“Great Ambiance and Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

The Gale couldn't have been in a better location in terms of South Beach hotels. It has all the amenities of a big, massive resort but with a really intimate feel. The rooms were clean and the staff was friendly. The bar in the lobby also had great drinks and bartenders. It's close enough to all the craziness of South Beach but once you get back to The Gale, you could relax and get some rest or nurse your hangover on the rooftop pool without kids screaming around you or drunk people shouting.

Nice boutique Hotel, very good location and staff very welcoming
the hotel have a very nice SP on the roof of the hotel , the rooms are very nice a bite small but the furniture are new and modern .
The only bad point is that the room does not have a table and chair if you need to work or to open a laptop, petty
All the rest provide us a great stay

I went to this spectacular hotel for my birthday weekend with my husband and wished I could have stayed longer. From the moment we arrived we were treated stupendously; there was even a bottle of champagne with a lovely note waiting in the room for us. It was such a nice surprise and gesture from the hotel manager, Oscar, I was so impressed. The hotel is decorated very beautifully and is nice and quiet, the perfect place for a relaxing/ romantic weekend. Our room was very comfortable and extremely clean. The rooftop infinity pool is incredible I really enjoyed lounging around and trying some delicious cocktails from the bar there. The location is also perfect because it is in the heart of South Beach and we were right next to Lincoln Road which has all the dining and shops. Also, the customer service at this hotel is top notch, my sincerest compliments to the hotel manager who was very welcoming and wonderful in assisting us with places to go and things to do. He truly helped make this weekend one we will never forget and always remember with the utmost joy.

We stayed only one night aft er a cruise and wish we could have stayed longer. Loved it. Got to The Gale at 9:00 because we got off the ship early just so we could store our luggage and they already had out room ready for us. Supposed to be 4:00 pm check in! No extra charge. Staff is incredible! If they can do it, they will! Beautiful pool, lounge, club and restarantula areas. Loved it. Felt like family.

I stayed at the Gale for 4 days and couldn't have asked for a better place. The hotel is right on Collins Avenue and is literally 1 block away from the beach (a very small block). It's a boutique hotel with only 6 floors. The decor is amazing. Very clean throughout and I can't say enough good things about the staff that work there. The rooms are a good size ... I upgraded to the Terrazzo room that has a balcony which was very nice if you are considering doing the same. Has nice white patio furniture you can take a quick rest before venturing off. The restaurant Dolce is worth checking out too ... good food. At night the bar at the Regent which is on the other end of the hotel is really nice too. Nice place to have drinks after a long day. The pool is on the roof. It's nice. Very clean. I personally prefer the beach over a pool but whatever you feel like that day the pool is a good choice too. Concierge text you to see how your stay is going ... they text you ! For anything they are there for you ... cabs, directions, recommendations. Anything. It's an upscale hotel but it doesn't have the pretentiousness you would expect for a SB stay. It's very close to everything. Shopping (Lincoln, Washington) and restaurants. I would definitely recommend this hotel for anyone's next stay in South Beach.

Thank you to everyone at Gale SB !

My wife and I just got back from a 4 nite stay at the Gale hotel. We had a great time! The hotel is sharp looking, very clean, excellant service by everyone, really nice rooftop pool and great location to everything. At check in, they honord our free upgrade for posting our reservation on Facebook with no issues at all. They arranged for taxi pick up the morning we left, everyone is friendly and helpful. The Signature room is small, with no dresser, but was not an issue for us and with the balcony it was more than fine. I only have 2 suggestions; the lights on the side of the sink made it difficult to see in the mirror due to glare from lights and a waste basket in th bedroom area would be helpful. We highly recommend the Gale hotel and will def be coming back again!

Perfect stay! Clean rooms and great location. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. The lounge down stairs was very relaxing and had great live jazz and excellent service from adorable Iris. Gili was super accommodating even after we checked out. I'll be back again! Thank you all so much!
