have an additional bathtub in the front on...

Just spent 3 glorious days being pampered at this Spa hotel .continues ice water served at the pool while lounging on beautiful chaises with plush yellow striped towels. Then the use of the most peaceful and relaxing up to date spa. Restaurant on site ,overlooking the bay, was great . While the hotel was built in the 40 ,they have done a fine job up dating the rooms. And......only a short walk to the night life of Lincoln road .

One of my favorite hotels! When you're staying at The Standard, Miami, you feel like you're on a secret tropical island. One of my favorite moments was doing sunrise yoga at the dock and seeing dolphins swim by. Also, the spa services are exceptional and I wish I could bring that Hammam home with me.

Room Tip: Ask for the room with an outdoor tub and soak outside.

I would like to start off on a positive note and say that the service at the spa was incredible - A special thank you to Alex (didn't get his last name but works at the spa) who made our experience that much better. He was so detail-oriented and hospitable. Thank you, Alex!

Also, Jorge who works at the pool, was extremely attentive and happy.

Now, for the not so positive experience, Crispy sucks the positive energy out of The Standard. She does not know how to speak to people in a professional matter and always has an unpleasant look on her face. Management Team, please put her through a Customer Service/Motivational and Inspirational training.

Aside from that, thanks to the rest for the wonderful stay. Continue living up to the standards. LOL!
