“Well adorned Boutique ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2014

We have stayed in many boutique hotels in SOBE, but The Gale hotel was by far the most well adorned. The building has been totally renovated into a modern interior designer's dream. The staff was extremely friendly and went out of their way to make sure our stay was comfortable and nice. The rooftop pool is wonderful as well as the restaurant and lounge. Definitely order pizza at the restaurant if you want some authentic Italian style pizza. The room was small but well designed so felt large enough. We had a corner room in the new section so we had absolute quiet during our stay. If there was only one critical thing to say, it would be that the servers at the restaurant were not always friendly or attentive; considering they add 18% gratuity off the bat they should be much better!

Stayed July 2014

We had a great time at Gale Hotel. The stuff was really nice and helpful! We enjoyed Dolce ' s Restaurant - the food was delicious! We wish our room was a little bigger but overall we had a great experience.

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.
