The Hotel Victor is one of the older Art Deco Hotels in South Beach but has recently had most of its rooms and many of the common areas remodeled. I like the location of the hotel right on Ocean Drive and across from the massive South Miami Beach.
I didn't like the way that my room was organized, and the bathrooms use the European half-glass shower over bathtub concept that I never understand - everything still gets wet. In this case for the sake of style, the old high sided tub was maintained, making it difficult to get in or out of the shower without some fear for falling. Likewise, there's just no surface space on which to put your shaving or makeup kit, even though the bath area had lots of room.
The pool area, bar area and the wonderful Bice Restaurant that's attached, are very well done and you'll like - maybe even love - the interesting food they offer. The quality is very good and it's a good choice for your breakfast, lunch or dinner. You can make many other choices nearby, but you won't find better quality.
I liked the staff, and found everyone to be helpful and friendly. I was a bit put off by the very high prices for parking my car - but then, this is SoBe and the prices for everything there are higher than normal and you ought to be prepared for it.
One last comment, every restaurant and bar in the area automatically includes a service charge, be careful that you don't double tip - as it's not the norm in the US and after making this mistake the first morning and later learning of it - I realized that no one from that time forward ever reminded me - or corrected me when I started to add an additional 18% or so onto the bill. Buyer beware.
