“Great time in Miami”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

My hubby and I recently stood at hotel (2/28 to 3/4).

The overall stay was great. Personnel was attentive and the atmosphere is great!! Any time I had a question the staff was there to help. From the front desk to the room / cleaning services. We asked for a late checkout and it was granted which was a great thing as we were able to enjoy our last day with the comfort of being able to use the room to get ready for our departure.

Room tip: we stood in 708 - no balcony while the other floors had balcony and some direct access to the pool. It felt a little claustrophobic because the windows did not open.

The layout was nice ; ) while some people thought it to be small, we enjoyed it.

Continental breakfast is included in the resort fee; along with bike rentals which I thought was great.

The pool was maintained well and the service guy was always there to help give towels and water. TIP: go early if you want a decent spot by the pool.

Personally we lounged in the front of the hotel and watched the Miami life go by; going out later to hit the strip up.

I will definitely be going to the hotel again.

This is one of the best hotels I have ever visited! It is a beautifully decorated hotel with nice colours and furniture. The pictures on the website are nice but the hotel looks even better in real life and has a fantastic atmosphere. In addition, it is very clean and you just feel very comfortable in the room or everywhere else in the hotel. The best part though is the staff; EVERYONE just performs its best to give you a wonderful experience. I would especially like to mention Cree, the front desk manager, who made sure we could prolong our stay when basically all hotels in Miami Beach were fully booked (including Hotel Victor). Thank you for making our Miami Beach stay to the best one during our Florida holidays! We hope to be back soon!

Stayed from March 2nd to 6th on business and a little pleasure and have to say that this hotel had it all, great service, great atmosphere, great food, great rooms and beautiful views. Signe worked the front desk and she was fabulous, went above and beyond to help you. Great personality and a kind heart. Marcelis the bellhop at Hotel Victor was amazing and made sure that everything I needed happened. He also offered car service if you needed to get around and did not want to rely on a cab. Great rates as well. Top notch service Marcelis, thank you.
The rooms were clean and well arranged. Maid service came each night when you are out to prepare your room for the evening which was a great touch. Location was perfect. You could take one of the bikes they offered anytime to tour the beach or anywhere else. Food at the BICE restaurant located in the hotel was very good and the service was hit and miss. Oh yes the pool area was spectacular, with great service but just an FYI the drinks like a Mango Daiquiri was $22 US, which is a little rich in my opinion. Overall a great hotel and I would highly recommend to anyone and look forward to going back. Thanks from a very happy customer.

My wife and I recently stayed for three nights while in town for the South Beach Wine & Food Festival. We arrived on a Thursday evening. Check-in was smooth, and the front desk staff were great. The lobby is very inviting, with a huge table with iMacs on both sides and a bowl of fresh apples (pun perhaps intended?). We spotted the loaner cruiser bikes near the elevator. Sadly, we didn't get a chance to try one.

Our room (321), was very nice, clean, and relatively spacious. We had a small balcony that faced the pool, and we could see a bit of the ocean. The bathroom was really nice, with an alcove for the toilet with a frosted door. The shower was right next it with a small bench, and fantastic overhead shower head. There was also a nice, stand alone, deep tub in the bathroom. One thing that we noticed right away, and something that persisted through our stay, were ants in and around the bathroom. A maintenance person came up on Friday and sprayed. The ants went away for about a day, but came back again by Saturday afternoon. While not a deal breaker, the ants were a nuisance, and caused us some concern about bring them home with us.

The decor of the room was clean, and very modern. The bed was very comfortable. The lighting in the bathroom, and room generally, could have been better. Particularly in the evening. The television didn't get much use, but it was a nice size for the room. (A printed station guide would be useful. The housekeeping staff were very nice, and thorough.

I had a chance to use the fitness room. It was decently appointed, particularly given the small space. .

Room Tip: I would recommend asking for a room facing the pool on one of the higher floor. The noise level from...

This was a lovely hotel but more suitable for couples than families. Was traveling with my sister so I reserved a suite rather than just a room. The suite consisted of a large bedroom and an almost equally large bathroom. Being a suite, I was surprised to find that the room had no sofa. The only chair was one provided for the room's desk. Also there was no microwave. The mini-refrigerator was of little use as it was already stocked as a wet-bar. The open design of the bedroom and bath area also created some privacy issues.

The staff was great. Everyone was friendly and helpful. The restaurant was excellent and the pool area a delight. The hotel's location was ideal.

Room Tip: The front corner rooms have a lovely view of the ocean and the morning's sunrise.

Thank you for your observations and review. I am happy that you enjoyed all the great amenities that our hotel has to offer. Please accept my apology for the minor inconvenience you encounter during your visit with us. Like most boutique hotels, we do not have microwaves and refrigerators in our rooms. We have a full service restaurant as you mentioned and room service is also available. We have six room types including our ocean view suites and most of them include a sofa. Making our guests comfortable is our priority! We trust that we will be able to better accommodate you and your family on your next visit.

Was hoping for somewhere good and got VERY good. Great location, great staff and fantastic pool area.
We had booked for a post cruise stay for a few days and although check in wasn't till 15.00 our room was ready for our arrival at 11.00. The room 518 was right in the corner of the building and quite dark so asked for another one the next day.....no problem for Cree and we moved to 417 straight away.
Free breakfast was unexpected but nice ( I just don't know why boiling water is unavailable to make tea in America). The pool was on 2nd floor and overlooked Ocean Drive which was fab. The pool attendant Lester deserves a mention as nothing was a bother for him... cups of cold water, fresh towels etc. Definitely recommend this hotel to anyone.

Room Tip: Ask for east facing rooms as they get sun all morning and have balconies.
