“Best place to stay in South Beach!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 weeks ago via mobile

The Gale has so many things going for it - however - for the sake of brevity I will only keep it to the top three. 1) The hotel has recently underwent a renovation and the rooms / lobby / hallways etc. are so well designed that it is as if you are staying in an architecture magazine. 2) The rooftop pool has amazing views of South Beach - it also looks really cool at night. 3) The location simply can't be beat - as this section of South Beach as it has the coolest boutique hotels on the strip.

The hotel was everything we expected, clean,modern with a wonderful rooftop pool and bar. The staff went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable from check in to check out. The location was perfect for us just across from the beach and close to ocean drive for lots of restaurants and bars.

The hotel staff was excellent. The hotel is gorgeous and well maintained. The rooftop pool is fabulous. With that being said I have a few complaints. The food on the room service menu is way overpriced ($76.00 for 2 omelets and 2 coffees) for the quality and quantity of the food. We ordered breakfast through room service and the food was bland and sparse. The room was decorated very nicely but there was not a table to eat our room service breakfast at. The room we stayed in was luxurious but it had no window so it felt closed in. If I stay again I would request a room with a window. My only other complaint besides the breakfast meal were the hidden fees. We booked the room for a specific price but when we checked in we were informed of resort fees, which was fine but upon check out there were more fees. I would prefer to know about all the fees upfront in order to budget for them. Overall, I would recommend this hotel and would stay with them again.

Car was damaged by their contracted parking staff. They will not fix. They will not return phone calls. Very poor customer service. I am not afraid to spend $. We spent $500 for dinner Friday nigh at the Gale. I will never spend another penny at the Gale.

clean, knowledgeable staff, great food, bar service, pool service, & front desk very organized.
The location was nice - close enough to night life if needed it and far enough not to be in the mist of it.
The electric car service is great to see it all and then pick where you want to be!
